story out of seattle that a 4-star linebacker recruit from reno asks huskie hc chris petersen for his release to return home for family matters. key point is the young man had not enrolled in uw for classes. petersen grants the young man his release and is apparently headed to where? not reno, but tuscaloosa and it is possible he will be able to enroll in time to join bama this year and provide depth to a thin linebacker position which raises a few questions. did the young man honestly change his mind about uw? was he contacted by someone connected to the bama program? i am in favor of the new transfer rule, but not in favor to this extent. https://www.al.com/alabamafootball/index.ssf/2018/08/top_lb_recruit_ale_kaho_leavin.html what is most interesting to me is the linked articles are from creg stephenson who writes for the alabama media group and not the seattle papers.
