Drew Schultz, a senior defensive lineman from Olympia High School, and junior safety Brian Clay have been awarded scholarships by Washington coach Chris Petersen.

The 6-foot-2, 266-pound Schultz appeared in two games for the Huskies last season. In 2012, he made one start at defensive tackle, against Utah, and also earned the Mark Drennan Defensive Scout of the Year Award at the team’s postseason banquet.

Clay, from Vacaville, Calif., transferred to UW from Hawaii in September 2013. He sat out the 2013 under NCAA transfer rules, but figures to be a key reserve for a young UW secondary this season.

“Two kids that have done everything right, worked their tail off; our weight room (staff) has loved them, the guys in our lockerroom really love those kids,” Petersen said. “And it’s always a good day when we can take care of guys who deserve to be on. And there’s probably a couple other guys who deserve to be on right now that we don’t have scholarships for, but hopefully down the road we will.”
