The Washington Huskies found themselves a special player in Myles Gaskin after he had a terrific true freshman season. It looks like he is garnering all kinds of attention from around the conference and a PAC-12 coach praised him.
The coach, who remained anonymous, talked about how special of a player Gaskin has already proven he can be. He told ESPN’s KC Joyner that he has “unbelievable feet” and should make an impact for the Huskies this year.
“He’s just great in short areas and quick as a frickin’ hiccup,” he said. “His ability to make people miss is special. I’m just thinking of some plays against him and I’m like, ‘How in the heck did he get out of that?’ He’s so fast and decisive and powerful.”
During the 2015 season, Myles Gaskin was a big reason for Washington getting back to a bowl for a sixth straight season. He rushed for 1,302 yards, tops among true freshman running backs, and 14 touchdowns.
He is another year older and it is certainly believable that he could have another big year for the Huskies. He could help them compete in the PAC-12 North this year.
The Huskies open the season on Sept. 3 when they host the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.
