So who redshirted this season?

With the season now in the rearview mirror, I’ve had a couple of requests for a final list of players who redshirted this season.

I count first the 14 scholarship true freshmen who did not play this year and automatically redshirted. Here they are:

DB Brandon Beaver

OL Nathan Dean

OL Jake Eldrenkamp

OL Cory Fuavai

OL Taylor Hindy

QB Jeff Lindquist

RB Ryan McDaniel

QB Cyler Miles

LB Blake Rodgers

DL Damion Turpin

CB Cleveland Wallace

DB Darien Washington

RB Dwayne Washington

FB Psalm Wooching

Walk-on true freshmen who sat out the season also basically automatically redshirt, though since walk-ons tend to be a year-to-year proposition anyway they usually don’t get included in these lists — and it doesn’t matter for scholarship reasons. But among the walk-on true frosh who did not play this year and would still have four years of eligibility is OL Michael Kneip.

Also redshirting this season was one player who transferred in and sat out the season — CB Travell Dixon.

Then there are four veterans who missed all  or part of the season with injuries and have never redshirted in the past and fall under all the qualifications for getting a medical redshirt (which technically have to be applied for and approved), so it would be assumed they all did indeed redshirt. Those four are RB Jesse Callier, OL Erik Kohler, WR James Johnson and FB Cooper Pelluer.

Other players who missed all or part of the year with injuries, such as RB Deontae Cooper, DE Hau’oli Jamora or OL Colin Tanigawa, have already redshirted and would not automatically get one for this season. There are cases where players receive additional years of eligibility if they miss most or all of two or more seasons due to injuries, and all three mentioned have cases that fit (especially Cooper, who has now missed three seasons with knee injuries). But those decisions are usually made at the end of a fifth year when it’s established that the player wants to have the additional year and the school has a spot for him, etc. So I wouldn’t expect any of those to be listed now as having received a redshirt season.

Ultimately that’s 20 players who appear to have for sure redshirted this season and should be able to play next season, obviously adding greatly to UW’s depth and overall talent base with the Huskies losing just 10 seniors who were still on the active roster at the end of the season.
