We’ll start today with the news that incoming UW freshman Danny Shelton, pictured right, has been named as the Athlete of the Year by the Auburn Reporter.
The story includes some interesting thoughts from Shelton on how he has handled the tragedy in his family as well as a look at his recruiting process.
Shelton and the rest of the frosh are due to arrive for the LEAP program on July 6, the official beginning of their college careers. Shelton is one who could play pretty quickly given his apparent ability and UW’s possible needs up front on the defensive line.
