“The Huskies did an amazing job sealing the deal with him and it’s a huge credit to the kind of program Petersen has built,” Greg Biggins, national recruiting analyst, wrote for “When you think of a program that is both highly respected for their play on the field but also for the high character kids they bring in, Washington is one of the first schools that comes to mind. McDuffie just looks like a Washington type of recruit and the Huskies had to beat out several programs out West and national as well. This is a kid who was coveted by both local schools, UCLA and USC but Washington established a better relationship and his comfort level on his visits put them over the top. If he continues to develop at his current pace, he could be one of the top defensive backs the school has produced and that’s saying something.”
