Boyles, Aguilar ineligible?

Internet reports are circulating today that incoming freshman receivers Anthony Boyles and Devin Aguilar will not be eligible this season.
RealDawg.com quotes Boyles — who may be the most highly-touted member of UW’s Class of 2007 — as saying that “I was close on my tests, but I didn’t pass.”
RealDawg also quotes Boyles as saying that he has already talked with UW coaches about coming to Seattle this fall, anyway, with plans to try to get eligible to enroll in January.
RealDawg also reported that Aguilar, a receiver from Denver, will not be eligible.
Dawgman.com quoted Aguilar as saying that he had a problem with his test score and will not be able to report with the rest of the freshmen on Aug. 4. He said he hopes to be able to enroll in September, but that means he would miss the first month of the season and would almost certainly be out for the season.
We’ll try to get further confirmation on these stories, but if true, these are fairly big hits for the Huskies.
DT Emeka Iweka has already said he will be ineligible this season and is likely headed to a JC — meaning his future as a Husky is completely uncertain — while Boyles and Aguilar were each among the top-rated of Washington’s recruits this year.
Each was expected to have a chance to play immediately this year, particularly Boyles, who was rated the 18th-best receiver in the country last year by Scout.com.
The 6-1 Aguilar was considered one of the top all-around athletes in Colorado and had talked of playing both football and basketball at UW.
UPDATE (11:25 a.m.) — I just spoke with Aguilar and he confirmed what had earlier been reported, though he said he fully expects to play at least part of this season.
Aguilar said he has to retake the writing portion of the ACT on Sept. 15 and if he passes that — he said he’s a point shy — then he will enroll at UW on Sept. 26. That would cause him to miss the first four games of the season, but would leave the final nine
“I’ll still be playing football (this year),” he said. “This was a wakeup call that I’ve got to get back on the books again and handle my business.”
