Football-basketball merging

This is the time of year when there is quite a bit of overlap in college football and basketball and I’m somewhat caught in it today as I’m attending the Pac-10 Basketball Media Day in Los Angeles. That means I won’t be able to be quite as attentive to the football blog today as normal, though I’ll make sure that anything big that happens gets passed along here.
Considering that, there couldn’t have been a more appropriate story than the one that ran today in the Oregonian on Ducks receiver Jordan Kent. He’s t he son of Oregon basketball coach Ernie Kent and may still be best known as a basketball player.
But this is his second year playing football, and as this story indicates, his NFL stock is soaring. So much so that he may not play basketball this year so he can concentrate on getting ready for the NFL Draft in April.
I know UW coaches are impressed with him. Defensive coordinator Kent Baer said he saw little difference in the physical abilities of Kent and Jaison Williams, Oregon’s other receiver who has 53 catches this year (Kent has 21).
