Washington, UCLA rumored as landing spots for ex-Fresno WR

A couple of weeks after Fresno State’s leading receiver in 2011 decided to leave the football program, speculation is beginning to bubble to the surface as to where said receiver may ultimately land.

By way of Dawgman.com, the Fresno Bee reported via Twitter that Jalen Saunders visited the Washington Huskies over the weekend.  What if any other visits Saunders has planned are unknown.

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times notes that there’s speculation that Saunders could also be interested in UCLA.

The Bee‘s Joe Davidson made the case late last week that Saunders should look toward Sacramento State as a potential transfer destination.  A move to that school, a Div. 1-AA (FCS) program, would allow Saunders to play immediately.  Short of a successful appeal for a waiver, Saunders would have to sit the 2012 season if he remains at the Div. 1-A (FBS) level.

Based on his 2011 season, Saunders’ talent suggests he likely belongs at the latter level.  As a sophomore, the California native caught 50 passes for 1065 yards and 14 total touchdowns.  For that, he was named first-team All-WAC.
