Baggett pleased with receivers

Monday’s practice marked the debut for Charlie Baggett as UW’s receivers coach.
And while he and UW coach Tyrone Willingham have a well-chronicled history together, it was also the first the two have ever coached on the same staff.
“Just to see him sitting there at the head of the table was kind of fun for me,” Baggett said.
Baggett has been at UW about six weeks and while he’s gotten to know his players, Monday was the first time he got to see them in action.
Baggett said he didn’t want to say he was surprised, which implies he didn’t think much of them going on, “but I was excited,” he said. “I think we’ve got a chance, especially when you have quarterbacks who can throw the ball like we do.”
Interestingly, Baggett was impressed by the size of Marcel Reece on a day when many observers were more impressed that Reece has lost about 30 pounds from where he was when he entered camp a year ago. Despite that weight loss, Reece is still a big receiver at a listed 6-3, 240 pounds.
“I was telling him he has to learn to use that to his advantage,” Baggett said.
Baggett said a good comparison in terms of style for Reece is Cris Carter, whom Baggett coached with the Minnesota Vikings. “He wasn’t super fast, but he was big and very technically sound,” Baggett said.
Baggett, who has been in the NFL the past decade, also said he was surprised by the size of UW’s offensive line — all of UW’s starters weigh 300 pounds or more.
“I told Ty that this looks like an NFL-sized line, and they do,” he said. “That’s impressive.”
NOTES
— The Huskies practiced Tuesday without pads in Husky Stadium. The first 25 minutes were open to the media and there was nothing apparent new of note. Eric Berglund again appeared to be the only player of note ailing, recovering from a hamstring injury. The Huskies are expected to get into full pads for the first time Thursday (Wednesday is an off day).
Scott White and C.J. Wallace were on the field before practice officially began, talking good-naturedly with Husky defensive coordinator Kent Baer.
