Former Newport High star Tripper Johnson, who spent eight seasons playing minor league baseball, is officially enrolled at UW in his attempt to change careers and now play college football.
Johnson enrolled in school this week and plans to walk-on and play defensive back.
Here's Johnson's bio from GoHuskies.com which lists him as a junior. Johnson had hoped to have a full four years of eligibility but there are apparently some questions about his eligibility due to having apparently been briefly enrolled in college at some point.
UW coach Tyrone Willingham will meet with the media today at 11 a.m. to preview the beginning of spring football Thursday and we'll have full reports here and in the paper. Spring practice begins Thursday.
