Evan Zager, a redshirt freshman who played safety for Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas, Nevada his senior year in high school is transferring. He was a highly rated recruit coming out of high school, as the No. 4 player coming out of the state of Nevada in 2010. Scout had him ranked as the No 28 safety prospect in the country, while rivals had him at the No. 35 spot.
He really didn't do much as a husky in terms of playing time ... but how much can you expect a redshirt freshman to contribute in his second season? Though Zeger played in three games (San Diego State, LSU and Stanford), he failed to record a single stat.
Bob Condotta, from the Seattle Times, reported earlier today that Zeger is indeed transferring, as the school confirmed this with him. From the sounds of it, sources from the University were alluding that Evan was looking to get more playing time.
So, this will lower the amount of scholarships the Huskies currently stand over the limit to 4, assuming all the kids who signed letters of intent this year can make it into school this summer.
We wish you the best of luck Evan, wherever you go, and we hope things work out for you well!
