Former University of Washington tight end and outside linebacker Jusstis Warren announced via his Instagram account that he has transferred to Eastern Washington University.

Warren, who would be eligible for the Eagles this fall as a graduate transfer, has been working out in Cheney this summer, according to multiple sources.

The 6-foot-2, 250-pound Tacoma native saw action in 31 games the past three seasons, totaling nine tackles, a sack, a forced fumble and a reception – a two-yard touchdown catch in 2017.

Warren, a former three-star recruit at Lincoln High School, entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal this past spring due to “a desire to get on the field and get back to defense,” UW tight ends coach Jordan Paopao told The Athletic.

EWU, which shared the Big Sky Conference title last season and advanced to the FCS national title game, returns a bevy of experienced linebackers, including Chris Ojoh, Jack Sendelbach and Andy Katzenberger.

Former Idaho starting linebacker Ty Graham also transferred to EWU during the offseason, but won’t be eligible until 2020 due to NCAA transfer rules.

Warren will face his former team Aug. 31 when the Eagles open their season at Washington.
