Washington spring practice, Day 9: Big-play receivers, a big hit and some injuries
Rome Odunze continues to dominate practice, Ralen Goforth can still knock helmets off, and the Huskies are nursing some bumps and bruises.
SEATTLE — We’ll see how long it takes for the Washington Huskies to hold a football practice outdoors. It rained all morning again, so again the Huskies headed into the Dempsey Indoor for Monday’s practice.
This was a fully-open-to-media session — with full pads and some tackling — so I’ve got plenty of observations and thoughts …
Were I to select a halfway-through-spring MVP, it would undoubtedly be junior receiver Rome Odunze. There doesn’t appear to be anybody on Washington’s defense who can consistently cover him one-on-one, though I’m not sure how many cornerbacks there are in all of college football who could make that claim. On Monday, Odunze beat Jabbar Muhammad deep for another long touchdown pass from Michael Penix Jr. during an 11-on-11 period, shaking off the junior cornerback’s tackle attempt as he stepped across the goal line for about a 50-yard score.
