Defensive end Andru Pulu pleaded guilty to felony second-degree assault Wednesday in King County Court and will be sentenced May 7, leaving his future with the Washington football team in doubt.
The sentencing range is three to nine months, according to a court spokesman.
A UW spokesman said that it's unlikely there will be any final decision made this week on Pulu. There are some "institutional decisions that have to be made" before any official announcement.
Pulu was indefinitely suspended by UW coach Steve Sarkisian on March 9.
The graduate of Federal Way High School played in 11 games as a true freshman for the Huskies last season as a backup defensive end and on special teams. He was expected to contend for a starting job in 2010 before being arrested in connection with an assault at an off-campus party on March 7.
Pulu's suspension combined with injuries to Kalani Aldrich (knee) and Everrette Thompson (Achilles) to make the Huskies especially thin at defensive end this spring. Thompson and Aldrich have been sidelined all spring, but are expected to fully recover before next season.
