Huskies morning links: Reintroducing Kendyl Taylor, UW’s forgotten wide receiver

The Huskies will scrimmage for the first time today, but it will be closed to the media and public. We’ll be back out there for Tuesday afternoon’s practice, with the usual updates afterward. In the meantime, I’m wrapping up some things for our college football special section that comes out at the end of the month; that’s always a fun project, and I’ll hope you check it out then.

For today’s paper, I wrote about Kendyl Taylor, who redshirted as a sophomore last year and has become a bit of a forgotten man among the UW receiving corps. He seems to have a good perspective on the situation.

“After redshirting last year, I’m starting from the bottom,” he said. “With the new coaching staff, everyone’s on a level playing field, and I really think this new offense suits me well. …

“I’m on the bottom of the list trying to work my way up. I have nothing to lose and everything to gain.”

“He’s done a good job,” UW receivers coach Brent Pease said. “I think there’s been a big improvement from summer to now with him. He’s a smart kid and he’s got some abilities. He competes and he’s raised the level of competition.”
