Early practice notes — Aug. 13

Practice has begun here under threatening skies — though so far, it has stayed dry.
Here’s what it looked like just as practice got underway.

In personnel news, Dominique Gaisie was still not present amid rumblings that phone calls were being made up until the time practic began attempting to sort out his situation with the NCAA Clearinghouse. We may learn more later from Steve Sarkisian.
TE Kavario Middleton, who missed yesterday’s practice for personal reasons, was back, and DT Cameron Elisara (quad) and Nate Williams (knee), who missed some practice time Wednesday due to injuries, were also back on the field.
Freshman DT Chris Robinson, meanwhile, arrived on crutches, apparently having had the surgery Sarkisian had said earlier in the week was planned.
Among the visitors to practice today was former UW DT Dan Milsten, who said he is living and working in the area, though not involved in football at the moment. Milsten earned a small measure of fame a few years ago when he was mentioned in the credits of John Grisham’s book “Playing For Pizza.” Here’s a story I wrote about all of that a few years ago.
In other notes. …
— Someone asked why there are two sets of hashmarks on the field. The NFL hashmarks are apparently on there because the Seahawks are holding a few practices here, including next Tuesday.
— Missed this the other day, but here’s a column from a southern California writer comparing Sarkisian and Pete Carroll.
Daniel Te’o-Nesheim has been named to the watch list for the Bednarik Award, given annually to the top defensive player in the nation.
— LSU plans to hold a little scrimmage on Saturday.
More later after practice has concluded.
