Friday afternoon links — Te’o-Nesheim in Shrine Game tomorrow

I’ll start with a reminder that Daniel Te’o-Nesheim will play in the East-West Shrine Game tomorrow in Orlando.
Gametime is at noon and it will be broadcast on ESPN2.
Te’o-Nesheim has been reported to be playing well in practices this week, likely improving his draft stock, which is usually projected as somewhere in the late rounds.
Donald Butler will play in the Senior Bowl next week and the two are the only Huskies in any of the post-season All-Star games.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— Doesn’t take long for the focus in recruiting to shift to the next year, and ESPN Rise is getting a head start today releasing its All-Junior Team (meaning, the top prospects for 2011). The offense includes two local players — WR Kasan Williams of Skyline (who attended the Cal basketball game last Saturday) and TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins of Gig Harbor. (Links to all the other teams are included with the one I provided, but I didn’t see any other Washington players listed).
— Pete Fiutak of CollegeFootballNews.com opens his mailbag, including one letter about Jake Locker. And Fiutak isn’t all that high on Locker, writing that if Locker doesn’t get a lot better “he’ll be a bigger, faster Rick Mirer.” Having attended many of the games Mirer started for the Seahawks, I can attest that’s pretty harsh criticism.
— ESPN.com has a good team-by-team look at recruiting in the Pac-10.
— ESPN’s Mark Schlabach also looks into the future and gives a mention of UW in saying that he thinks the power in the Pac-10 is shifting north.
All for now.
