What to look for
The team needs a lot of production from the passing game. And by rights, the team will turn to veterans from the 2017 season to take responsibility for improving this season. Surprisingly, the leading returning 2017 wide receivers are listed in descending order: Aaron Fuller, Andre Baccellia, Quinten Pounds, Chico McClatcher, Brayden Dickey, and Ty Jones. Keep in mind that they are still adapting in some degree to the coach of former Oregon offensive coordinator Matt Lubick. Lubick came to Washington after the Oregon coaching staff was dismissed in 2017.
More talent means great competition
GoHuskies.com posted an interview with Lubick after his hiring and you can catch that here. But I think the challenges of that 2017-2018 season passing game will be ironed out this season. How? Well that’s what to look for this spring.
Look for Aaron Fuller to get the coaches’ atention early this spring. He attracted interest at season’s end by stepping up fo the team in the last five games. He will be pushed hard by Andre Baccellia, who also flashed huge upside potential last season. And of course, there is 6-foot-4 Ty Jones, who looks every bit the part of a clutch catcher.
