Re: Julien Simon
I think the UW just like Will Latu too much to treat Simon like a prima donna. When you’re the clear number #1 then you can peacock but if you’re got a solid guy behind you then the UW has options.
Julien Simon looks near maxed out in size. When you look at Latu it’s clear he hasn’t developed himself in the weight room like he can. I think Latu just projects out as a larger MLB who will keep his speed and agility better at 250lbs.
Latu looks like he’s put in some work this offseason and, at least for me, it helped calm my worries about him lacking motivation and being out of shape.
I’m starting to see more smoke around the Julien Simon recruitment, especially with Gee Scott speaking up again recently, but I refuse to follow the Eklund train of thought that we “moved on” or “had someone else higher on our board.” Copout, IMO.
I cannot find where geescott spoke up again recently? link? what did he say?
