HUSKY SPRING FOOTBALL
Mon Apr 02, 2018 12:52 pm
  • The defense is typically ahead of the offense at this point and that has certainly been true of the Husky's spring practice so far this year. I have no worries about the defense but the offense is really going to have to step it up this year. With future 1st rounder Trey Adams holding down the LT spot I think Myles Gaskin is going to have a great year. It also appears that Jake Browning's shoulder has finally regained its full strength, and while he may not have a cannon for an arm, his accuracy suffered last year.

    The big story this year will be the receivers, I believe that is the key to whether the Huskies will return to 2016 form. I also believe that this team has the potential to be better than that team.

Ty Jones

  • Ty Jones has put on some weight and it must be in the form of muscle s he has increased his speed. Huskies really need him to emerge to his potential. 6'4" 215 lbs, he is the big receiver we need.

Trey Adams
Fri Apr 06, 2018 10:55 am
  • Trey Adams coming along well in his recovery. This O-line is huge w/every lineman 6-5 or 6-6 and 300 lbs+. It's an experienced line as well, especially at the all-important tackle positions. Browning shouldn't be hurting for pass protection and Gaskin should have some nice holes opened for him as well.

  • I hope JB's shoulder is healed...That would be a much needed boost.

UW Huskies spring practice notes: 4/9
Mon Apr 09, 2018 4:12 pm

  • Intrigued by WR Andre Baccellia. Fast with great hands, he came on toward the end of last season. I see a little of Angry Doug percolating in Baccellia.

    Ty Jones is just going to need to catch a lot of passes to season his hands. For some reason, young big receivers tend to struggle with consistency in catching the football. You would think taller means they usually have bigger hands, so catching the football should be easier, generally speaking. But that's rarely the case. It's all mental and requires developing consistency in motor skills for the big WR.

    Currently, Fuller is leading the pack.

    The couple reports I've seen mentioned Yankoff with some nice runs and Sirmon with some nice long throws.

    Open practice this weekend so I think we'll hear more.

    It's really too early to know with Browning getting most of reps with 1st string O but one of those articles stated Sirmon had one of the best throws all spring.

  • Everyone thought the Huskies were doomed when we lost all those DB's to the NFL but this squad is talented AND deep AND extremely well-coached.

  • Nice Imfo Dome..
    I think people forget UW redshirts players just like anyone else and gets
    JUCO transfers as well if I'm not mistaken.What this means is you can be
    suprised by talent that you never saw last season in different ways.
    Any freshman talent that plays after all that is a bonus,
    It all starts with the head coach and we damn sure have a good one,

  • I’m not confident in Browning. IMHO he is the weak link. Time for him to take a big step up and prove me and the other doubters wrong.

  • Browning the weak link? A quarterback that completed nearly 70% of his passes and has a very low turnover ratio is the weakest link on the team?

    People got down on Browning last year because he didn't have a comparable year to '16. The biggest difference between '16 and last year was Browning had Ross, Pettis, and McClatcher in '16. Last year he just had Pettis and unproven young receivers AND he was coming off major shoulder injury. The biggest question mark, or as you say, "weak link," is the receiving corp where no #1 receiver has yet to emerge.

    Ahmed is my guy. He and Yankoff are my two favorite Huskies. I like Rapp as well.

  • Browning does his job well when all the right pieces are in place, but if just one part of the offense isn't working, he falls apart pretty quickly.

    Salvon is a family friend, we are all very excited for his future.

    Rapp is a future first-rounder.

  • As I posted earlier in the thread AF is looking like a #1 WR. He has the speed that we need at that position, just needs to refine his route running. Ty Jones is also coming on and w/that 6'4" frame will be a real force as he matures.

    Don't forget Andre Baccellia. He looks more dependable than Jones at this point.
