The Top 10 Huskies — Number Three

We’re up to number three and we finally have our third skill position player — it’s possible there could be one more —- with receiver D’Andre Goodwin.
Statistically, few Husky players took the leap last year that Goodwin did, from four catches for 46 yards as a freshman in 2007 to 60 for 692 in 2008 as he became about the only really reliable offensive threat for UW.
With other WRs beginning to mature, the ball could get spread around more next year — next on the receiving list last year were Jermaine Kearse and Devin Aguilar with 20. But no reason Goodwin won’t continue to be one of the team’s leading threats going forward, possibly being able to turn more big plays should the focus of defenses begin to have to broaden over the field. One of his best attributes is his speed, and more balance from UW’s offense might put him in more one-on-one and open-field situations where he could use it more.
Goodwin was essentially the only UW player to rank among the Pac-10 leaders in any offensive category last year (Ronnie Fouch was ninth in passing yards), finishing fourth in receptions and seventh in receiving yards per game (57.7). What he didn’t have much of is touchdowns, just one against Notre Dame, a number that should improve this season.
