The good news yesterday was that freshman defensive tackle Senio Kelemete finally arrived at Washington's camp.
The bad news is that it sounds now as if he never needed to be delayed in his arrival in the first place.
Kelemete's high school coach at Evergreen, Shaun Tarantola, said yesterday that just as Kelemete was completing his final test for an on-line class to complete his final core course, the NCAA Clearinghouse determined it had initially erred, and Kelemete had everything he needed all along.
"He took the test (Tuesday) night and we're assuming he passed,'' he said. "But we just found out that the Clearinghouse cleared him and that it was a mistake on their part. All of that was basically for nothing, so Senio missed a week-and-a-half of practice for a Clearinghouse mistake.
"It's too bad for him, but it makes him a little more hungry to get in the mix.''
