Sunday night notes

Sorry to be away here for a while as I know some new commits broke but had some other stuff going on most of the day, so I’ll play a little catch up. …
— All the regular recruiting sites have reported that CB Gregory Ducre of Crenshaw High in Los Angeles has committed to UW, having done so during his visit this weekend. He was one of three uncommitted players to visit. Ducre, who also had offers from Arizona State and Colorado, becomes the 27th known player to commit for the Class of 2010. Here are some highlights of Ducre as well as his season stats. He’s potentially the only true CB in the class as Keanon Lowe is likely to be a WR (speaking of Lowe, he made his visit this weekend but has not yet said anything to anyone about how it went).
RealDawg.com also reported that UW has received a commitment from DE Hauoli Jamora, who would be No. 28 for the class, though he hasn’t yet publicly said it himself. Jamora had been committed to BYU, then reopened his recruitment and visited UW this weekend.
— The other uncommitted player visiting this weekend was CB Jeremy Ioane of Honolulu, but he has another visit set next week to Arkansas and was already said to be favoring Boise State, so any commitment news on him is likely to wait a while.


— The news earlier today about Ronnie Fouch prompted questions of how many players UW has on scholarship. I’ll do an updated scholarship chart later, but as for just the actual number, I have it at 64, including Deontae Cooper and also each of the walk-ons who was awarded a scholarship last year and is returning (Greg Chrstine, Brandon Huppert), as well as E.J. Savannah. So basically, everyone who could be on scholarship. They all may not be when the season rolls around (one thing to remember is that that’s when the numbers have to work. Doesn’t matter now if they have 64 on scholarship and sign 30 in February and would theoretically be nine over. When it matters is the fall when all are on campus, and lots can change between now and then).
— Here’s an interesting look at the USC coaching search from the Orange County Register.
— Here’s more on Fouch’s decision to transfer from one of his hometown newspapers.
Rick Neuheisel fired the first verbal shots this week in what will be a fascinating rivalry with Lane Kiffin to watch from afar.
All for now.
