  • Christian Caple of The Athletic continues his countdown of the 10 most important Huskies for the upcoming season. The #7 entrant is Richard Newton, which may come as a bit of a surprise for those expecting a committee approach at RB. At the same time, the departure of Salvon Ahmed leaves lots of carries, and Newton’s potential is very high.

  • If you want a good eye roll this morning, ESPN breaks down the Elite 11 QB attendees. Sam Huard doesn’t earn a mention, even though he was invited to the camp and only missed out due to travel restrictions. ESPN’s own rankings have Huard as the #14 player and #1 QB in the class.

  • Washington state officially moved some- but not all- high school sports to a spring season, including football. The change will certainly impact the recruiting timelines for players all the way down to freshman and sophomore classes.
