The Huskies figure to start Jake Locker at quarterback with Carl Bonnell in reserve and an eye toward redshirting Ronnie Fouch. However, four arms work better than three in camp -- especially during split practice days -- so the Huskies have welcomed into that role Taylor Bean, a walk-on from Vancouver (Skyline).
Bean is 6-foot-1, 202 pounds and made an early impression on offensive coordinator Tim Lappano.
"I didn't know much about him," Lappano said as camp opened. "He's a smart kid. In the meeting (Saturday) night he surprised me. I kind of had a little respect for the program that he came out of because he was pretty coached up. He knew some stuff. I was worred that he'd get in there and be totally lost, and he wasn't at all. I was pretty jazzed up about that."
I'll have a story on Bean and more on the whole QB situation later in the week.
