Recruiting update, Sunday

Here’s a little info for you:
— Doesn’t sound like there were any new commits this weekend.
— Kennedy High DE Everette Thompson apparently didn’t start his visit until Saturday morning, so he may not be done yet — visits can last up to 48 hours.
— I did talk to Bellevue High center David DeCastro, who is officially a Stanford commit, and he said his visit this weekend was good and “definitely helped in terms of the UW side. It was good to see it and just cool to hang out with the players and get a different view of football and life and all the people and the social aspect and stuff.”
DeCastro said he still considers himself committed to Stanford but that he also isn’t closing the door on UW.
“Stanford is still there, but you never know,” he said. “I’ll take some time. I don’t know what is going on in my mind right now.”
DeCastro said Stanford coaches were at his house today and that he will have a home visit from UW coach Tyrone Willingham and line coach Mike Denbrock later this week.
DeCastro said he might not make his final decision until signing day on Feb. 6.
“When I sign, I’ll sign,” he said.
DeCastro said he’ll likely take the holiday period to think about his decision some more. Coaches can have no contact with players from Dec. 17-Jan. 3 (you can see the recruiting calender here).
“That will be really, really nice,” he said of the dead period. “I’m looking forward to it. There’s lots of pressure from everybody. But we’ll see what happens.”
