Good morning, Husky fans. It feels like it was just yesterday when I was saying “Wow, it’s almost June!” and now it’s almost over. Summer is breezing by, which can be good (football and basketball coming up!) and bad (school/bad weather approaching). Anyway, on with the links!
Bishop Sankey, Keith Price and Austin Seferian-Jenkins all check in in Athlon Sports’ top-15 Pac-12 Heisman candidates.
"With four starters back along the offensive line and his quarterback entering his third season as the starter, Sankey has a great chance to earn national acclaim as a junior. Even just a slight increase in production would place Sankey among the nation’s best."
The Huskies are adding another punter for the 2013 season. Now former Colorado punter Zach Grossnickle is enrolling in grad school at UW and plans to play his final season of eligibility here.
"Grossnickle doesn’t know yet whether he will be punting or placekicking or both for the Huskies. He plans to be prepared to compete for both jobs when practices begin in early August."
House of Sparky doesn’t think too highly of the Huskies offensive line, ranking the grouping seventh in the Pac-12.
"One thing the Huskies have: Experience. One thing the Huskies lack: Accolades. Even though the Huskies have four returning starters, the offensive line struggled mightily last season…Regardless, Washington has potential."
Lastly, SB Nation’s Bill Connelly gives you 10 things to know about Husky football this season.
"Keith Price will have options. Sankey and Callier are strong and competent, and in Williams and Seferian-Jenkins, he has one of the best one-two receiving combos in the conference. Seferian-Jenkins is basically everybody’s preseason All-American, and with ASJ receiving so much attention, Williams, an all-everything local recruit, has almost become underrated."
