Happy Tuesday, here’s your dots!
First off, Puka really was coming home:
And his message to UW fans just prior:
In all seriousness, I do really hope he and his family are doing okay and he has a good future there.
- Christian Caple looks forward to spring camp and what he’ll be looking out for.
- Mike Vorel has some of Puka’s departing words here from his interview on KJR.
- I know nothing about tennis, but a transfer sophomore from France is lighting it up for Washington’s men’s team.
- “I‘ll watch tape on myself during my junior year and I cringe” — A really fun and insightful interview with Elijah Molden at The Draft Network.
More interviews with Levi Onwuzurike incoming:
Talked to Levi Onwuzurike on the @picksixpod about what makes him one of the best defensive linemen in this draft class, his Senior Bowl week and going up against Quinn Meinerz, and Huskies teammates/future NFL players Elijah Molden and Joe Tryon. https://t.co/oEfUsvw7vv— ryan wilson (@ryanwilsonCBS) March 8, 2021
FYI, NFL Network is planning on broadcasting UW's Pro Day as part of their "Path to the Draft Pro Day Special" series on March 30. Huskies are one of 19 programs that will be featured this spring.— Mike Vorel (@mikevorel) March 9, 2021
More regarding the Puka sitch:
On 950 AM KJR, Puka Nacua says he entered the transfer issues because there were "some family issues" and "I know I needed to be there."— Mike Vorel (@mikevorel) March 8, 2021
Puka Nacua confirms he missed the Stanford game because he tested positive for COVID-19. That had been widely speculated.— Mike Vorel (@mikevorel) March 8, 2021
This makes it sting slightly less (or more? I can’t tell):
Puka Nacua was asked on 950 AM KJR what he'd say to wide receiver recruits that are considering UW. "I would definitely say, 'Don't hesitate.'"— Mike Vorel (@mikevorel) March 8, 2021
For anyone who had questions about Puka Nacua transferring out, fair to say he made it clear on KJR that it wasn't one he wanted to make, but one he felt he had to make.— Lars Hanson (@LarsHanson) March 8, 2021
Nacua said he's definitely got to get back up to Seattle at some point
Do good things, don’t do bad things, and bow down to Washington.
