Former Bellevue star to walk-on at UW

Got a hold of Bellevue coach Butch Goncharoff, who confirmed reports that former Wolverine Brendan Lopez is leaving Michigan to come to UW.
Lopez, who was the Kingco 3A Co-Defensive MVP as a linebacker at Bellevue in 2006, is a walk-on linebacker and deep snapper at Michigan, having gone there along with good friend and former high school teammate Stephen Schilling.
“He wants to come back home,” Goncharoff said of Lopez, who earlier talked about his decision with RealDawg.com.
Goncharoff said Lopez was offered scholarships by Illinois and Oregon State to be a deep snapper out of high school. He may have a chance to earn one at UW. He redshirted this year at Michigan so he will have four years of eligibility left at UW. Current Husky deep snapper Danny Morovick will be a junior next season.
Lopez is listed at 6-foot, 244 pounds.
