Chris Peterson and the Washington Huskies are ranked in Sports Illustrated’s post-spring top 25.
The Huskies are No. 4 in the Sports Illustrated rankings.
Washington returns several key players headlined by quarterback Jake Browning, running back Myles Gaskin and safety Taylor Rapp.
Sports Illustrated’s Chris Johnson highlighted Gaskin and Washington’s talent at the skill positions as the reasons for the top-five ranking.
“Running back Myles Gaskin’s choice to come back to Seattle for his senior season could end up being one of the most consequential NFL draft decisions of the year, but that was far from the only positive development for the Huskies this spring.”
The Huskies are the favorite to win the Pac-12 this year. Washington lost reining Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year defensive tackle Vita Vea and wide receiver Dante Pettis but the Huskies still possess several impact players on their roster.
