Izbicki leaves UW program

After four years in the program, it has been confirmed that TE Chris Izbicki, who prepped at Lake Washington High School and was one of the top high school tight end prospects in the country his senior year, has decided to leave the Husky football program...

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times was the first to receive confirmation that Izbicki had left the program.

Izbicki played in 10 of Washington's 12 games this season, starting one game -- vs. Syracuse, but had seen his playing time eaten into by the emergence of offensive lineman Dan Kanczugowski who has been used as a blocking tight end by the Husky offensive coaching staff.

In his four years on campus, Izbicki five catches for 23 yards and two touchdowns, including one that came against USC in Washington's thrilling 32-31 win over the Trojans.

In the summer before his redshirt freshman season in 2008, Izbicki ran into trouble when he cited for public intoxication after blowing a .241 in a voluntary breathalyzer test.

Izbicki's absence will open things up more for incoming freshman Austin Seferian-Jenkins as well as holdovers Michael Hartvigson and Marlion Barnett.
