Week 1: UW @ Hawaii Depth Chart

Freshman Budda Baker will start against Hawaii this weekend in what will be his Husky debut.

Freshman Budda Baker will start against Hawaii this weekend in what will be his Husky debut.

Key Thoughts:

  • Dwayne Washington has separated himself from the “core of four” at the running back position. Coach Pete has acknowledged Washington’s speed, consistency, and explosiveness as the reasons for giving him the first carries of the game.
  • Marvin Hall is listed as the starting WR #1 ahead of Kasen Williams. Now don’t freak out, this is simply due to Kasen Williams working his way back from his injury. Williams has not been 100% throughout fall camp and therefore will not start and have a play count against Hawaii as he eases back into action.
  • Colin Tanigawa gets the nod at center ahead of the incumbent, Mike Criste. Tanigawa spent the final two weeks of fall camp playing center with the number one offense.
  • Corey Littleton is not listed on this two-deep roster. Some feared the worst (suspension/dismissal); however, he is simply nursing some nagging injuries he has had throughout fall camp. Expect to see Littleton work his way back into the regular rotation at “buck end” in the weeks to come.
  • Keishawn Bierria is listed as a co-starter with Travis Feeney at one of the outside linebacker positions. Bierria has had a very strong fall camp; however, this is probably a precaution due to Feeney’s absence during fall camp due to injuries. If Feeney is 100% when the team gets to Hawaii, expect him to start. Otherwise, Bierria will start in what is sure to be his Husky debut.
  • Budda Baker has won the starting Free Safety job which has pushed Brandon Beaver over to Strong Safety. Baker has been remarkable throughout fall camp on defense and specials teams. Baker is also likely to get his chance at returning kicks as well.
