Yep, that’ll do it.
Thursday afternoon, Washington confirmed that it had dismissed redshirt freshman Patrick Enewally from the football program. The only reason given was that the defensive back had violated unnamed team rules.
Subsequently, however, the Seattle Times and Tacoma News-Tribune both reported that Enewally was involved in a physical altercation with a teammate earlier in the week, which triggered his dismissal. According to the Times, Enewally punched the teammate in the face.
Enewally becomes the first player booted by new head coach Chris Petersen since coming to UW, so he’s got that going for him, which is nice.
The dismissal is a significant blow to the Huskies’ depth in the secondary as the Times writes that Enewally “was one of just four scholarship cornerbacks on the roster this spring.”
Enewally was a three-star member of Steve Sarkisian‘s final UW recruiting class. He took a redshirt as a true freshman last season.
