We’ll start this morning with the news that broke last night that receiver Jalen Saunders, a transfer from Fresno State who had been considering UW, has instead decided to play next at Oklahoma.
Saunders had visited UW last month as part of a tour of a couple of schools after leaving Fresno State. Another transfer, Tee Shepard of Notre Dame, is still undecided.
