Weeks ago, new UW head coach Kalen DeBoer announced he would be retaining Junior Adams as the Huskies’ wideout coach. When the Early Signing Period rolled around, Adams’ presence in Seattle still was enough to seal the deal with 4-star wideout Germie Bernard and the Nevada prospect signed with the Washington program.

Since Adams’ defection to Oregon to be the Ducks’ new wideout coach, the Washington wideout room has fallen on some shaky ground. And on Wednesday it lost Bernard, per a report from 247Sports’ Justin Thind.

It’s worth pointing out that Thind is a Michigan State reporter for 247, and the Spartans picked up a Crystal Ball for the speedy wideout shortly after news broke.

Bernard was the highest-rated recruit in the Huskies’ class. The 6-foot-2 wideout put up 956 yards and 12 touchdowns as a senior, averaging 18 yards a catch. He also got 37 rushing attempts that produced 452 rushing yards (12.2 per carry) and 4 scores. He seemed like a guy who could push for immediate playing time, and his departure will hit hard.
