Locker definite No. 1

The most interesting thing to come out of Tyrone Willingham’s press conference today was his declaration that Jake Locker would be the team’s starting quarterback if the Huskies played a game today even if Carl Bonnell were 100 percent healthy.
Willingham said he would make that assessment “based some some things” he has seen out of Locker duing practices, off-season workouts and his high school career.
Willingham characterized the QB job as still wide-open, but this statement, along with the fact that Bonnell isn’t 100 percent healthy, seems to make it a pretty good bet that Locker will be the team’s starter this year.
Bonnell is still recovering from off-season shoulder surgery and Willingham said that while he will be able to participate, he will be limited in some areas.
Willingham also officially announced the naming of Luke Huard as the team’s offensive graduate assistant and Anthony Gabriel, a former linebacker for Willingham at Stanford, as the defensive graduate assistant. Huard will work with the offense (primarily QBs) and Gabriel with the defense (primarily the line).
