Personnel updates

Had a chance to talk with a few people around the football program today and got a few updates, so here goes:
—- Carl Bonnell won’t be 100 percent when spring practice begins April 9 but should be in uniform and able to participate in a lot of drills, though possibly no scrimmaging. If he can’t scrimmage, that obviously leaves the snaps to be taken by Jake Locker, incoming high-schooler Ronnie Fouch and new walk-on Chandler Clemons.
— The Huskies don’t appear to have any other major injury questions heading into spring. Word is that all other players should be ready to go for the beginning of spring practice. That includes Jordan White-Frisbee, who is apparently ready to again hit the field after battling a troublesome foot injury the last two years.
— Sounds as if WR Marcel Reece has done a good job of staying in shape during the off-season. He’s officially listed at 240 pounds but may be a little under that. He is said to have reported at 269 pounds last summer when he arrived from junior college, one of the main reasons his progress was stunted last season.
— Washington will have just two tailbacks on the roster for the spring — Louis Rankin and J.R. Hasty. The Huskies may experiment at times using Johnie Kirton in short-yardage situations, but he remains primarily a tight end.
— Walt Winter was listed on one roster released recently as a defensive end, his old position. But he remains a tight end, the position he was moved to last season. There aren’t expected to be any significant position changes as spring begins, though some could always emerge as drills progress.
