The Seattle Times — You might think Kyler Manu shouldn’t start. The fifth-year Huskies LB is out to prove otherwise.
Mike Vorel examines the role that career backup Kyler Manu might play for the Huskies this fall. For his part, Manu says that his goals remain the same:
“The expectations never changed,” said the fifth-year senior, who has yet to start a game in his UW career. “My mindset every day was to come in, grind, do what I can do for the team, earn my 20 square feet (in the locker room). I feel like I’ve done that so far throughout my career here.
“This is the last step I need to take, and I think I’m doing a pretty good job of taking it right now.”
The Seattle Times — Washington commits keep recruiting 5-star Jaden McDaniels, but he’s still ‘taking my time’
Percy Allen dives into the Huskies basketball team’s efforts to land the services of the elite high school prospect out of Federal Way, whose preferences toward one university or another remain a total enigma:
McDaniels’ recruitment has been described as mysterious because he’d rather talk about anything other than his college choice. Adding to the ambiguity is the dearth of information coming from his tight-knit circle of advisers that includes his parents and brother Jalen, who played at San Diego State.
“I’m my own person,” said McDaniels, who is one of just seven among the top 50 prospects, according to ESPN, that remains undecided on their college future. “I think differently. People usually commit early and don’t usually wait as long as I am.”
The Athletic — A conversation with Jen Cohen: Washington’s AD talks finances, Adidas, her contract (sort of) and beer and wine at Husky Stadium
Christian Caple has an illuminating conversation with Washington’s athletic director, in which Cohen sheds light on her recent pay raise and contract extension (“I wouldn’t be the person that would ever think it would be cool to announce my contract”), the university’s new apparel deal with Adidas (“We knew that was going to be a great opportunity for us”), and more.
- The softball team continues to deal a hot hand, sweeping Arizona State over the weekend and extending their winning streak to a baker’s dozen.
- UW’s baseball team found themselves on the wrong end of a sweep yesterday, losing to No. 5 Stanford. The Dawgs have dropped 10 of 11 games since March 26.
- Jim Harbaugh received a message straight from the mouth of God.

Kaizen (Ky-Zen) “Japanese philosophy of continuous improvement practices & personal efficiency”. Kaizen Craig Wilcox was born on April 12th, 2019 at 6:01pm. He was 7lbs 15 ounces & 19.5 inches long. He is a very strong boy who loves eating his fingers and playing with his bottom lip! He is a very chill baby, all the nurses loved how calm & peaceful he was while in their care. They all had to come back to see him during their next shift the following day. He is perfect & we are obsessed with him already! Momma was a beast & wouldn’t take a break until he was outta there! Anybody who knows her shouldn’t be surprised! Going back to obsessing over this amazing little boy. Later ✌ #newbornboy
