As the Penn State sanctions continue to ripple through the school, offensive tackle Ryan Nowicki could become one of the first players to leave the Nittany Lions for greener pastures. And n the case of Nowicki, those pastures come in the form of the University of Washington.
According to a report from The News Tribune, the 6-foot-5 and 285-pound redshirt freshman, is planning on leaving Penn State, considering a number of schools to play for, including the Huskies.
A source close to the situation has said that the University of Illinois is Nowicki's current favorite, but Washington and Arizona State are also on his short list. Nowicki, still has four years of eligibility remaining, and is expected to visit Washington on Thursday or Friday this week.
Nowicki was a three-star recruit out of Glendale, Arizona's Cactus High School. He considered offers from USC, Michigan and Washington before ultimately deciding on Penn State.
