The Washington Huskies are among the nation’s best college football programs. They’re also pretty sharp.
Nine Huskies were named to the Pac-12 All-Academic Teams, which the conference released on Thursday. Quarterback Jake Browning, a Business major and the most notable of the Huskies, made the conference’s second team with a 3.37 GPA. He was bested by Oregon’s Justin Herbert, who posted an eye-popping 4.08 GPA while majoring in Biology.
Wide receiver John Gardner (3.54, Mathematics), linebackers Tevis Bartlett (3.65, Education, Community and Organizations) and Ben Burr-Kiven (3.58, Comparative Literature, Cinema and Media Studies), defensive back Taylor Rapp (3.66, Business) and kicker Van Soderberg (3.91, Pre-Engineering) each made the conference’s first team. Offensive lineman Luke Wattenberg (3.36, Pre-Engineering), and defensive linemen Greg Gaines (3.25, Extended Pre-Major) and Levi Onwuzurike (3.36, Pre-Arts and Sciences) joined Browning on the second team.
Bartlett, Burr-Kiven and Gaines received All-Academic honors for the second time in their careers.
Washington’s honorable mentions included A.J. Carty, Sean Constantine, Will Dissly, Coleman Shelton, Nick Harris, Drew Sample, Vita Vea and Tristan Vizcaino.
