Here’s video (above) of junior receiver Jaydon Mickens talking about the start of Washington’s football camp, which begins Monday.
He also touched on the competition at quarterback, the Huskies’ Legion of Zoom and the possibility of playing defensive back this season.
“We had some key losses in the defensive back position,” Mickens said. “If I can contribute … I will.”
Mickens hopes to get a chance to participate in defensive drills on Wednesday.
Mickens said the official LOZ members include: Mickens, John Ross and Marvin Hall.
Mickens said he’s never met anyone from the Seahawks’ Legion of Boom and wants to go ‘one-on-one’ against Seattle’s Richard Sherman.
When asked who’s been a breakout player, Mickens said freshman cornerback Jermaine Kelly.
“From his freshman year, biting on everything, slipping and falling to can’t tackle to coming back in the spring and just doing it,” Mickens said. “Breaking up passes. There was some days where I was like, I got to focus on Jermaine and see what his tendencies are. He’s really got confidence. His swagger is phenomenal. He’s going to be a breakout player this year. No doubt.”
