Taz Stevenson, who spent the past four seasons at Washington, is expected to join the Rainbow Warriors as a walk-on this summer. He will be eligible to transfer without restrictions after earning his bachelor's degree next month.
He played in 35 of Washington's 39 games between 2010 and 2012, mostly on special teams. He was listed as a safety.
He did not play this past season because of a shoulder injury. For the Huskies' final home game, he was honored as a departing senior despite having a season of eligibility remaining.
Stevenson would be joining a growing list of transfers from four-year colleges:
Offense — WR Duke Bukoski (Idaho State), Taylor Graham (Ohio State), RB Jason Muraoka (Franklin), SB Quinton Pedroza (Utah), TE Jordan Pu‘u-Robinson (Washington State), OG Kory Rasmussen (Colorado), Brenden Urban (Adams State).
Defense — OLB Jeremy Castro (UCLA), DE Nick Childs (Avila), DB Keahi Hogan (Arizona), LB Austin Slade (Oregon State), DL Haani Tulimaiau (Montana).
Specialist — PK Ceejay Santos.
