- Larry Stone writes meanwhile that the UW baseball team is peaking at exactly the right time.
- If you’re heading to Vegas over the summer (or potentially New Jersey if they move quickly) here are the O/U win totals for every college team. The Huskies are at 10.5.
- Scott Eklund at Dawgman gives a preview of Husky camp season which begins this weekend.
- The Dawgman guys also give their way too early predictions of the UW/Auburn game.
- And lastly they also caught up with 2019 UW QB commit Dylan Morris to talk with him going into the summer and his senior season of high school.
- A national perspective on the job Chris Petersen has done at Washington from the 247 network.
- Don’t have a dot for it but tonight at 11:59p is the deadline for players to withdraw from the NBA Draft and still maintain their college eligibility. The Huskies are obviously hoping that rising senior PF Noah Dickerson decides to return to UW after being named 1st team all Pac-12 last season. Other names of note who have yet to announce one way or the other as of this publishing include UCLA’s Jaylen Hands, San Diego State’s Jalen McDaniels (from Federal Way and the older brother of 2019 UW target Jaden McDaniels), and Missouri’s Jontay Porter. By my count there are approximately 30 players yet to decide as of right now.
- While not a UW-specific dot, this decision will boost Washington’s chances of winning next year while furthering the talent drain from the conference. Reid Travis is withdrawing from the NBA Draft but not going back to Stanford.
Kentucky is believed to be the heavy favorite to land graduate transfer Reid Travis. Would be a massive addition for John Calipari. https://t.co/4Bfr5ul7jF— Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) May 30, 2018
