Washington Athletics Dots
- Name, Image, and Likeness legislation is coming and the UW put out their initial plan for it which involves teaming up with the Foster School of Business and many of the major local corporations. In a lot of areas of the country the idea of NIL is a local car dealership paying $50,000 for a commercial to a recruit but with the Seattle tech industry at its fingertips it’s correct for the Huskies to focus on how they can help connect future Dawgs with connections to all of us those companies. Mike Vorel has his thoughts on it here.

- The Seattle Times profiles Samantha Drescher while previewing the Husky Volleyball team’s games against Utah this weekend which start tonight.
- The Seattle Times also writes about the #5 Washington Softball team which is off to a 9-1 start behind the dazzling pitching of Gabbie Plain and a tremendous offense.
- The Huskies get a rematch against Arizona State in Tempe tonight who were last seen blowing out the Dawgs by 30+ points for much of the game. If you buy in that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result...well I may not expect but am certainly hoping. The game starts at 4p PT on FS1.

Time to bounce back.
Washington takes on Arizona State tomorrow, Feb. 25 at 4 p.m. PT on FS1. #TougherTogether
- Christian Caple sat down with UW Offensive Coordinator John Donovan to talk about Washington’s offense which features a lot of coach speak but is still interesting nonetheless.
- One of the biggest risers in the updated 247 rankings was Ohio QB Drew Allar who jumped up from a 3-star to inside the top-100 after his standout junior season. He had this to say about the Huskies while talking about the state of his recruitment: “That was a really cool offer because it’s a Pac 12 school and I don’t know the last time a Pac 12 school like that has offered a guy from Ohio and been really interested. Their coaching staff, they build you for the future no matter if it’s football or after college or life after college.”
- Local Washington target at RB Djouvensky Schlenbaker talked to Dawgman about the state of his recruitment right now after he got to play his first high school game of the season last week.
- Without an NFL Combine this year it puts extra pressure on the Pro Days and most teams had theirs announced yesterday. Washington’s will be on Tuesday, March 30th this year as Levi Onwuzurike, Joe Tryon, Elijah Molden, Keith Taylor, and Josiah Bronson will hope to impress.
