Remember Qwenton Freeman?

If so, you might be glad right now he didn’t make it into Washington in 2005 when he was signed by the Huskies and expected to add some immediate depth at cornerback.
Freeman, who played at Pasadena City College before signing with the Huskies, didn’t get into UW for academic reasons, and after also not making it at Arizona, eventually landed at Montana.
And now, it appears he may be in some slight hot water, according to this Associated Press story, which details how Freeman may have been a witness to a murder and is alleged to not be cooperating with authorities in the investigation. Here’s another take on the same incident.
Freeman was part of Tyrone Willingham’s first recruiting class at Washington in 2005 when the coaches were scrambling to find players after getting hired with less than two months to signng day. Several didn’t make it in, including Freeman and Nevada transfer Chris Handy, and Willingham indicated later that he hoped in future years that having more time would mean taking fewer risks on players who might not make it for academic or other reasons.
Freeman’s is the second rather odd story involving an ex-Husky in recent days.
As detailed here, Mark Farney, a former walk-on linebacker whose tenure with the Huskeis ended in the spring after he was injured, was shot on Friday while working as a security guard outside a University District nightclub.
Here’s a Seattle Times story on the same incident.
