The quarterback picture for the Huskies is still shrouded in mystery, at least for another day.
Washington coach Steve Sarkisian won’t name a starting quarterback for Saturday’s game at Oregon State until before kickoff, he said in a radio interview Friday.
The Huskies options are senior Keith Price and redshirt freshman Cyler Miles. Price hasn’t missed a start in two years for Washington, but a banged-up shoulder on his right (throwing) arm suffered in a loss last week against UCLA prevented him from even practicing until Thursday morning. Miles took his place against the Bruins and the No. 1 snaps in his place in practice earlier this week.
Sarkisian said that Price was “vastly improved” after practice Thursday.
“I was encouraged that he was able to go out and throw the ball the way he did. (He was) much improved from where he couldn’t even basically put a shirt on Saturday,” he said.
