Fogerson moving back to running back

Rumors that Johri Fogerson might be moving back to running back from safety have been confirmed today, giving the Huskies one more body at tailback.
New UW coach Steve Sarkisian will discuss the move in more detail at a press conference tomorrow, but the position change has been officially confirmed today.
UW was seeking more depth at the tailback spot after losing four scholarship tailbacks since the beginning of spring ball — Terrance Dailey, David Freeman and Brandon Johnson for academic reasons and Brandon Yakaboski to a setback in his recovery from a knee injury.
Fogerson’s move back to tailback will give UW five taiilbacks — Chris Polk, Willie Griffin, Demitrius Bronson and Curtis Shaw.
UW coaches had initially hesitated to move Fogerson — who was initially an RB at UW after rushing for 2,545 yards as a senior at O’Dea — to tailback, saying they had to think about how it would impact the safety position. Fogerson was listed as a co-starter at free safety at the end of the spring along with Greg Walker.
But moving Fogerson may indicate they feel more comfortable in the depth at that position with JC transfer David Batts getting into school and Jason Wells saying recently he thinks he’ll be ready to go for the start of camp.
Fogerson’s younger brother, Zach, has committed to sign with UW as part of the Class of 2010, meaning the possibility of a Fogerson-Fogerson backfield in the future is again alive.
