Husky Football Blog

The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

Thursday notes

A few quick notes this morning:
— As several of you have noted, RealDawg.com is reporting that Devin Aguilar has achieved a qualifying score. Obviously good news for the Huskies. I’ll try to track him down later, as well, to get more on that. As far as I understand it, he won’t enroll until the winter qualifying, but we’ll see if that’s still the case now that he apparently has his score.
— Several of you have asked about Jordan Murchison’s eligibility as it is listed two different ways in official UW publications. The official word today is that he has two year of eligibility left — this year and next year. So getting Murchison back obviously means some added depth for next season, as well, in all probability.
— Some of you have suggested UW play Jake Locker at running back or receiver or somewhere, with Carl Bonnell at QB. I just don’t see it as more than a trick play or two. Realistically, those are your only two playbable QBs on the roster (with Ronnie Fouch on the redshirt track) and there are obvious injury considerations there. But I’ve also rarely seen that work (UW tried that a little bit with Marques Tuiasosopo when Brock Huard was here and it never seemed to go too well). There’s also the fact that Locker has trained to do nothing but be a QB during his time at UW, and that’s what he wants to do. Suddenly forcing another position on him wouldn’t seem to make much sense. There’s also the fact that for as much as some of you may think Locker is struggling, I don’t think the coaches are viewing Locker’s play quite that harshly. I also don’t think it’s as easy as it might seem to say ‘go play running back for a week.’ Maybe for someone who had done it before. But Locker has always been a QB. Again, I could see it for a trick play or two, but for more than that, no.
