Wide receiver DiAndre Campbell and defensive lineman Andrew Hudson will return to the Washington football team for spring workouts this week, after it was announced at the end of last season that both were leaving the program with eligibility remaining.
Campbell and Hudson have been taking part in the team’s winter conditioning program. If all goes well this spring, they could earn a spot on the roster to play their senior season in 2014.
Campbell and Hudson were two of three juniors, along with linebacker Jamaal Kearse, honored during a senior ceremony before the Apple Cup last November. Another player with eligibility remaining, defensive back Taz Stevenson, also left the team after 2013. Kearse and Stevenson are not expected back.
Campbell appeared in all 13 games for UW last season, mostly on special teams, while playing through nagging injuries. In three seasons, Campbell has 21 receptions for 209 yards and two touchdowns. He was an honorable-mention all-Pac-12 academic selection in 2013.
Hudson started every game at defensive end in 2012, earning all-Pac-12 honorable-mention honors. He was named the Huskies’ L. Wait Rising Defensive Lineman of the Year after posting nine tackles for loss that year. Last season, he lost his starting job to Hau’oli Kikaha and appeared in eight games as a reserve.
The first of 15 spring practices is Tuesday.
UPDATES: UW’s spring roster has been updated online. One notable change: Fullback Psalm Wooching has been switched to defensive end as it appears UW is phasing out the fullback position.
Also, DT Lawrence Lagafuaina is not listed on the UW spring roster. Played sparingly in 2013 while coming back from 2012 torn ACL.
And, yes, 6-foot-7 offensive lineman James Atoe is listed at 375 pounds. That’s not a typo, I’m told. He was listed at 349 for the Fight Hunger Bowl.
