Reece “overwhelmed”

Might be time to slow down the Marcel Reece for Heisman buzz.
While Reece seems to have impressed everyone with his combination of size and speed during fall camp, offensive coordinator Tim Lappano said before practice today that the junior-college transfer wide receiver has been “overwhelmed” as of late with the playbook.
“He’s out there thinking,” Lappano said. “He’s not playing as fast as he needs to play.”
Lappano also said the big man, currently trying to trim off some of his 240 pounds, needs to run better routes, specifically get out his breaks a little quicker.
That said, Reece is definitely in the wide receiver rotation.
There’s some depth at the position. Lappano said the Huskies are considering featuring more three- and four- wide-receiver sets this fall.
The top two guys at the position right now, according to Lappano, are Corey Williams and Anthony Russo. Also in the mix are Reece, Cody Ellis, Sonny Shackelford and Alex Mercier.
Quintin Daniels is another wide receiver, but appears to have broken some bones in his right hand. Coach Tyrone Willingham only said it was a non-football related injury. It’s unclear how serious the injury is or how long he’ll be at less than 100 percent. He was practicing today.
And remember that Marlon Wood is back, and appears fully healed from a broken left leg he suffered last year after a 92-yard opening-kickoff return against USC. Lappano said Wood hasn’t dropped a ball yet this camp.
Also: Freshman Jake Merrill, a safety from Gig Harbor, has quit the team for personal reasons. Coach Tyrone Willingham said it’s permanent. There are some indications that it’s a health issue, but Willingham also said today that Merrill is not on scholarship anymore.
