08:15 AM ET 12.21 | When Boise State offensive coordinator Robert Prince saw Washington's Shaq Thompson during the spring of his junior year, he saw a bright future. "He looked like a grown man," Prince said. "He looked like an NFL player." That was 18 months ago. Now 6-foot-2, 225 pounds and a true freshman in college, Thompson is one of the stars of a stout Huskies defense going into Saturday's MAACO Bowl Las Vegas showdown with No. 20 Boise State. Thompson earned honorable-mention honors on the All-Pac-12 team. He has started every game and ranks fourth on the team with 66 tackles, tied for first with 8.5 tackles for loss and tied for first with three interceptions.

My man, Troy is on the way to hopefully help the offense. Sarkisian is not doing too shabby up in the Great Northwest.

He seems to be quietly building that team back up. Maybe Jones will do that here.

The Huskies were/are too inconsistent this year. The best player on that team is TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins.
