A few words from Locker

For those who have asked, you should be able to find all the interviews that 710 ESPN Seattle did today on their Jake Heaps theme show here.
The day concluded with an interview with Jake Locker from Oklahoma City, where he is watching the UW softball team compete. He acknowledged in the interview that he is dating outfielder Lauren Greer
Locker said in the interview that he might have considered a few things more prominently during the recruiting process knowing what he knows now than he did at the time, most notably, the makeup of the rest of that year’s class.
“Pay attention to the rest of your because that is the guys that you are going to be on the field with,” Locker said. “That’s one of the things I would have been more involved in. … I think trying to get a nucleus of the best players you can to come into the class is something that is overlooked by recruits sometimes.”
The interview also touched a little bit on the current team.
Asked to assess his progress this spring, Locker said that “I just think that fundamentally, I’m a little more sound.” He noted that “every play, every snap” that he was “constantly being coached. … There wasn’t a play that I ran that I couldn’t improve on and I think that’s great.”
As one example, he noted that the coaches not only graded whether he completed a pass but where he completed it — a pass completed that allowed the receiver to run after the catch was better than one that made the receiver have to turn and stop.
And asked to assess the state of the team, Locker made a fairly revealing statement saying that: “I think is headed in the right direction. Coach (Tyrone) Willingham is a great guy and I have nothing bad to say about him. He stood up for all the right things, he did all the right things. … but for one reason or another, it just didn’t work out with our football team. It just wasn’t the right fit. As a whole, the guys have responded better to the new football staff, a lot better across the board. … You were able to see that in the enthusiasm and the energy and some of the position battles in the spring. It was different than it’s been here in the spring before. So I think we are on the up and it’s only going to get better.”
