Massillon (Ohio) Washington has a long and storied tradition of high school football greatness. It is rare when there is not at least one major college prospect at Washington. So it's not surprising that there are several fine prospects at Washington this year, with tight end Brett Huffman at the top of the list.
The 6-foot-5 and 230 pound Huffman caught 28 passes for 296 yards, averaging 10.6 per catch during his junior season. Huffman scored twice. He is also a very tough, physical, and aggressive blocker who plays a key role in his team's fine running game.
Recruiters have known about Huffman since his sophomore year when he started six games.
"I have three offers for sure," Huffman said. "Cincinnati, Syracuse, and Toledo have offered. And I think Duke is going to offer sometime soon.
"I'll definitely look at all of those schools, but I'm not looking to make a commitment yet. I went to junior days at the three that have offered.
"And I'm interested in Arizona State. I have family out there. And Georgia Tech, Indiana, Michigan, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Illinois is another one.
"And I visited Notre Dame twice. Boston College has been to my school. I'm pretty interested in those two.
"So far Illinois, Duke, and Indiana have called. And I talked to an Arizona State coach."
Asked if he has a favorite, Huffman said, "I like Notre Dame, and I want to see Boston College."
