Freshman Getting A LEAP Ahead!
With the start of the summer freshman LEAP program on Monday, 27 of the newest Husky student-athletes have gotten a head start on their first year of the college experience. All 13 of the scholarship signees from Steve Sarkisian's first football recruiting class are enrolled, as is incoming freshman men's hoops signee Clarence Trent (classmates Abdul Gaddy and C.J. Wilcox are already attending summer school at the UW).
The football freshmen enrolled in LEAP (which stands for Learn + Experience + Archieve Program) are: Marlion Barnett, Talia Crichton, Nate Fellner, James Johnson, Kimo Makaula, Keith Price, Andru Pulu, Chris Robinson, Will Shamburger, Semisi Tokolahi, Desmond Trufant, Tim Rucker and Jordan Wallace.
The summer LEAP program is a six college credit class that talks place five hours-per-day, Monday-Friday for four weeks. The class provides an opportunity for participants to become acclimated to the university experience without the pressures of athletic participation. The students also get an opportunity to bond with other student-athletes and become more acquainted with the University of Washington
