Football Dots

  • In an unfortunate turn of events, DT Danny Shelton is back on an NFL roster but it came at the expense of another former Husky who will hopefully be on another team soon.
  • Meanwhile a different former Husky DT will have the keys handed to him this year with the release of his star teammate at the same position.
  • Dawgman continues their “Opposing View” series with freshman DT Sama Pa’ama as scouted by players/coaches who competed against him in high school
  • They also have an interview with Ferndale OL Geirean Hatchett who is one of the Husky’s top recruiting priorities and who is planning on making a decision before his senior season.
  • Strength coach Tim Socha has had a lot of success attributed to him for his efforts in developing the physical tools of the UW football teams and he’s been rewarded

Basketball Dots

  • The Huskies had their waiver approved to take an international trip after 3 years rather than 4 and will be headed to Italy in August to play 4 Serie A teams in Rome and Florence. It will be the first chance to see 5-star Isaiah Stewart in a Husky uniform (provided the games are streamed which they might not be).
  • The Pac-12 made a series of rule changes yesterday which included the elimination of the penalty year for players who transfer between Pac-12 schools (they have the same rules as normal transfers now) and mandatory non-conference scheduling floors for basketball teams to ensure one team can’t tank the conferences NET ranking.
