Wednesday lunchtime links — analyst gives UW class high marks

As might be expected this time of year, recruiting news tops the docket. …
— The latest recruiting analyst to give some raves to UW’s class is Randy Taylor, who is the Top recruiting expert and Director of the National Collegiate Scouting Association’s Recruiting 360. In a press release today, Taylor was quoted as saying that the five classes that excite him the most are: “Florida, who may have the best class ever based on the talent level of their committed players on paper; Washington who may be in the top 10 to 15 classes in the end; Stanford and BYU, who are going to sign top 25 classes even with their academic restrictions and traditional campus lifestyles; and Texas A&M who is putting together a top 20 class even though they have to compete with Texas, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State in their home state.”
Ferd Lewis of the Honolulu Advertiser wrote today about the increasing recruiting presence of UW in Hawaii.
— Here’s a little story on UW commits John Timu and Princeton Fuiamono.
— This story on Michigan’s recruiting efforts notes how safety Sean Parker remains one of the last three players the school hopes to sign. Parker is also still considering UW and will announce on signing day. The story notes coaches of all the schools he has left on his list were expected to visit this week.
— Sounds like Donald Butler continues to play well in the practices at the Senior Bowl. This exhaustive overview from NFLDraftScout.com mentions Butler, noting that “Washington’s Donald Butler stood out as a run-stuffing middle linebacker teams usually look for late in the draft. He attacked run plays from inside-out, finding his way to get to the ball carrier.”
— Lots of Pac-10-related links from Ken Goe at The Oregonian.
All for now.
