Sunday notes — another new Husky

As one of Jimmy Fallon’s characters on Saturday Night Live used to say “and WE’RE BACK.”
We’ll have a few more minor furlough-imposed breaks the next few weeks, as well as a a vacation or two, but for now, here we are (sounding a little too much like Yogi Berra there).
Anyway, some significant news the last couple days as UW has reportedly received commitment number nine for the Class of 2010 from receiver Tevin Carter of Santee Education Complex in Los Angeles.
At 6-3, 190, he more fits the “bigger receiver” mold that the new coaching staff definitely wants to increase on this roster.
He’s also undeniably fast, running a 10.81 in the 100 meters at the Arcadia Invitational last month (a meet that is one of the more prestigious in southern California). That speed helped account for a rather astounding average of 29.75 yards per catch last season (28-833 according to Scout.com, along with 11 TDs).
According to Scout.com, Carter also had offers from Arizona, Arizona State, WSU, Cal and Oregon.
Carter says he’s a solid commit but also says he plans to take a few trips — which is becoming more and more the norm for guys to commit early yet say they still want to take a few visits. UW’s class right now consists of six in-state players and three from California.
For more proof of his athletic ability, here’s a video of him dunking while playing for the Santee basketball team.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— DE Daniel Te’o-Nesheim finished 10th in the shot at the Pac-10 track championships Saturday, so his track season is now over.
— Here’s an interesting look from The Oregonian at the finances involved in football games staying in hotels the night before home games. The obvious question from some of you is whether these kinds of numbers are similar for UW. We have some stories in the works on issues such as this coming soon that will help to answer a lot of those questions.
All for now.
