JWF making his move

The Huskies are about to hit the field for their fourth practice of the spring, all of them so far in either no pads or shells (helmets and shoulder pads only).
That means it’s still too early to make any real declarations about too much (and, thankfully for the Huskies, no real injuries yet, either).
But one thing the coaches have seen that they’ve liked is mammoth guard Jordan White-Frisbee running around.
“Friz is coming on good,” said offensive coordinator Tim Lappano. “Physically, Friz is there. Physically, he does a lot of good things. He’s a powerful guy and a good athlete. Mentally, he’s a little behind in the system right now, but I like the direction he’s going.”
If JWF’s problems are really all mental at the moment, the Huskies might have something.
He hasn’t been able to play much the last two years due to constant troubles with his right foot. But he said today he thinks those issues are behind him.
“I feel good,” he said. “I haven’t felt this way since before I started football.”
Now back, JWF is competing for time at guard, listed No. 2 on the left side behind Morgan Rosborough.
He’s also listed as weighing 320 pounds in the spring media guide but says he weighs about 20 pounds more than that.
But he professes to be in good shape having been on a rehab plan all winter after having yet another surgery on the foot late last season.
“I’m an expert now (on rehab),” he said with a laugh.
He has switched from defense to offense, back to defense, and now on offense for good.
“Wherever I play is fine as long as I play,” said White-Frisbee, listed as a senior but with two yeasr of eligibility remaining.
The hardest part of offense vs. defense, he said, is learning how not to hold.
“I have a hard time with not having my weight back and having forward motion all the time,” he said.
The Huskies are expected to get into full pads for the first time on Saturday, when they are also likely to do some scrimmaging.
