If you want to keep up-to-date with news concerning the football program all in one easy-to-digest format, feel free to follow me on Twitter and to subscribe to my lists of UW's beat reporters, Washington athletes, Washington coaches, and Washington football prospects. To the Dots!
- The Sporting News named Dante Pettis a second-team All American punt returner yesterday. Pettis' two touchdown returns was tied for second-best in the nation, and his 16.9 yards per return average was the country's fifth-best.
- Chris Petersen filled one of his assistant coach vacancies yesterday by promoting offensive quality control coach Bush Hamdan to become Washington's wide receivers coach and pass game coordinator. In addition, Jimmy Lake has added the title of co-defensive coordinator to his resume, and Bob Gregory will take point as the special teams coordinator in addition to his job coaching linebackers. Chris reacts to the news.
- The Pac-12 released its 2016 football schedule yesterday. It features yet another back-to-back matchup against Stanford and Oregon, causing Chris to wonder if the Huskies got screwed.
In 2016, @UW_Football will have Stanford-Oregon back-to-back for fifth time in seven seasons. Huskies 1-7 in those games.— Adam Jude (@A_Jude) December 16, 2015
Not a particularly grueling road schedule, travel-wise, for UW -- only five road games, and two of them are in the PNW (Oregon, WSU).— Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) December 16, 2015
- The Dawgman guys spoke to 2017 offensive lineman Foster Sarell about his recruitment.
- Five-star quarterback recruit Jacob Eason accepted the Gatorade National Player of the Year Award yesterday, and reaffirmed his commitment to attend the University of Georgia. Sports Illustrated's Colin Becht calls the development "a huge recruiting win" for incoming Bulldog coach Kirby Smart.
- One year after calling up Vernon Adams to the Pac-12 level, the Oregon Ducks are again reaching into the Big Sky ranks for a starting quarterback, this time tapping Dakota Prukop out of Montana State.
Confirmed what was first reported by @BruceFeldmanCFB - Prukop has committed to Oregon. He has yet to be admitted to UO, needs to take GRE.— Chantel Jennings (@ChantelJennings) December 15, 2015
Ducks are re-defining QB recruiting, forget developing HS kids, just grab a grad-transfer lol https://t.co/p6IIYCgd18— Greg Biggins (@GregBiggins) December 15, 2015
- Arizona State has booted Jayme Otomewo and Deonte Reynolds, who were arrested on suspicion of burglary.
