Patrick Enewally Gets the Boot

The redshirt freshman's expulsion from the team leaves an already thin position group that much weaker.

It seems that some players are just never meant to see the field.

Redshirt freshman safety Patrick Enewally became the first casualty of the Chris Petersen era today after he was kicked off of the team for an unspecified violation of team rules.

Enewally was three-star recruit in the Huskies' 2013  class, hailing from Gahr (Richard) High School in Ceritos, Calif. He fielded offers from much of the rest of the Pac-12 as a high-school recruit, and figured to be well in the mix for playing time this fall. His expulsion from the program leaves the defensive secondary dangerously thin (just 12 scholarship players for the two cornerback and two safety positions), at least until the eight CB/safety recruits from the 2014 class arrive on campus in the fall.

As is usually the case, it is unclear in this case just what exactly was the specific violation of team rules that earned Enewally the ire of his new coaching staff. We'll keep you posted as more details become available.

UPDATE

Christian Caple and Adam Jude shed some light on the reason for Enewally's dismissal. Thanks to commenter ATotalWimp for bringing it to our attention, too.
