Tuesday night notes — updates on Fogerson and Iweka

Never a dull moment. …
— Scout.com has news tonight that O’Dea High FB Zach Fogerson now considers himself a “soft verbal” to UW after getting an offer from Michigan. He said in the story that he is “80 percent” committed to UW but wants to visit USC, Tennessee, Michigan, Nebraska and North Carolina before deciding. Fogerson, the younger brother of current UW safety Johri Fogerson, committed to UW last fall when Tyrone Willingham was still coach, becoming at the time the earliest commit in Husky history. Not unusual for really early commits to end up wanting to explore their options, however, and Fogerson has been getting increased interest as his stock has risen — Scout.com lists him as the No. 4 player in the state and the No. 2 fullback in the nation.
— Speaking of players who once were known for making really early commits, looks as if Emeka Iweka may be turning back to basketball — the sport he once committed to play at Oregon State as a ninth-grader at Rainier Beach before turning to football and signing with UW in 2007. Waylaid by academic problems, he spent the last two years at Arizona Western JC (sitting out in 2007 due to injury). But he is now listed as having signed a letter-of-intent to play basketball next year at North Idaho College in Coeur d’Alene. If I get more on this I will pass it along. (And thanks to a few of you out there for the heads up on this).
— Washington announced an addition to its compliance staff today. However, there is still some thought that the Huskies may make some personnel cuts in the athletic department sometime soon.
— This is a few days old and I simply forgot to post it earlier, but here’s an update on Johnny DuRocher’s attempt to make a football comeback. We had this story on DuRocher last March.
— Buster Sports plans to rank the top 50 Pac-10 coaches of all time this summer and wants your input.
— Buster Sports also wonders if the Pac-10 will be able to fill all six of its bowl agreements for next season.
All for now.
