There was no room.

Dylan Morris made room.

Specifically, the sophomore quarterback made the play of the day Saturday — rifling a pass into an impossible window that walk-on wide receiver Nick Juran hauled in on a post route for a 46-yard touchdown in an 11-on-11 scrimmage drill. In UW’s 12th spring practice — and its first open to the public — Morris completed six of 11 passes for 120 yards and a touchdown during live scrimmage sessions. He, junior Indiana transfer Michael Penix Jr. and redshirt freshman Sam Huard received equal reps with the starters.

The 6-foot-3, 214-pound Penix started slow but finished 8-16 for 116 yards and a pair of touchdowns to wide receiver Giles Jackson — a 5-yarder on a crossing route in the back of the end zone and a picturesque 20-yard back-shoulder laser to the right corner.

Huard had more significant struggles Saturday — completing 3 of 11 passes for 54 yards and a deep ball that was easily intercepted by safety Julius Irvin along the left sideline.

(It’s worth noting that, considering some drills didn’t allow tackling and the coaching staff called some plays dead before the ball-carrier was corralled, these numbers are extremely unofficial.)

Juran — a 6-0, 185-pound sophomore — didn’t stop there, taking a Huard swing pass for a 25-yard gain. Redshirt freshman running back Jay’Veon Sunday also caught a similar pass from Penix and exploded upfield for 38 yards, making up for an earlier fumble.
Here is the Juran kid I was about an inch shorter an 10 lbs lighter but probably looked just as goofy as a sophomore in college. lol

Maybe Huard should just transfer to Green River community college. Another massively overrated Washington highschool QB. :roll:

I heard that he impressed in the spring scrimmage.
I know it's the scrimmage, but it has to mean something.

They just don't play anyone. Think about it, we have usually, what, four or five Blue Chip prospects? In the entire State? The competition isn't there, so the really good ones look amazing, because they are head and shoulders better than everyone they play each and every Friday Night.

I see it here. Our local HS has dominated the District for several years. They go to State and get absolutely Boat Raced. Why? Because we aren't as talented, or as big or as fast. That is what happens when the big time in State kids have to compete against big time in State kids from the South East or Texas or Cali.
