Looking ahead

A few of you asked for an overview of UW’s prospects for next season.
So first, here is a story I wrote for the paper today that breaks down each position.
And here is a tracking of how the roster numbers shape up by position (scholarship players only) with the season ending and seniors moving on. Number in brackets is number of players on current roster. And year has been changed to reflect their class for the 2007 season.
QUARTERBACK (2)
Carl Bonnell, Sr.
Jake Locker, RFr.
High school commit — Ronnie Fouch
Comment: Depth suddenly a problem here.
TAILBACK (3)
Louis Rankin, Sr..
Michael Houston, So.
J.R.Hasty, So.
High school commits —- Brandon Yakaboski, Nate Williams
Comment: Houston is still officially on the roster and in school so we’ll include him for now. UW may sign another TB or two, as well.
FULLBACK (2)
Luke Kravitz, Jr.
Paul Homer, So.
Comment: Another FB or two is needed.
WIDE RECEIVER (6)
Quintin Daniels, Sr.
Marcel Reece, Sr.
Corey Williams, Sr.
Anthony Russo, Sr.
Cody Ellis, Sr.
D’Andre Goodwin, RFr.
High school commits — Alvin Logan
Comment: Definitely a place where the Huskies have to start signing some players for the long-term. For next year, should be a strength.
TIGHT END (5)
Robert Lewis, Sr.
Johnie Kirton, Jr..
Michael Gottlieb, Jr.
Walter Winter, Jr.
Tim Williams, So.
High school commit — Chris Izbicki.
Comment: Maybe the best long-term position on the team considering the commitment of Izbicki.
OFFENSIVE LINEMEN (11)
Chad Macklin, Sr.
Juan Garcia, Sr.
Aaron Mason, Jr.
Ryan Bush, Jr.
Jordan White-Frisbee, Jr.
Casey Bulyca, Jr.
Ben Ossai, So.
Morgan Rosborough, So.
Ryan Tolar, RFr.
Cody Habben, RFr.
Matt Sedillo, RFr.
High school commits — Scott Shugert and Emeka Iweka.
Comment: The depth here is finally starting to return but the Huskies will try to sign another five or so for this year’s class (including the two who are already in). Erik Berglund, who could emerge as a key player next year, is still officially listed as a walk-on..
DEFENSIVE LINEMEN (12)
Greyson Gunheim, Sr.
Caesar Rayford, Sr.
Wilson Afoa, Sr.
Jordan Reffett, Sr.
Erick Lobos, Sr.
Anthony Atkins, Jr.
Jovon O’Connor, Jr.
Darrion Jones, So.
Daniel Te’o-Neshiem, So.
Derek Kosub, RFr.
Cameron Elisara, RFr.
De’Shon Matthews, RFr.
Comment: This could be one of UW’s best positions for 2007.
LINEBACKERS (7)
Dan Howell, Sr.
Kyle Trew, Sr.
Trenton Tuiasosopo, Jr.
Chris Stevens, Jr.
E.J. Savannah, So.
Donald Butler, So.
Matt Houston, RFr.
High school commit — Quinton Richardson.
Comment: Despite loss of White and Bomar, might not be much of a dropoff here in 2007.
SECONDARY (6)
Roy Lewis, Sr.
Darin Harris, Jr.
Jordan Murchison, Jr.
Jason Wells, Jr.
Mesphin Forrester, Jr.
Matt Mosley, RFr.
High school commit — Vonzell McDowell (cornerback).
Comment: This might have been the most hard-hit position with the loss of Goldson, Fountaine and Hemphill. UW definitely needs some cornerbacks with Lewis the only one on the roster who could really be called experienced there. Figure some JC help coming here.
PUNTER (0)
KICKER (1)
)
Ryan Perkins, So
High school commit — Nick Folk.
Comment: UW will go after a punter and has Folk in line to replace Braunstein.
LONG SNAPPER (1)
Danny Morovick, So.
Comment: Morovick figures to be the only scholarship specialist at this spot for a while.
TOTAL SCHOLARSHIP PLAYERS (56)
Scholarship players by class:
Seniors: 18
Juniors: 16
Sophomores: 12
Redshirt freshmen: 10
