The Washington Huskies announced today that receiver Curtis Shaw is leaving the team for family reasons. The school said that he is in no legal trouble and is in good standing with the team. He is free to return at some later date, but his absence is considered long-term.
Shaw is a sophomore from Stockton, Calif. He caught five passes last season, but even that figure would have made him the second-leading returning receiver behind D'Andre Goodwin, who had six catches.
Although no official depth chart has circulated this fall, Shaw seemed to be working mostly with the second team.
