JUCO WR Could Join UW This Weekend

It's no secret that one of the biggest concerns for the Huskies as they head into fall camp is the wide receiver position and Dawgman.com can now report that there is something in the works to help rectify things, although things still need to sort themselves out...


Dawgman.com learned back in May that Riverside WR K.J. Young has been working to get his two-year degree so that he can enroll at Washington in time for the start of fall camp.
There are still one or two hurdles left for Young to be able to enroll at Washington, but through our various contacts within the JUCO world, we have been able to verify that Young plans to arrive in Seattle on Saturday and hopes to be able to take part in fall camp as it begins on Monday.
As a redshirt sophomore last season for the Tigers, Young led the team with 40 receptions for 421 yards and he tied for the team lead with six touchdown receptions.
Young was a heavily recruited athlete out of Perris (Ca.), eventually signing with Oklahoma and starting three games as a redshirt freshman in 2014, finishing with 19 receptions for 215 yards and a score.
While he showed promise and looked to be in the running for a starting spot in 2015, he was dismissed from Oklahoma for an unspecified violation . He wound up moving back home and enrolled at Riverside where he started all but two games with the Tigers.
If he is able to enroll at Washington and play this fall, he will have two years to play two.
