JUCO Punter Inks With The Dawgs

Back in June, Washington got a surprise commitment from Santa Barbara P Joel Whitford, a JUCO punter, and he signed with them today from a very unusual spot...

Whitford redhsirted this season, allowing him to save a season of eligibility, but as a sophomore, the talented punter averaged 37.6 yards on 47 punts with a long of 60 while dropping 23 inside the 20 and allowing just three touchbacks.

One of the biggest keys that led to Washington offering Whitford was his adept "rugby style" kick that really handicaps return men.

Whitford, who hails from Australia, was asked by his coaches to send some pictures of him signing his letter-of-intent, a right of passage for all football prospects, and he decided to add a twist to the typical "kitchen table" signing. 

Check out the pictures for proof...

 

Whitford will have three years to play three starting in the fall.
