Dots: Star Power Permeates the Washington Huskies’ Offense

A host of star players should allow the Dawgs to put plenty of points on the board come this fall.

  • Adam Jude’s preview for the Husky offense published in today’s edition of The Seattle Times. As you might expect, the heavy presence of veterans — including quarterback Jake Browning, wide receiver Dante Pettis, offensive linemen Coleman Shelton and Trey Adams, and running backs Myles Gaskin and Lavon Coleman — will favor the Huskies in most of their 2017 contests. On the other hand, how the Dawgs compensate for the loss of star pass-catcher John Ross and the status of Browning’s throwing shoulder stand out as the unit’s two most pressing questions. The good news for Husky fans is that both of these questions have apparent answers: Browning finished the spring practices with virtually no limitations on his farm following minor surgery, and speedsters like Chico McClatcher are in position to at least mimic, if not replicate, Ross’ 2016 production.
  • In case you missed it, a plethora of Dawgs were featured on a variety of post-season award watch lists that released last week.
  • When I was in eighth grade, I thought I was a stud because I could almost touch the rim on a regulation hoop. At 6-4 and 286 lbs., Columbia, Miss., eight-grader Jaheim Oatis is slightly more accomplished than I was at that point.
