Practice over — Gaisie likely done at UW

A practice that ended in a downpour worthy of November has ended, and I’ll have more on some of the specifics of it later in the full practice report.
For now, a few quick notes, including the news that JC transfer cornerback Dominique Gaisie is unlikely to make it in to school.
“It doesn’t look like he’s going to make it,” UW coach Steve Sarkisian said after practice. “At this point I would be very shocked if it did happen.” Sarkisian said official word may have come during practice that Gaisie, a transfer from Mt. SAC JC in the southern California area, wouldn’t make it in.
“It’s unfortunate,” Sarkisian said. “He’s a great player and if it doesn’t happen we wish him the best of luck. He’s a very good kid.”
Gaisie participated in UW’s first practice Monday before it was learned that the NCAA Clearinghouse was reviewing his transcripts. Sarkisian said he didn’t know the specifics of it to know if there was a chance that Gaisie could return at a later date but he seemed to indicate it won’t happen.
He also said that there is basically no chance that Johnny Tivao or Daniel Mafoe will make it in — he had held out some hope that the latter could make it. That means three of UW’s six JC signees won’t make it into school this year.
No serious injuries today but safety Nate Williams (knee from Wednesday), DE Darrion Jones (hand) and FB Paul Homer (hamstring) all were limited or out of practice today. None of the injuries sounds serious.
More later.
