DALLAS — Art Shell has been selected for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame as a member of its Divisional College class.

The divisional class honors coaches and players who competed outside the top level of college football.

Shell played offensive tackle for the University of Maryland Eastern Shore from 1964-67, and went on to a long career with the Oakland Raiders as a player and a coach. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1989.

The other players in this year's divisional class, chosen by the National Football Foundation, are Westminster College (Pa.) quarterback Joe Micchia (1987-89), Washington University linebacker Shelby Jordan (1969-72) and Ithaca College fullback Jeff Wittman (1989-92). The coaches are Frank Cignetti (Indiana University of Pennsylvania), James Donnelly (Austin Peay and Middle Tennessee State) and Jess Dow (Southern Connecticut University).

Washington

Washington wide receiver James Johnson has retired from football due to a wrist injury, ending a once-promising career that was plagued by injuries.

The school announced Johnson's decision Thursday. He was expected to compete for a starting receiver spot this fall.

Johnson's career started with a flourish. He caught a touchdown pass in coach Steve Sarkisian's first game with the Huskies against LSU in 2009. Johnson caught 39 passes for 422 yards and three touchdowns in 2009, but played in just six games as a sophomore and fell down the depth chart as a junior.

Johnson injured his wrist during training camp last August and missed the entire 2012 season.

Washington also announced that receiver Jamaal Jones, defensive back Darien Washington, running back Erich Wilson II and linebacker Evan Zeger have requested and been granted release from the program.
