UW's Glenn has inside track on starting job

SEATTLE -- While University of Washington head football coach Steve Sarkisian said Friday that he's keeping an "open mind" when it comes to position battles at the Huskies' upcoming camp, at least one UW assistant has already given the inside track to a starting job.
Defensive coordinator Nick Holt said Friday afternoon that Kamiak High School graduate Justin Glenn is the leading candidate to earn a starting job at the cornerback position opposite returning starter Quinton Richardson.
Holt said that Glenn was so impressive in spring drills that he could go into Monday's first fall practice as the starter.
Glenn, a redshirt freshman, is battling Matt Mosley, Anthony Gobern and Vonzell McDowell for the open starting spot.
“He’s tough. He tackles," Holt said when asked what has made Holt stand out in the coaches' eyes. "He tries to do what the coach wants him to do. You can count on him, for the most part, to do his assignment. He’s there every day, and he doesn’t miss practice.
"You can play with those guys. Are they the fastest guys in the world? No. But they’re there down in and down out, and they want to get better. That’s why he’s around right now.”
