This weekend’s visitors

So it sounds as if there were 13 recruits in for visits this weekend with apparently a few late-minute surprise additions, according to Scout.com.
The visitors included two defensive linemen reported as having already given commitments to other Pac-10 schools —- Branden Warner of Compton CC who has given a commitment to UCLA; and Will Sutton of Corona, Calif., who had given a commitment to Arizona State. Also visiting, according to Scout.com, was linebacker Taniela Maka of Long Beach Jordan who has committed to UCLA.
Getting visits from three players committed elsewhere shows Steve Sarkisian and staff is being aggressive and getting a lot of interest. By way of comparison, UW had just 20 recruits in for visits spread over five weekends in 2005 after Tyrone Willingham took over.
Hard to know if UW will have any luck getting any of those three. Warner is the highest-rated at four stars but he also has a visit on tap to Tennessee next weekend, so the competition there is pretty fierce (and that may be the first recruiting battle between good friends Sarkisian and Lane Kiffin).
A couple other notes:
— For those who ask if Sarkisian is going after any JC players, Warner is obviously one example that he is, as is TE Dorson Boyce, who has already committed. Scout.com also reports two other JC players coming in next weekend, WR Owen Dixon of Pasadena CC and G Eddie Williams of Mt. Sac.
— There are a couple different reports out there that Nathan Fellner re-affirmed his commitment to UW during his visit this weekend.
— There had been some rumors that Deandre Coleman might visit, but he didn’t and apparently won’t take any visits anywhere, having already committed to Cal.
— Interesting note from Scott Wolf of the LA Daily News that Nick Holt recently asked Pete Carroll for some film of USC’s defensive practices and was told he couldn’t have them.
All for now.
