Updated scholarship tracker

I know I’ve been promising this for a while, so here goes, an updated look at UW’s scholarship players by position.
This is for the current roster only.
QUARTERBACK
Ronnie Fouch, Soph.
Keith Price, Fr.
TOTAL — 2
COMMENT — After getting his bonus money from the Angels, Jake Locker is officially no longer on scholarship thus making him the best walk-on QB in the country. And also giving the Huskies an out — how can they be expected to win games with a walk-on at QB?
TAILBACK
Johri Fogerson, Soph.
Willie Griffin, Soph.
Curtis Shaw, Soph.
Brandon Yakaboski, Soph.
Demitrius Bronson, Fr.
Chris Polk, Fr.
TOTAL — 6
COMMENT — Polk has really taken command of this spot, which certainly makes you wonder how many of the guys behind him will stay at TB, or stay around at all, especially with some talented high school guys coming in next year. On the other hand, an injury or two would elevate guys quickly. Yakaboski remains on the team on scholarship though he hasn’t played in more than a year now.


FULLBACK
Paul Homer, Sr.
Austin Sylvester, Jr.
Kimo Makaula, Fr.
TOTAL — 3
COMMENT — No change here since the start of the year.
WIDE RECEIVER
D’Andre Goodwin, Jr.
Devin Aguilar, Soph.
Cody Bruns, Soph.
Jermaine Kearse, Soph.
Jordan Polk, Soph.
Luther Leonard, Fr.
Vince Taylor, Fr.
James Johnson, Fr.
TOTAL — 8
COMMENT — Down to eight here with the recent move of Anthony Boyles to DB. But that’s proven to be more than enough with the way the Huskies have narrowed the rotation here in recent weeks, with only four guys really seeing any time.
TIGHT END
Dorson Boyce, Jr.
Kavario Middleton, Soph.
Chris Izbicki, Soph.
Marlion Barnett, Fr.
TOTAL — 4
COMMENT — No change here since the start of the season.
OFFENSIVE LINE
Nick Scott, Sr.
Morgan Rosborough, Sr.
Ben Ossai, Sr.
Cody Habben, Jr.
Ryan Tolar, Jr.
Greg Christine, Jr.
Senio Kelemete, Soph.
Skyler Fancher, Soph.
Mark Armelin, Soph.
Scott Shugert, Soph.
Nick Wood, Soph.
Craig Noble, Fr.
Drew Schaefer, Fr.
Terrence Thomas, Fr.
Mykenna Ikehara, Fr.
TOTAL — 15
COMMENT — Christine and Scott are each walk-ons awarded scholarships before the year. Scott obviously graduates so that will open up. Noble is still listed on the roster as on scholarship but since he can’t play (due to a heart condition), he will be moved to a medical scholarship, opening up one for the football team. Four of the players on this list are out for the year, leaving UW with just 11 current scholarship OLs
DEFENSIVE LINE
Daniel Te’o-Nesheim, Sr.
Darrion Jones, Sr.
De’Shon Matthews, Jr.
Cameron Elisara, Jr.
Kalani Aldrich, Soph.
Alameda Ta’amu, Soph.
Tyrone Duncan, Soph.
Everrette Thompson, Soph.
Talia Crichton, Fr.
Andru Pulu, Fr.
Chris Robinson, Fr.
Semisi Tokolahi, Fr.
TOTAL — 12.
COMMENT — Lost two players here early on with the switch of Wood and Noble.
LINEBACKERS
Donald Butler, Sr.
E.J. Savannah, Sr.
Josh Gage, Sr.
Trenton Tuiasosopo, Sr.
T.J. Poe, Sr.
Brandon Hupper, ,Jr.
Matt Houston, Jr.
Mason Foster, Jr.
Cort Dennison, Soph.
Alvin Logan, Soph.
Kurt Mangum, Fr.
Tim Tucker, Fr.
Jordan Wallace, Fr.
TOTAL — 13
COMMENT — Gage, Huppert and Poe are all walk-ons awarded scholarships before the season. Those are renewable each year (all scholarships technically are) so there is no commitment beyond this season, necessarily. Looks like Logan is making this move permanently.
DEFENSIVE BACKS
Jason Wells, Sr.
Vonzell McDowell Jr., Jr.
Nate Williams, Jr.
Victor Aiyewa, Jr.
Quinton Richardson, Soph.
Marquis Persley, Soph.
Anthony Boyles, Fr.
Greg Walker, Fr.
Adam Long, Fr.
Justin Glenn, Fr.
Anthony Gobern, Fr.
Will Shamburger, Fr.
Nate Fellner, Fr.
Desmond Trufant, Fr.
TOTAL — 14
COMMENT — A few changes here with the addition of Boyles, the switch of Logan to LB and the transfer this week of Matt Mosley.
SPECIALISTS
Danny Morovick (snapper), Sr.
Will Mahan (punter) Jr.
Erik Folk (PK), Soph.
TOTAL — 3
COMMENT — No change since the start of the season.
TOTALS BY CLASS
Senior — 13
Junior — 15
Sophomore — 25
Freshmen — 27
Total overall — 80
COMMENT — So that leaves the Huskies with 80 players currently on scholarship, out of a maximum of 85. With 13 seniors, that’s 18 spots open for next season (and 19 if Noble gets moved off football scholarship, which will happen at some point). But as mentioned, the scholarships to the two junior walk-ons, each battling knee injuries, are also not committed past this season. So that’s 20 spots for next season. Assume the usual attrition of 3-5 or so, and maybe even more given a new staff finishing its first year, and easy to see how the Huskies will fit in a full class of scholarship players.
UW is listed with 22 commits for next year and expected to take 3-5 more or so. You can officially take 25 in a class, but guys can count forward or back depending on when they enroll, and at at least two of the guys who have committed have indicated they may come in early, including RB Deontae Cooper. (though not Nick Montana, who will need the spring to graduate from high school). So fitting in all signees onto next year’s roster doesn’t appear to be any problem.
