Tuesday links — BYU beginning spring practice

Washington’s first opponent next season, BYU, opened spring practice Monday with the spotlight squarely on the quarterback spot, where the Cougars need a replacement for three-year starter Max Hall.
One of the three contenders is Skyline High’s Jake Heaps, who graduated early so he could enroll in time for spring football and compete for the job.
The Deseret News reports that Heaps was 4-8 for 25 yards in his first official practice and that the competition could last well into fall camp.
The Salt Lake Tribune notes that one reason the compeition may linger into the fall is that BYU has only eight healthy offensive linemen this spring so it may not be able to hold enough scrimmages to give everyone a fair look.
ESPN.com also has a good breakdown of the three contenders.
The Huskies will play at BYU Sept. 4 to open the 2010 season and there’s little doubt about who Washington’s QB will be for that game.
