In my story today, I briefly touched on USC coach Pete Carroll's admiration for UW quarterback Jake Locker.
Carroll just repeated it in detail in the Pac-10 coaches' weekly conference call. Some of his comments:
"I think this guys is one of the best guys to come in the conference in a long time. ... I've been wowed by his talent. … (He's a_ pocket passer who runs like crazy. ... And he's a battler. I think I'm impressed with his competititveness as much as anything else. ... He's the real deal. When he has a couple of years experience, he'll be phenominal."
