Heaps update from ESPN — visiting UW tonight

There have been a lot of rumors flying around that Jake Heaps may be at the UW basketball game tonight, taking yet another unofficial visit to Washington.
ESPN.com recruiting analyst Greg Biggins confirmed all of it in his blog today.
It’s an Insider item so you may not be able to access it, so I’ll summarize it a bit. (Actually, looks like it’s a freebie so the link should work).
Heaps said he not only planned to be at UW tonight but again on Saturday and that “hopefully they will clinch the Pac-10 this weekend, that would be awesome.”
He also said he visited Cal last Friday and then Tennessee over the weekend that he plans to visit BYU one more time, noting that his sister lives in Provo.
As for a timetable for a decision, he said: “After that (the visit to BYU) I’m still trying to see if I want to narrow my list down to five, or narrow it to two or just commit to a school. My best-case scenario would be to commit before the summer is here. If I can’t, I would like to commit during the summer. But I’m not going to rush into this. Just whenever I feel the school is right for me I’ll go ahead and make my decision.”
He also talked quite a bit about his visits to Cal and Tennessee. He said of Cal that “I love coach (Jeff) Tedford, there really is no one else like him. He’s a great quarterbacks coach and knows how to develop quarterbacks” though he pointed out that the assistant recruiting him, Frank Cignetti, just left for Pitt.
Of Tennessee he said that “the environment and family atmosphere at Tennessee was incredible” and that “I really got along well with coach (Lane) Kiffin. We really connected and he’s a great teacher of the game.”
So sounds like there may be some definite competition for Heaps, and interesting to see Kiffin’s involvement in a player who is a big priority for Steve Sarkisian — the two are good friends after their years together at USC.
