Mangum leaving Huskies

Backup linebacker Kurt Mangum said today he is leaving UW to finish his college career at Howard University, the first bit of attrition to become public — today was the first day of the winter quarter at Washington.
Mangum told RealDawg.com today he was leaving UW and also said it to the Seattle Times.
Mangum played sparingly last season at UW after redshirting as a true freshman in 2008. He has three years of eligibility left and said he will transfer to Howard University, an FCS school located in Washington, D.C.
When Mangum was recruited, it was thought he could eventually become UW’s middle linebacker of the future. But he said he struggled with a patella tendon knee injury this season and also noted that he essentially had had three defensive coordinators, having been recruited by Kent Baer then playing for Ed Donatell and Nick Holt.
“I have no negatives to say about UW or anything,” said Mangum, a native of Chandler, Ariz. “It’s just a better fit for me to basically go somewhere else.”
Mangum said Howard is a good fit academically to pursue a pre-law degree. (And I should make clear that Mangum said he had some D-I offers but didn’t want to lose a year of eligibility and liked the academics at Howard).
“At age 19 I truly learned the business aspect of college football,” he said. “But it’s all good at the end of the day.”
With UW having just completed the first full season under new coach Steve Sarkisian, it has been expected there might be some attrition, and it’s possible there will be more.
