Smith won’t redshirt

A few of you have asked whether there is any thought to redshirt Joel Smith, given the way the season is going and the fact that it is already halfway completed.
UW coach Lorenzo Romar said again today that Smith is definitely playing this season. He is getting healthier every from the stress fracture that has held him out so far, and should be ready to return for next week’s trip to Arizona State and Arizona.
Romar said he has “never wavered” in his decision to have Smith play this season instead of redshirt, and said in his conversations with Smith that Smith has “never wavered” either.
Smith said earlier this year that there was no question he wanted to play this season.
“I can’t see myself waiting,” he said then. “I can see myself helping this team a lot.”
