The Washington Huskies secondary is the deepest unit on the team, which means there will be a fierce battle for playing time there. During spring ball, sophomore cornerback Keith Taylor helped his case for more playing time.
ESPN named breakout players from each of the teams in its way-too-early Top 25, and Taylor was chosen for the Huskies, who are ranked No. 6.
“Taylor has measurables and natural talent to be a star for the Huskies. After a solid spring, in which he was second on the team with 5 interceptions, he’s projected to be a starter,” ESPN’s Edward Aschoff said of Taylor.
Taylor could earn himself a starting spot opposite of Byron Murphy, or he might play on the second unit. The sophomore does appears ready for an expanded role in what should arguably be the best secondary in the Pac-12 in 2018.
