Breakout Huskies

Much of the aniticipation of the first game of any season is wondering which new players — or which players haven’t done much before — will suddenly burst onto the scene.
Here’s my look at five potential breakout players for the Huskies this season (an idea admittedly stolen from a reader):
FS Jason Wells — His signing last winter seemed to barely raise a ripple of excitement. He hadn’t been recruited by any D-I schools out of high school, then spent only a year at a JC in southern California. But he has been a bright spot in the eyes of the coaches ever since arriving and has held down the starting FS spot almost since day one last spring. He’s earned a reputation as a big hitter in practice and as a commanding leader in the defensive huddle. Now it’s time to make that translate on gameday.
PK Michael Braunstein — He’s made just 3-7 field goals in his career, but the starting job is now unquestionably his and Tyrone Willingham says he has been solid throughout camp, adjusting well to the new one-inch tee. Willingham said he made a 51-yarder in practice the other day.
WR Corey Williams — He’s done some big things before (namely, the catch to win the 2003 Apple Cup) but has been hampered by injuries the past two years. But I think of all the returning receivers, if there is one destined to make a huge leap in production and become a big-time playmaker, it’s Williams.
LB Dan Howell — I wrote a little profile of Howell this week explaining his rise from a backup who has made just three career tackles to a starter. One thing that really rubs off is his enthusiasm for the game — something common among a number of the players new to the lineup and something that I think bodes well for the season. Howell really seems to care.
DE Daniel Te’o-Nesheim — We’ve all written a lot about how the defensive coaches love his motor. Time, finally, to see it in action.
