Tuesday afternoon notes — Sun comes out at Husky Stadium

Sunglasses haven’t been necessary often at UW this spring, but they are today as weather more in keeping with the season has finally greeted the Huskies — that’s the team going through some early drills to the right.

Senio Kelemete was among those watching from the sidelines, out with the torn plantar fascia. So that had the No. 1 line looking this way, from right to left, as the team went through its early play run-through period — Ben Riva, Colin Porter, Drew Schaefer, Colin Tanigawa and Erik Kohler.

Keith Price was the first QB to operate the No. 1 offense, but Nick Montana then came on and the two appeared to split reps. Chris Polk was the tailback and Jermaine Kearse and Devin Aguilar the top WRs with Kevin Smith and James Johnson appearing to rotate at the third spot, Cody Bruns also working in at times. Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Michael Hartvigson were the primary tight ends.

Defensively, the line was the same — Everrette Thompson and Hau’oli Jamora at end with Alameda Ta’amu and Sione Potoa’e at tackle, with Josh Shirley also rotating in situationally at end.

Cort Dennison was the MLB and Garret Gilliland the WLB. John Timu and Princeton Fuimaono (in red, but wearing full pads) split time at SLB.

In the secondary, Desmond Trufant and Quinton Richardson were the CBs (with backups Greg Ducre and Anthony Gobern rotating in for a few plays). Sean Parker was the SS, and was not in red. Nate Fellner was at FS, but Justin Glenn — appearing to get more and more time — also rotated in at that spot.

Among the former players on hand are Nate Williams and Justin Robbins.

And in other news. …

Jake Locker is reported to be visiting the Patriots today and tomorrow.

— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller has the report on Arizona State’s new uniforms.

— Colorado has named Tyler Hansen its starting QB for next year.

— The Oregonian has some afternoon news and notes around the Pac-10 (and likely no UW news simply because Washington hasn’t done anything since Saturday).

More notes and quotes after practice.
