Reece moving outside

A lot of you have asked what’s happened to juco WR Marcel Reece, who has just two catches in his last five games.
UW offensive coordinator Tim Lappano said Tuesday that Reece will be tried at the outside receiver positions instead of just in the slot to see if that better suits Reece.
In general, Lappano said Reece “has to play faster” and has to get more separation off the line of scrimmage, something he said was a problem for all of the receivers last week.
“We’re going to ask him this week to step up his game,” Lappano said.
Lappano also lamented the inability of the offense to make plays. “We’ve got to find a way to make some plays and be more consistent,” he said, noting the dropped TD pass by Robert Lewis and other mishaps that prevented the Huskies from moving the ball or scoring much against Arizona State.
Lappano also said that he considers Felix Sweetman the No. 3 QB for this week, apparently another indication that Jake Locker is likely to redshirt. Tyrone Willingham left open the possibility that Locker could still play during his weekly news conference Monday. But Lappano said Johnny DuRocher will get more snaps this week as he prepares to be the backup to Carl Bonnell.
Lappano also said RB Kenny James should be ready to go this week and James appeared to be participating fully in the portion of practice open to the media.
—- On another note, the starting UW offensive line has taken every snap of every game except when LT Ben Ossai was suspended for the opening quarter of the USC game, with Erik Berglund taking his place. But OL coach Mike Denbrock said the line is holding up physically but that he may try to get some of the backups some snaps in coming games, notably Berglund, and guards Morgan Rosborough and Casey Bulyca.
— If you’re wondering why there’s nothing from Willingham today, he has stopped meeting with the media on Tuesday, something he began three weeks ago. He regularly met with us on Tuesday last year and earlier this season. Usually, we at least have a chance to ask him questions on the weekly Pac-10 coaches conference call. All 10 coaches are usually available is for about 10 minutes or so, something that is particularly useful for out-of-town media (if I want to ask a question of Oregon coach Mike Bellotti, I can do it there, for instance). But Willingham didn’t appear on the conference call today, either, sending defensive coordinator Kent Baer in his place. Alas, Baer didn’t get a single question.
— There weren’t many members of the Victory Club this week. The only two were Michael Gottlieb and C.J. Wallace.
