Michigan transfer considering UW?

The rumor mill out of Michigan is that Johnny Sears, a cornerback who was a starter for the Wolverines when the season began before recently being dismissed from the team, is considering UW as his next destination.
UW coaches cannot comment on recruitable players and the only official word from the Huskies is that there are no current plans for any transfers to be added to the roster. There are expected to be some additions of walk-ons this week with school official starting Wednesday.
A source, however, said Sears had inquired about coming to UW.
Here is Sears’ bio from Scout.com and as you can see, he’s from Fresno and was recruited by Cal at a time that current UW defensive backs coach J.D. Williams was the secondary coach for the Bears. Williams also is from the Fresno area, so there some ties there that would make this make some sense.
Here’s a story that details Sears’ depature from Michigan which sounds a little mysterious. Sears started Michigan’s historic loss to Appalachian State but was then removed from the lineup the next week against Oregon. He had also been a punt and kick returner for the Wolverines.
As far as I can tell, he would have two years of eligibility left if he came to UW. He would have to sit out this season as a transfer and then would likely be eligible two games into 2008.
And obviously cornerback remains a position of need for UW.
