Spring football practice at Washington begins on Tuesday, though it's still winter. Coach Chris Petersen will hold a press conference today at 1:30 p.m. to preview the spring session. We'll report back with all the pertinent information. For now, links.
--- UW received a verbal commitment from O'Dea running back Myles Gaskin yesterday.

Never miss a local story.
