It’s a little quiet on the UW news front with the Huskies on a bye week. But they do have media availability after this morning’s practice, with defensive players and assistant coaches, so we’ll pass along the pertinent notes, quotes and video from that session. And there are still a few notes to pass along as Tuesday turns into Wednesday.
--- The Huskies became the first team to offer a scholarship to 2018 quarterback prospect Jacob Sirmon, who is currently a sophomore at Bothell High School. Sirmon is the nephew of former Huskies linebackers coach Peter Sirmon, who currently coaches at USC. And Jacob Sirmon’s father, David, played linebacker at Montana. Scout.com currently ranks Sirmon as a 4-star prospect.
--- Sounds like California coach Sonny Dykes isn’t too happy about a hit Huskies linebacker Azeem Victor laid on Cal receiver Kenny Lawler during Saturday’s game. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Dykes submitted a report to the Pac-12 about a play in the fourth quarter in which Lawler’s helmet came off, and Victor’s elbow appeared to strike Lawler’s head as Victor dove in at the end of the play. No penalty was called, but Lawler reportedly sustained a cut on his chin that required stitches. Dykes told the Chronicle that he spoke with the league office, and he was “satisfied with what they had to say.”
