- Mike Vorel asks whether the defense is improved enough to help support those kind of lofty goals.
- He also has notes and observations from the beginning of the last week of spring practices.
- Christian Caple’s practice recap includes a focus on JUCO CB Thaddeus Dixon who had a pair of interceptions and has played his way into the likely 2-deep.
- Dawgman had their practice recap both in article and in podcast format.
- Former 5-star Edge Sav’ell Smalls announced last night that he will be entering the transfer portal. Smalls was the highest ranked signee for the Huskies in the Chris Petersen era at the time he signed but he was never able to break through as a starter.
