Friday morning links — Boyd, Purvis not coming

As the headlines says. …
James Boyd and Delvon Purvis, the two Jordan High players profiled in the LA Times story earlier this week that helped get UW a secondary recruiting violation, have decided not to take their recruiting visit to UW this weekend. Their coach, Elijah Asante, told the LA Times the two “just decided to back off because of all the negative publicity” about their visit. Boyd is considered a commit to USC while Purvis is undecided though the LA Times reported earlier in the week Boyd wouldn’t make a final decision until LOI day next week, in part because of a recent commitment USC received from another DE, Derek Kennard.
.
— That leaves UW with five known visits this weekend, according to Scout.com, though that’s always subject to change. The five are:
CB Brandon Sermons (Diamond Ranch HS) Pomona, CA
CB David Batts (El Camino JC) Torrance, CA
DE Ryan Davis (Cerritos JC) Norwalk, CA
DT Johnny Tivao (Cerritos JC) Norwalk, CA
OT Daniel Mafoe (El Camino JC) Torrance, CA
As you can see, there are four JC players on the list, all from Steve Sarkisian’s old stomping grounds in the Torrance, Cerritos area.
RealDawg.com is also reporting that punter William Mahan of Bakersfield College will visit this weekend. That might answer the question of who punts next season. Here’s a story from a few years ago when Mahan higt a 57-yard field goal in high school, so he appears to have a strong leg.
— The Eugene Register-Guard today has a good look at the increasing challenges of getting junior college players into school.
— BusterSports.com, meanwhile, has a likewise interesting look at the increasing spotlight on assistant coaches.

All for now.
