- NFL 7-round mock drafts are complete crap shoots right now given everything involved but here’s one that has 3 Huskies selected in the 3rd round and 4 total.
- Dane Brugler has Elijah Molden his 2nd ranked senior corner in the draft class but outside his top-ten overall with a loaded junior year.
- The NCAA announced both that they will try to have championships for fall sports in the spring and that players will not lose a year of eligibility no matter what happens this fall/spring. I looked at the impact of the latter decision on UW here.
- Washington DB target Vincent Nunley is planning on committing a week from Thursday and the Dawgs are in great shape.
Committing September 3rd...— Vince Nunley (@NunleyVince) August 22, 2020
- Is it too early to be reading interviews with 2023 prospects about their interest in Washington? Probably, but what else are you going to do right now?
- If Dante Pettis is going to have a resurgent 3rd year in the NFL he’s certainly helped by the wasteland that is the 49ers WR depth chart:
Current 49ers WR injuries:— Field Yates (@FieldYates) August 23, 2020
▫️Deebo Samuel (Jones fracture - likely to miss games)
▫️Jalen Hurd (ACL, on IR)
▫️Richie James (wrist, will start year on NFI)
▫️First round pick Brandon Aiyuk left practice today with an apparent hamstring issue
Sean McVay says he's hopeful safety Taylor Rapp (Knee) will be able to return to action within a week, and that he'll be ready for the opener against the Cowboys on Sept. 13th.— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) August 23, 2020
- Unfortunately, the Huskies are on the ropes for remaining players in the NBA bubble after both Matisse Thybulle’s 76ers and Justin Holiday’s Pacers were swept in the 1st round. The last 2 men standing are Orlando’s Markelle Fultz and Terrence Ross who are on the verge of getting eliminated themselves.
- The Ringer in their updated NBA mock draft has Jaden McDaniels and Isaiah Stewart going late in the 1st round to two of the better teams in the NBA in Milwaukee and Boston.
- Recruiting took a semi-expected hit when PG target Nolan Hickman who moved out of state last month committed to Kentucky. Hickman had never reported his Kentucky offer and was thought to be leaning towards Kansas before the announcement.
