If you want to keep up-to-date with news concerning Washington Huskies athletics all in one easy-to-digest format, follow the official UW Dawg Pound Twitter account and subscribe to Ryan Priest’s lists of UW’s beat reporters, Washington athletes, Washington coaches, and Washington athletics prospects.

- Chris Fetters has the movers and shakers on the Top-247 player list for 2019. Some Husky commits and targets making moves.
- The Husky Haul wonders if Jacob Eason can have an impact in 2018 even though he can’t play in any games.
- Greg Biggins has the story on the latest Husky commit, 4-star Athlete Asa Turner. There was some confusion about why the news was out, but no “woof” from Chris Petersen. Sounds like they asked coach to hold off so they could inform other schools of his decision to commit to the Dawgs.

FOR THE RECORD: When asked before Oregon's 2017 game in Seattle how he intended to defend #Washington’s Dante Pettis on punt returns, former Ducks coach Willie Taggart quipped, “Kick it to him.”— SportsPac12 (@SportsPac12) July 12, 2018
Pettis responded with his ninth career punt return for a touchdown, an FBS record.
Remember when there were like four Huskies in the whole league?
