Here's a look at the prospects who will be in attendance:

5-star offensive lineman Isendre Ahfua (O’Dea HS; Washington; 2024) — The nation's No. 1 interior offensive lineman is a 6-foot-5, 330-pound prospect who picked up offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Oregon, Texas, Texas A&M, USC and others.

5-star running back Jason Brown (O’Dea HS; Washington; 2024) — Rated the nation's No. 5 athlete, Jason Brown projects as a special running back at the collegiate level.

He holds early offers from Alabama, Florida State, Michigan State, Oregon, Texas, Texas A&M, USC, Washington and others. 

4-star cornerback Jasiah Wagoner (Spanaway Lake HS; Washington; 2023) — The 5-foot-11, 170-pound defensive back is one of America's top cornerbacks - and he's got the offer sheet to show for it.

Wagoner has offers from Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, Penn State, Texas and others.

He's rated the nation's No. 13 cornerback

4-star linebacker Blake Nichelson (Matenca HS; California; 2023) — The 6-foot-3, 200-pound ‘backer holds nearly 20 offers highlighted by Florida State, Nebraska, Oregon, Washington, UCLA, USC and others.

4-star linebacker Brayden Platt (Yelm HS; Washington; 2024) — The nation's No. 6 linebacker has also been a standout in track and field.

The 6-foot-1, 220-pound athlete has already generated offers from Arizona, California, Michigan, Oregon, Utah and Washington.

Platt is one of the nation's top linebacker and could be in line to earn All-American game invitations. 

4-star cornerback Rahshawn Clark (Federal Way HS; Washington; 2024) — A top-100 prospect in the class of 2024, Clark looks the part of the next big-time Washington defensive back. 

Clark has a chance to climb even higher in the rankings and holds offers from Arizona, California, Michigan State, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington and many others. 

4-star safety Marquawn McCraney (Highline; Washington; 2024) — One of the top safety prospects I the West, McCraney holds offers from Arizona, California, Oregon State, USC and others. 

4-star WR/TE Joey Olsen (Lakeridge HS; Oregon; 2024) —Joey Olsen is rated the nation's No. 8 tight end, but some programs view him as a wide receiver. 

He'll likely play a hybrid role at the collegiate level.

The 6-foot-5, 200-pound pass-catcher holds offers from Oregon, Oregon State, Penn State, Tennessee, Utah and others. 

4-star tight end A.J. Pugliano (North Medford HS; Oregon; 2024) —Oregon is experiencing a bit of a "down cycle" when it comes to elite prospects in the state of Oregon.

But  the state is absolutely loaded at the tight end position.

Central Catholic's Riley Williams is the nation's No. 2 tight end in 2023, while Olsen and Pugliano are both bluechip recruits in 2024.

Pugliano is the nation's No. 5 tight end

3-star cornerback Andre Piper-Jordan Jr. (Federal Way HS; Washington; 2023) — Few players in the Northwest are better positioned to rise up the rankings than Piper-Jordan.

A three-star prospect, the Federal Way athlete holds offers from Arizona, Oregon, Oregon State, Virginia Tech.

More could - and should - be on the way. 

3-star offensive tackle Marquise Thorpe-Taylor (Mount Tacoma; Washington; 2024) - One of the top offensive tackles in the Northwest, Marquise Thorpe-Taylor holds an early offer from Arizona.

But with more Pac-12 programs getting a look at him this weekend, the 6-foot-5, 290-pound offensive lineman could soon be adding to that list. 

3-star athlete Israel Polk (Pittsburg HS; California; 2023) — Polk has offers from the Mountain West and Pac-12 Conference.

3-star athlete Lamar Radcliffe (Sacramento HS; California: 2024) — The rising 6-foot-2, 225-pound prospect already holds offers from Arizona, California, Oregon, USC and others.

He’s got offers from Arizona, California, Oregon, Oregon State, Utah, Washington and others.

NR tight end T’Andre Waverly (Kamiak; Washington; 2025) — Like Lawson, Waverly has already put himself on the map despite being a 2025 prospect.

The 6-foot-4, 210-pound playmaker holds early offers from Arizona State and Washington.

NR defensive lineman A.J. Tanupo (Eastside Catholic; Washington; 2024) - "Not rated" is a bit of a misnomer when it comes to A.J. Tanupo, as a true star rating is clearly in his future.

The 6-foot-3, 265-pound defensive lineman already holds an offer from Arizona, and more could soon be on the way. 

Tanupo is one of the top 2024 defensive line prospects in the Northwest. 

3-star offensive lineman Devin Brooks (Clackamas; Oregon; 2024) — One of the fastest-rising offensive line prospects in the West, Devin Brooks has seen his stock skyrocket this summer.

He holds offers from Arizona, California, Miami (Fla.), Oregon, Oregon State, Washington and others.

The 6-foot-4, 290-pound offensive lineman could wind up being an All-American selection, as well as a four-star prospect.

That put him squarely on the map.

Where will he end up? It's an intriguing recruitment to watch unfold. 

3-star athlete Mark Hamper (West Linn; Oregon; 2023) — If you were drafting a high school football team to win a state title in the state of Oregon, it's possible West Linn's Mark Hamper will be the No. 1 overall pick.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound athlete is one of the most under-appreciated players in the state and could earn scholarships with a big camp showing.

Hamper has an early offer from Portland State. 

3-star defensive end Julian Lee (North Thurston; Washington; 2023) — Look out!

North Thurston's Julian Lee is a 6-foot-5, 255-pound edge-rusher who has looked the part of a Power 5 conference athlete all spring.

Lee holds an offer from Arizona and could add multiple offers when Power 5 conference coaching staffs get to see him in person. 

3-star tight end Dorian Thomas (Kentridge; Washington; 2023) — Committed to Oregon State

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound pass-catcher holds offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Washington, Washington State and others.

Oregon State is working hard to hold on to the commitment, but other Pac-12 programs are coming and have offered since his decision.

3-star linebacker Isaiah Patterson (Yelm; Washington; 2024) — A recent offer from Oregon put Isaiah Patterson squarely on the map.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound ‘backer could really blossom into one of the premier linebackers on the West Coast. 

3-star cornerback Leroy Bryant (Angelo Rodriguez; California; 2023) — Rated the nation’s No. 46 cornerback, Bryant holds offers from Arizona, Colorado, Oregon, Oregon State and others.

3-star wide receiver Malachi Durant (Puyallup; Washington; 2024) — Wide receiver Malachi Durant appears to be "next man up" in FSP's program, which is usually a sign of future stardom.

He holds offers from California, Missouri, Oregon and others.

Durant will be a "must see" during 1-on-1's at this weekend's event. 

3-star offensive tackle Jensen Somerville (Lehi; Utah; 2024) — An early offer from Arizona State is a great indicator that Somerville's stock is rising.

The nation's No. 35 offensive tackle should add offers with a big performance. 

3-star wide receiver David Wells (Lakes; Washington; 2023) — David Wells is looking to elevate his recruitment this spring.

He's collected offers from the Mountain West and Big Sky, but it will be interesting to see if he picks up a Pac-12 offer soon. 

3-star quarterback/safety Jack Wagner (Tualatin; Oregon; 2023) — Tualatin's Jack Wagner was a change-of-pace quarterback behind Jackson Jones last season, but has a chance to be the state's top quarterback this season.

He also projects as a possible defensive back at the collegiate level.

Wagner will be a late breakout star for Tualatin, and it could translate to his recruitment. 

If he's dead set on playing quarterback in the Power 5, it's possible he'd really blossom at the junior college level. 

3-star cornerback Gabe Tahir (Kamiah; Washington; 2023) — Nation’s No. 81 cornerback holds offers from Penn State and several smaller schools.

He’s got a chance to impress the Pac-12 Conference this weekend.

3-star cornerback Kyan McDonald (O’Dea; Washington; 2024) — One of the best, most versatile cornerbacks in the West, Kyan McDonald could be an elite nickel or develop into an outside cornerback.

He holds offers from Arizona, California, Michigan, Michigan, Michigan State, Oregon and others. 

McDonald could add a fourth star before his recruitment is over. 

3-star cornerback Ishaan Daniels (Bellevue; Washington; 2023) — Ishaan Daniels holds offers from Arizona and several others, and is rated the nation's No. 122 cornerback. 

3-star linebacker Xe’ree Alexander (Kennedy Catholic; Washington; 2023) — One of the Northwest's top breakout candidates, Xe'ree Alexander is rated the nation’s No. 75 linebacker.

He holds offers from Arizona, Arizona State and several others, but more Power 5s should be on the way.

Alexander could really "pop" this spring and summer. 

3-star linebacker Richie Anderson (Tualatin; Oregon; 2023) — Tualatin linebacker Richie Anderson might be one of the most under-recruited players in Oregon.

He could be a top-3 player in  the state in 2023, but needs to put in more work in the weight room, as his strength remains a question. 

The potential is there. 

3-star cornerback Elijah Brady (West Seattle; Washington; 2023) — Rated the nation's No. 164 cornerback, Elijah Brady has plenty of Mountain West and Big Sky offers.

Next step? A potential Pac-12 scholarship. 

3-star athlete Charles Greer (De La Salle; California; 2023) — Greer holds a Pac-12 offer from Utah and is rated the nation's No. 103 athlete

3-star athlete Keenan Kuntz (Mead; Washington; 2023) — Offers from Eastern Washington and Pittsburgh put Keenan Kuntz on the map.

Could he pick up more offers soon?
