Washington Football is getting a huge head start on 2019, and could compete for the country’s best offense.
Everything is going right for Washington football right now. According to Chris Petersen’s Monday press conference, All-American left tackle Trey Adams could be returning for a fifth year at Washington. “I think that’s the plan right now… but you know, things are always fluid,” said head coach Chris Petersen during his weekly press conference. Adams has been practicing for the past two weeks but has yet to appear in any games this season for UW since having back surgery in early September.
Projecting a 2019 Offense
While we already did this to scare the other 11 teams in the Pac-12 on Halloween, let’s go over it again. Jacob Sirmon at quarterback, protected by a more experienced line that’s now anchored by an All-American in Adams. There will be an excellent receiving corps in Aaron Fuller, Ty Jones and most likely, highly touted freshman Marquis Spiker. Putting this together with an experienced running back corps of Salvon Ahmed, Sean McGrew, and Kamari Pleasant, and you have a great corps of guys ready to play.
Adams can still play in 2018 and after the bye week, there will be only a maximum of four games remaining on the schedule. And with the NCAA’s new redshirt rule, he’s allowed to play in up to four games without using a year of eligibility. The Huskies and Jake Browning are really going to need the boost, as they’ve been playing “don’t lose” offense late in the game, instead of putting their foot on the gas pedal and attacking. Getting Adams back should change that.
