So who’s all coming to the LSU game?

A popular question during the live chat today concerned the recruits who will be in Seattle for the LSU game next Saturday.
Scout.com lists at least five players who will be in for the game. They are:
— Offensive guard Nick Rowland of Peoria, Ariz., a four-star recruit also being pursued by most seriously by Cal, Oregon and Stanford;
— Running back Jordon James of Corona, Calif., a four-star recruit who also is listed as planning to visit Notre Dame, UCLA and Arizona. ESPN.com’s Greg Biggins updated James’ status this week.
— Cornerback Demetrius Wright, also of Corona High in Corona, Calif., a four-star recruit who also lists offers from USC, Tennessee and Florida, among others;
— middle linebacker Victor Burnett of Culver City, Calif., a three-star recruit who also lists offers from Nebraska, Oklahoma and Tennessee, among others.
— RB Deontae Cooper of Perris, Calif., rated No. 23 in the country by Scout.com;
— and OT Kody Innes of Scottsdale, Ariz., who also has offers from a number of Pac-10 schools.
Biggins also reported this week that Josh Shaw, a highly-rated DB from Palmdale, Calif., will also visit this week.
It’s also expected that a number of the local players who have already committed to UW will be in attendance, such as O’Dea’s Ben Riva, the Lakes High trio of Darius Waters, Jamal Kearse and Sione Potoae and Auburn’s Chris Young.
Sarkisian earlier this week dismissed any notion that there is much risk to having the recruits in attendance for a game in which the Huskies aren’t favored to win, saying he thought the atmosphere of a big-time game was a good chance “to bring in some kids and show them what our university and our football program is all about.”
