Low Priority

Low priority needs on the team is not the same as not a priority. In fact, low priority simply conveys that the team is focusing on players with critical skillsets which are very valuable and in low supply on the roster.

In other words, low priority are critical skillsets where the supply of players is adequate for the team’s immediate needs.  These are important areas to address on the team routinely, because  the best programs continue to have younger players in the queue to assume starting roles after a player moves on or is stricken with injury.

10 Special Teams
The Washington Huskies lost a kicker in Cameron Van Winkle ,and his career 81.25 percent accuracy.  As his replacement, the team is bringing in Joel Whitford.

9 Running Back
While the Huskies running back are intact from the 2016 season, there is always a need to place some fresh legs into the corral. And Salvon Ahmed is one of the Huskies highest rated recruits, earning a 4-star 83 point grade from ESPN. He was sought by 13 different schools.

8 Quarterback
The Huskies quarterback situation is good. But like running back, it’s always wise to add talent to the quarterback position. The team have four, but will likely take on a fifth in Jake Haener. Haener is a 3 star 77 points rating who was recruited by 10 schools. He will likely spend his first season learning the offense and training for the future to compete for the starting role.
