Boyles and Kearse Q&A
April 16, 2009
The Husky receiving corps has potential to be one of the deepest and most talented positions on the squad. The group is comprised of mostly underclassmen that are still learning the ropes and hoping to breakout. Two such players are freshman Anthony Boyles and sophomore-to-be Jermaine Kearse.
Kearse played in all 12 games in 2008 and led the team in receiving touchdowns and was second in receiving yards with 309. Kearse is having an impressive spring, already showing that he is picking up the new offense and building rapport with Husky quarterback Jake Locker on long passing plays and short timing routes.
Boyles came to Washington as a highly-touted recruit out of Southern California in January 2008. After redshirting the 2009 season, Boyles entered the spring looking to learn the new offense and work his way up the depth chart. At 6-foot-3, Boyles is one of the Huskies tallest receivers and could be a major weapon in Coach Sarkisian offense over his career.
