It’s May and there’s still Washington football news and notes. Dots has you covered:
- Ahead of the Athletic Department - Board of Regents meeting this Wednesday, Christian Caple reviews the department finances and specifically how they will recover post-pandemic. A key part of that initiative is filling the stadium.
- One of UW’s top recruiting targets, local QB Gabarri Johnson, has committed to Missouri. Where does Washington go from here?
- Texas State transfer safety Zion Childress is down to Washington, TCU, and Kentucky. The ballhawking safety will have four years to play three wherever he ends up.
- A couple of UW legacies, Sam Huard and Carson Bruener, are hosting a youth football camp in June. Exact figures are still up in the air, but it appears they will get paid potentially in the high five or low six figure range.
