DiAndre Campbell And Andrew Hudson To Participate In Spring Ball

Otto Greule Jr

The Huskies will welcome back two payers that seemed to have been pushed out the door by the previous coaching staff.

The WR and DE will take part in the team's spring practices, which begin this week, in an effort to get back into the team and finish their careers by playing out their eligibility.

Both players were redshirt juniors during the 2013 season, but were academic seniors and not major contributors. Because of this, it seemed the previous staff had asked them to move along to clear up space in the form of scholarships for younger players -- most likely in the 2014 class. Chris Petersen and company, however, seem to believe that the two have some value to add to the team yet, and are giving them a fair shake and a clean slate.

Because of the injury to Kasen Williams and the suspension of Damore'ea Stringfellow, it seems that DiAndre Campbell is a lock to make it onto the fall roster (unseating fan favorite Garbage Can on the depth chart) and likely get some game action in the 2014 season as well. He was hampered by injuries in his career, but showed occasional flashes and was always lauded as an excellent blocking receiver.

Andrew Hudson was a guy who played a ton in 2012 when Hau'oli Kikaha was lost to injury -- he made Honorable Mention All Pac-12 -- but was supplanted by Kikaha's return and the previous staff opted for the youth of guys like Joe Mathis and Marcus Farria as reserves (burning their redshirts being a move that many questioned).

Its a fantastic opportunity for these two young men, and you have to tip your cap to Chris Petersen for giving them a shot.
