UW announces Polk to leave

A big morning news for UW it appears as the school has also just announced that Chris Polk is leaving for the NFL, something that is no surprise.

Here’s the link.

UW coach Steve Sarkisian said in a release that: “Chris had a terrific career at Washington and deserves the opportunity to move on to the next level. We wish him nothing but the best in what I’m sure will be a great professional career.”
As the release states:

Polk, a fourth-year junior from Redlands, Calif., has already earned his bachelor’s degree in American ethnic studies.
The Huskies’ three-time offensive MVP, Polk is one of only two Huskies to rush for 1,000 yards in three seasons. His 2011 total of 1,488 yards ranked second in school history, just ahead of his 2010 tally of 1,415 yards, now third-best. As a redshirt freshman in 2009, he ran for 1,113 yards.
Polk leaves Washington with 4,049 yards on 799 carries over 40 games. His yardage total is second-best ever at the school, just 57 yards short of Napoleon Kaufman’s school record (4,106). His 799 career carries were a school record, as was his career average of 101.2 yards per game and his 21 career 100-yard games.
