One other note worth mentioning from the news of the weekend is that every other Husky player is accounted for on the updated roster --- including all incoming freshmen.
That means that as of this moment, all are expected to make it in. The freshmen bridge program starts next Monday, July 7, and all incoming players are apparently expected to enroll. Many are already on-campus taking part in voluntary workouts.
UPDATE --- To be clear on what I'm saying here, I am not saying I have called every recruit and found out they have passing test scores. What I am saying is that as of June 28, UW has all of these players on the roster. When I asked if that meant they expect all of these players to make it in next season, the answer was yes, as of that date, all were expected in. But surprises often pop up. I don't think this means every player has everything completely done, but again, as of Saturday, all remain listed on the roster with the expectation by the university that they will make it.
As for what the bridge program is, you can find a decent explanation here. It's basically just a five-week course that prepares incoming freshmen for what to expect of college life, particularly academically.
And as for any other players leaving the program, the official word as of Saturday was no.
