Friday morning links, notes

Friday didn’t exactly break how a UW recruiter might draw it up, wind blowing and rain falling throughout the region.
But the reality is that while this is a big recruiting weekend for the Huskies — as many as 15 players expected — most are already committed. Three visitors are uncommitted, listed by Scout.com as CB Jeremy Ioane of Honolulu, CB Gregory Ducre of Los Angeles, and DE Hauoli Jamora of Kahuku, Hawaii.
The rest of the visitors include committed players such as Nick Montana and Erik Kohler of Oaks Christian and Jamaal Kearse, Darius Waters and Sione Potoae of Lakes.
There seems little drama with any of the committed players other than possibly WR/DB Keanon Lowe of Jesuit High in Portland. There had been rumors he might be softening a bit and considering Oregon, and he said in a recent inteview with ESPN’s Greg Biggins that he might still take a visit to Oregon.
Of the three uncommitted players visiting this weekend,. Ducre might be the closest to committing as he is not listed by Scout.com as having any other visits set. The other two each have one more visit set.
I wrote this story today looking at UW’s recruiting to date that includes a list of all the generally acknowledged commits.
UW has 26 commits but with four enrolling early and at least one enrolling late, that leaves room for at least four more to be at the maximum number of 25 initial enrollees in 2010.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— Here’s one Jim Moore opinion even Husky fans can agree with, as he’s wishing for the death penalty for USC.
— Today is the deadline to declare for the NFL Draft and two more Pac-10 players have announced they are going, neither a surprise — Arizona TE Rob Gronkowski and Stanford RB Toby Gerhart (who was listed as a senior but had a year of eligibility remaining).
— Sniffing around at the basketball game last night and the word seemed to be that so far, the Huskies don’t appear likely to lose any assistants or other staffers to the Seahawks (or anywhere else, for that matter).
— OSU coach Mike Riley admitted last night that USC contacted him but said he just couldn’t leave the Beavers.
All for now.
