SEATTLE - On a day when Husky fans celebrate the return of Jake Locker, KING 5 News has learned that the UW football program has recently self-reported a violation where more than $300 worth of alcohol was purchased for underage recruits on a recruiting visit.
Coach Sarkisian said players took recruits out and the recruits didn't have enough money, so the Husky players paid for the tabs.
Each one of the current players signed a waiver before taking the recruits out. The waiver outlines what is legal and what is not legal.
The UW handed out punishments internally. Husky players involved performed community service while the recruits repaid the money they borrowed.
While it's a violation, it's not considered a major violation.
It happened on Sarkisian's first full recruiting weekend as a head coach.
