Reffett's plans put on hold caught up with Jordan Reffett, the 6-6, 250-pound defensive lineman from Moses Lake, Washington, and Jordan was able to confirm what newspaper reports have been saying this morning regarding his academic situation. It isn't something he can't overcome and his immediate plans include moving out west to start taking care of business.

"It's really unfortunate that I'm not going to be up there this fall," Reffett said this morning. "But I can't blame anybody but myself. I made my bed and it's something I'm going to have to dig myself out of."

Jordan indicated a low SAT score was the reason why he won't be making it to Montlake on Tuesday. "I'm 50 points off," he said. " The clearinghouse has that sliding scale, so once I get the score I need I'll be good to go."

In the meantime, Reffett isn't sitting on his hands. "My mom lives in Gig Harbor, so I'll be moving there and getting a job and working on my SAT. They are both teachers, so that should help me a lot." He also acknowledged that he'll be as involved with the team as much as possible. "I talked to Coach (Chuck) Heater and Coach (Brent) Myers three days ago," Jordan said. "They want me to stay ready to go. I'll be up there in January, no problem. I'm not going anywhere else. It's just a bump in the road." Top Stories
