Huskies cut two players for violating team rules

The University of Washington football team has dropped two players from the team for violating team rules.

The school says in a brief statement:

“Joshua Perkins and Willis Wilson have been dismissed from the University of Washington football team due to a violation of team rules, Coach Steve Sarkisian announced today.
Neither Coach Sarkisian, nor the University, will have any further comment on this matter.”

The Seattle Times Bob Condotta reports Perkins was a redshirt freshman from Gahr High in Cerritos, Calif., who had been moved from receiver to H-back prior to the start of fall camp. He participated in UW’s practice Wednesday night and had seemed to be coming on in recent days.

Condotta reports Wilson was a sophomore walk-on from Lakes High who had recently appeared to be the No. 4 tailback and was being counted on to provide some depth this season with Deontae Cooper again out for the year with a knee injury.
