Update on future Husky QB, more

I’ll start today with this update on Dominique Blackman, the quarterback at Carson High in Los Angeles who committed to UW during the summer.
According to the story, Blackman is practicing with the team but is still “indefinitely suspended” and won’t start the team’s opening game Friday night.
Also in the news in LA is this story that QB Kevin Prince of Crespi is out for the season with a knee injury.Prince is another QB target of the Huskies, according to this from Rivals.com listing UW and UCLA as his two favorites. Scout.com has him listing the same two schools as his leaders.
I’ll also link this morning to a couple of stories in our paper.
First is my feature on Louis Rankin who has rushed for 100 or more yards in the first game of the year for three straight seasons now, but this time hopes to keep it going all season.
Everyone uses the word “maturing” to describe Rankin and there’s no question he comes off that way in interviews, giving much more expansive answers now and seeming much more at ease with it all.
I asked Rankin about that and he agreed.
“That’s one of the things that comes with experience as well,” he said. “I never was used to being in the limelight like that, getting interviewed and things like that. Now I’m getting used to it after doing it for so long.”
Rankin is among 11 players on the team who have already earned enough credits to receive their degrees — Rankin’s is in American Ethnic Studies.
There is also this Jerry Brewer column on Dave Kopay as well as this story on the fact that UW and WSU will annonce today a title sponsor for the Apple Cup.
We’ll cover that press conference at 12:30 p.m. and report on it here.
And here’s everything you need to know about Boise State from the Idaho Statesman.
