Huskies get visit from Saunders
As a true sophomore last fall, Saunders was a First Team All-WAC performer hauling in 50 receptions for 1,065 yards and 12 touchdowns.
"Fresno State is where Jalen wanted to be since high school, but there was a change of philosophy and a change of coaching staff that he no longer felt comfortable being there anymore," Walter Saunders, Jalen's father, told the Fresno Bee earlier this month. "He's been frustrated. Jalen does not fit in their new style of ball. He felt like that even if he stuck with it, he wouldn't progress."
Saunders would need to sit out the 2012 season due to NCAA transfer rules, but then would have two years of eligibility remaining should he sign with Washington.
We will have more in the coming days as Saunders nears making his decision.
