Jeshua Anderson's Olympic dreams are over for 2008. After winning the 400m hurdles on Friday, he placed fifth last night. Only the top four can go on to the next round, so, Anderson's done with track for now. That should (hopefully) green-light his return to football. At least he said so after Saturday's loss, that he's now going to get ready for football. Can't WAIT to see him spread out wide and running under some deep fly balls from Gary Rogers!
Cole Morgan has left the building. Morgan will head to Western immediately after signing on for a scholarship on Friday. Will we miss Morgan? Hard to say. He only played in one game, in 2006, but otherwise was buried in the QB rotation, never rising above 3rd string. Maybe he would have had a decent shot at the job next year, but it's all moot now. Good luck Cole.
Breaking recruiting news from last night - WSU has a third verbal in Cali d-tackle Justin Clayton, a high-energy, 6-4, 245-pounder from Napa. He made all-Bay-Area on both offense and defense as a junior last year. From Scout.com's profile:
A first team all-league selection on both lines his junior season, Clayton was also named first team all-county on defense. Has a motor that doesn't quit. Projects as a defensive tackle or could potentially also play defensive end in college.Nice. That's three verbals and it's still June. Last year when Wulff took the job in mid-December? Three verbals. What a difference.
Yes, JR Hasty is now officially out of UW. No, he won't be headed to WSU, despite the obvious ties with the senior Hasty. If Hasty were to pursue another D-1 opportunity, he'd only have one year of eligibility left. He's much more likely to head somewhere like Central. If you remember, Hasty was as touted as they come in high school, a 4-star tailback who had 50 TD's his senior year. His entire UW career? Six carries, 18 yards. What happened???
Finally, our own "Big Apple", Alex Brink, signed his contract in Houston. And, yeah, they TOTALLY DIG HIM down there! Check out this article.
