SEATTLE – Washington junior cornerback Chris Handy was declared academically ineligible Thursday for failure to complete his associate’s degree from Pasadena Community College in California.


Handy finished his last term at Pasadena CC in early August, then joined the Huskies. Washington officials did not receive his transcripts from the community college until this week. Handy was allowed to practice with the team during the preseason while Washington awaited the transcripts.


Handy had played at Nevada for two seasons before transferring to Pasadena CC. He was listed second on Washington’s depth chart behind junior Matt Fountaine.
