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. lolBy Mike Vorel

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.
