Washington Huskies OL Colin Porter Retires Due To Shoulder Injuries

Colin Porter, a rising junior offensive lineman for the Washington Huskies has ended his career according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.

Head coach Steve Sarkisian told the Times that Porter is suffering from "degenerative arthritis" in both of his shoulders. The former Bothell HS standout was a mainstay for the Huskies' offensive line the past two seasons. Porter started all 13 games at right guard for the Huskies in 2011.

This news means there is a gap that now needs to be filled on the right side of the offensive line.

Porter was one of the top recruits from the class of 2009, he was ranked as the No. 9 offensive guard and given a four-star rating by Scout.com.

Here's some reaction from different writers and fans following the team:

Horrible news out of Montlake this evening. I can't even begin to describe how bad I feel for this kid, he was a stud on the offensive line and will be greatly missed on the football field. (Via: UW Dawg Pound)
