New player arrives

There was quite a bit of news at Husky camp today as Tyrone Willingham announced that former Texas running back Michael Houston has decided to transfer to UW and also updated the status of DE Greyson Gunheim, who suffered a knee injury Saturday.
Willingham said Gunheim will not need surgery and will be out 1-3 weeks.
Willingham did not specify the nature of Gunheim’s injury, but the fact that he could conceivably be back for the opener against San Jose State is obviously good news for UW. Gunheim wore pads for the morning practice but was in a red jersey.
Gunheim met with the media shortly after Willingham and said he suffered a strain of his MCL and that it’s not too serious.
“I think I’ll be ready for San Jose State,” he said.
Houston played sparingly as a true freshman last year at Texas before deciding to leave. Willingham had recruited him while coach at Notre Dame so the two already had a relationship.
Houston is listed at 238 pounds and as a fullback in some circles. But Willingham said he will be a tailback for UW.
“We keep redefining our positions,” Willingham said.
Houston will have to sit out this season before being eligible to play next year.
He will begin practicing with the team today but will not be able to do any full pads work until five practices have elapsed.
Willingham also announced that walk-on linebacker Mark Farney of Bellevue High has rejoined the team.
Willingham also said that WR Marcel Reece (blister) returned to practice today after sitting out Saturday’s scrimmage.
However, there remains no movement on the status of the team’s four academic holdouts, particularly JC safety Ashlee Palmer. There had been speculation he would be eligible this week, but he has not yet been cleared. Willingham said it could happen at any moment, but for not, he’s not there.
Willingham also said that in reviewing the film of Saturday’s scrimmage, little has changed his mind that the offense was “sloppy.” But he said the offense had a better time of it today.
Cornerback Roy Lewis wore the gold jersey Monday for his play in the scrimmage. He was the only player honored.
