Two players depart, more

A couple of quick notes:
— Tight end Tim Williams and walk-on quarterback Chandler Clemons won’t be back with the Huskies in the fall.
Williams, from W.F. West High in Chehalis, was part of Tyrone Willingham’s first recruiting class in 2005 but had seen sparing action and was far back on the depth chart coming out of spring practice. And with Chris Izbikci arriving in the fall, the log jam was only going to get tighter.
Clemons, from Folsom, Calif., came to UW in the spring as a recruited walk-on with the Huskies suddenly needing depth at the quarterback spot after the loss of Johnny DuRocher. But Clemons ended the spring No. 4 on the depth chart after falling behind freshman Ronnie Fouch, who was one of the surprises of spring drills. No report yet on where either Clemons or Williams may be headed.
The loss of Clemons figures to mean the Huskies will bring in another walk-on QB in the fall as Washington now has just three quarterbacks on its roster — Jake Locker, Carl Bonnell and Fouch, who is a member of the Class of 2007 but arrived early in the spring to get a head start on his career.
— The Huskies recently concluded negotiations on the scheduling contract with Hawaii. The Huskies will travel to Hawaii this year (Dec. 1) with Hawaii coming back here in 2011.
Reports are that the Huskies will receive $350,000 for the trip to Hawaii, one of the highest payouts given to an opponent (some teams take a combination of expense money, tickets, etc., but UW took it all in cash). WSU is reportedly getting $300,000 for traveling to Hawaii in 2008.
— What I can say on questions of eligibility is that as of this moment, Anthony Boyles is expected to make it in while Emeka Iweka is not. Every other incoming freshmen is expected to be okay.
