DuRocher and more

Sounds as if the surgery for Johnny DuRocher on Thursday went according to plan.
That’s the word from a Harborview spokeswoman, anyway, in a short story we posted last night. A news conference is scheduled for this afternoon and we will have more on DuRocher then.
Also, here’s our full story on the initial vision on what a new Husky Stadium could look like, with some other information. I’m happy to answer questions about what was said. The presentation lasted about 45 minutes so there was a lot of information that didn’t get in the story today.
And thanks to everyone for the comments yesterday about where to take the blog now. A lot of you mentioned recruiting, so we’ll do what we can to provide our own info, or at least point you to revelant information elsewhere.
This is the first big recruiting weekend of the off-season and here’s an early list of some of the players expected to be in town. As you can tell, two of the players, Quinton Richardson and Alvin Logan, have already committed
There’s also a running back on the list, Willie Griffin, a sign that the Huskies are serious about improving their depth there. UW already has commitments from two running backs, but it’s known they want to get a few more. Right now, Louis Rankin is the only tailback on the roster who has had a carry in a game.
Here’s a story on Griffin from a few weeks ago.
Also on the list is D.J. Holt, a highly-rated linebacker from the San Fernando Valley area in California. Holt also played receiver at Crespi High and here’s a story on his team’s final playoff game.
The state title games are this weekend, and here’s a story we ran today on Kennedy’s Nate Williams, who will play in the 3A title game tonight against Bellevue. Williams has already committed to UW.
Lastly, here’s a story on Leon Jackson deciding to head to Hawaii to continue his college career.
