UW QB Locker Signs With Angels
The UW can confirm that quarterback Jake Locker has agreed to a contract with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Saturday. Jake's father, Scott Locker, who was handling the negotiations, confirmed that the deal was signed Saturday afternoon.
Locker, who has two seasons of football eligibility remaining (2009 and 2010), will have to relinquish his scholarship, but his football eligibility is otherwise unaffected.
The Angels selected Locker with their 10th-round selection, 321st overall, After his senior year at Ferndale High, Locker was chosen by the Angels in the 40th round, but did not sign at that time. He hasn't played baseball at the college level, but did play for the Bellingham (Wash.) Bells in the West Coast Collegiate Baseball League in the summer of 2008.
With Sunday a scheduled off day for the team -- other than the annual Picture Day -- Locker's next scheduled press availability will be after Monday morning's 8:45 a.m. practice.
