Weighty D-line, and more

Lots going on with the Spring Game just a day away.
First, I’ll post our story today about Daniel Te’o-Nesheim and Cameron Elisara each planning to throw weights tonight in the track meet against Washington State, then play in the spring game tomorrow. They will also take part in football practice this afternoon before heading to the meet.
Somebody asked if Johnie Kirton hadn’t also been throwing weights. I don’t think so. He’s not on the list of competitors for the track team that was handed to me and nobody told me he was.
The one other football player who did take part in track earlier in the season was LB Chris Stevens, who ran a 11.02 100 meters, second-best on the team. But Stevens is not doing track while spring football is going on.
I also used the story as a way to talk about the defensive line as a whole and how it could be the strength of the entire team this season. Certainly, it has often gotten the better of the offense in spring practice so far.
RECRUITING UPDATE: The Huskies have been busy on the recruiting trail the last few days.
UW got a commitment from wide receiver Vince Taylor of Eastside Catholic on Thursday. However, Taylor told Scout.com that he’s likely to be a safety for UW.
RealDawg.com also reported that UW has gotten a commitment from offensive guard Craig Noble of Taft High in Woodland Hills, Calif. That’s a noted football factory located in the San Fernando Valley that has pumped out a number of players during the years. Maybe one of its more interesting alums who ended up at UW is receiver Andre DeSaussure, who played at UW from 1995-98.
The commitments give UW five which I think is the earliest the Huskies have ever had this many.
As this chart shows, UW didn’t get its fifth commitment a year ago until July.
HEINRICH A SOPH?: Someone with a better knowledge of Husky football than me said I was wrong yesterday in writing that Don Heinrich started as a freshman, that he played with the frosh team before becoming UW’s QB in 1948 before taking over the varsity in 1949.
Some quick research shows the reader to be correct that Heinrich was a sophomore in 1949, a junior in 1950, sat out 1951 with an injury, and then a senior in 1952.
For now, I’ll refrain on saying that Locker could definitely become the first Husky QB to ever start the first college game in which he plays, but it’s certainly looking that way.
