The Huskies are done with their quasi-bye week of practice, having completed a workout on the East practice field earlier today.
UW coach Steve Sarkisian met with the media afterward, and as you can see, he was already dressed and ready to get on an airplane to go recruit — he said all of the coaches who can legally be on the road (which is all nine fulltime assistants and Sarkisian) will be out recruiting for the next few days.
He said UW’s coaches will be up and down the West Coast — Sarkisian said he’ll focus his efforts on Southern California (and while he didn’t say it, it might not be a surprise to see him turn up at the Narbonne-Serra game to keep an eye on UW commit QB Troy Williams. As Sarkisian said, recruiting this time of year is not just going after new guys but also keeping the committed players in the fold).
Not a ton of news otherwise, but here are a few quick notes:
— Sarkisian said it was a good week of practice from a health standpoint as he said the team got a couple of players back and didn’t lose anybody new (though obviously no specifics anymore on who those players might be who returned);
— He called it a good week of work both on doing some early gameplanning of Stanford but also doing some situational work with some of the younger players. He said today’s practice ended with a late-game situation that was capped by Travis Coons hitting a 42-yard field goal;
— He talked a little about the third receiver spot and said for now it will likely be a “by committee” deal with the likes of DiAndre Campbell, Cody Bruns and Marvin Hall all getting more work in future games;
