Husky Football Welcomes Six New Players
Jan. 7, 2008
SEATTLE - With today's start of the winter quarter at the University of Washington, the Husky football program officially welcomed six new student-athletes who will be eligible to participate in its off-season conditioning program and spring practice period.
A pair of highly-anticipated receivers in Devin Aguilar (Denver, Colo.) and Anthony Boyles (Compton, Calif.) signed national letters of intent last February but delayed enrollment to UW due to eligibility concerns. Both are enrolled at Washington and are considered true freshmen for eligibility purposes and will have five seasons during which they may play in four.
Washington also confirmed the enrollment of three walk-on transfers to the program in Shaun Brooks (Sacramento, Calif.), Mick Connors (Bellevue, Wash.) and Brendan Lopez (Bellevue, Wash.) in time for the first day of the winter quarter.
Brooks is a 6-3, 280-pound offensive lineman who last competed during the 2006 season at Sierra College in Rocklin, Calif. He played his true freshman season (2005) at Sacramento City College and sat out last fall. He is considered a redshirt junior for eligibility purposes.
The Huskies also welcomed the return of two local Bellevue High School products who have transferred back home after spending one season away. Connors, a 5-11, 175-pound defensive back, played his freshman season at the University of San Diego last fall. Lopez, a 6-0, 244-pound long snapper, was a freshman at Michigan. Both players redshirted the 2007 season and will have four years of eligibility remaining.
