Washington redshirt sophomore LB Camilo Eifler transferred to Illinois.
Eifler (6'2/215) was a four-star linebacker in Washington's 2016 recruiting class, with ranking him at the time as the No. 94 overall prospect of the cycle. After taking a redshirt his first year on campus, the linebacker managed just six total tackles for the past campaign while seeing most of his time on special teams. While Eifler has yet to show out on the field to any great degree, this transfer get makes for a fine flier for the Illini. He'll have to sit out the upcoming season to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations. Tue, Jul 3, 2018 01:02:00 PM

Washington redshirt sophomore LB Camilo Eifler visited Illinois last weekend.

It's an unofficial visit. Eifler (6'2/215) was one of the highest-rated players to commit under Chris Petersen, but couldn't find the field behind the strong Washington linebacker corp. Illinois could use playmakers everywhere, and if he did transfer, he'd be a contender for plenty of run after he sits out one year due to transfer rules. Eifler has not yet announced when he'll make a decision on where he'll transfer.

Washington redshirt sophomore LB Camilo Eifler will transfer.

This offseason has gone quite smoothly for the Huskies as they look to make a Playoff push in the autumn, but even the mightiest of squads can't hang on to everybody. While the 6-foot-2, 215-pound Eifler did see the field in 13 contests last season, he was mostly being utilized as a special teams piece, notching just six tackles for the campaign. Washington has depth at linebacker -- Eifler would have probably needed a strong push to start this year -- but the former four-star recruit is among the more athletic members of the position group and his transfer can't be counted as ideal for HC Chris Petersen's cause in Seattle. Should the redshirt sophomore opt to keep his move within the FBS, he'll have to sit out the upcoming campaign to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations.

Washington signed four-star LB Camilo Eifler.

Eifler committed to Washington in July and held firm to his word on National Signing Day. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder was drawn in by the environment on campus, saying, "I chose Washington because I felt the trust from Coach Petersen in building a program with academic excellence and athletic success. I felt very comfortable with the team and it felt like home." He also showed a nice head on his shoulders when he indicated that another reason he chose the Huskies is that he would have job opportunities in Seattle should the whole football thing not work out for him. Eifler's still raw at linebacker, having transitioned over from defensive end two years ago, but's Greg Biggins notes that he has "developed in to an athletic, physical linebacker who can run and hit."
