Bonnell was the starting QB for the Huskies for two games in 2004 under Keith Gilbertson, with his last start on October 9, 2004 against
Per the blog of Molly Yanity, Seattle Post Intelligencer, Willingham said at the press conference today that true freshman Jake Locker will get more snaps in practice this week, but he would have to “sit down and consider” what would be best for the team in deciding whether to burn Locker’s redshirt year. Husky fans definitely want Locker to start.
Per Duckfighter Illustrated, a Washington Husky fan site, “The frail Bonnell got some time Saturday and looks to be unprepared for the rigors of playing behind our offensive line against a team like Cal….Playing at Qual-Commie Stadium in Berkeley is a daunting task but nobody expects UW to win anyway. It represents a chance to feel the fire and learn the hard lessons that he is going to have to learn anyway. This year is better than next year.

Unless the prognosis on Stanback’s foot turns out to be more optimistic than replays suggest it’ll be, the coach’s only-in-a-pinch doctrine on redshirts might be tested. Prepare to play Jake Locker, I say. Go with Bonnell, but have a Plan B in place before kickoff.”
