Lets take a look at the depth chart going into fall camp. Offensively the Huskies look pretty good on paper going into this campaign.
As long as Jake Locker stays healthy for 13 games things are going to be just fine. The problem is there isn't any experienced depth behind him if he goes down. Nick Montana and Keith Price are good looking QB's but Ronnie Fouch would have been a better early season insurance policy. In a perfect world Price would perform clean up this season while Montana sits out.
Chris Polk returns after sitting out the spring with his second consecutive shoulder surgery. Fogerson and Bronson provide experienced depth and could see time at fullback and H-Back. Washington has a lot of depth here and it is nice to have the addition of two potential home run hitters in Cooper and Callier...both served notice that they were ready to play this spring and are future stars. I expect both of them to make an instant impact on special teams.
Fullback - H Back
The Huskies have plenty of depth at what has become more of a collection of hybrid players. Sylvester is a pure blocking FB while Boyce and Makaula are being counted on to become receiving threats. Zach Fogerson is a good blend of everything. He can run, block, and catch.
Jermaine Kearse Jr - Deandre Goodwin Sr - DiAndre Campbell Fr
Devin Aguilar Jr - Cody Bruns Jr - Kevin Smith Fr
The top three guys have elevated their game way past the guys on the second unit. Campbell and Smith have already opened some eyes in pre-season work outs. Bruns, Polk, and Leonard need to stay ahead of the kids if they expect to have a future at UW.
Chris Izbicki Jr - Michael Hartvigson Fr - Marlion Bennett - Rs-Fr - Evan Hudson Fr
Izbicki had a solid spring but who is the second tight end? You could see the second TE replaced by an H-Back quite a bit this year which means that Dorson Boyce, Marlion Bennett, and Kimo Makaula could all end up being a factor this season. Hartvigson may surprise a few people this camp.
The Huskies return four experienced starters not including Greg Christine, Mykena Ikehara, and Nick Wood who each received starts last season. Ideally offensive line coaches like to have an experienced rotation of eight guys and Washington has that.
What Washington also has are seven freshman lineman who are the backbone of the programs future. Colin Porter and Erik Kohler look like the guys most ready to play if needed.
