Friday morning links, notes — Setting up the weekend

It’s the final weekend before letter-of-intent day, which in most years past hasn’t meant all that much for the Huskies, who have often been pretty much done recruiting by now.
But this year looms a little bit different as the Huskies appear to have three official visitors coming, one unofficial, and a few prospective members for the Class of 2011 coming in for an early junior day.
The three official visitors are:
Ricky Heimuli, a defensive tackle from Salt Lake City;
— as Dawgman.com reported Thursday, OT James Atoe from The Dalles, Ore., will also make a visit;
— and as reported today in the Honolulu Advertiser, Kona Schwenke, a DL from Kahuku, Hawaii, will also fit in a brief visit to UW during what looks like a whirlwind of a weekend. The 6-5, 215-pound Schwenke had long been committed to BYU. But this Scout.com story details what went wrong with Schwenke’s commitment to BYU and reports that he will now decide between Notre Dame and UW.
— And Auburn High RB/DB Chris Young will also be at the school for an unofficial visit this weekend. Once this weekend is over, recruiting then hits a dead period through the LOI Day on Wednesday.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— Here’s another item on Donald Butler continuing to impress at the Senior Bowl, noting that he appears to have earned an invite to the NFL Combine as a result (Daniel Te’o-Nesheim has also already been invited).
— SuperPrep.com has this item on the Team USA vs. The World game tomorrow and includes this note on UW commit Michael Hartvigson: “Team USA has a pair of gifted tight ends in Washington commitment Michael Hartvigson (6-6/235) and under the radar Miami, Fla. product Kendall Montgomery (6-6/230). Both players showed soft hands and the ability to gain separation and make catches on the run.”
— The daily Pac-10 links from The Oregonian with more on all that’s brewing at Oregon.
All for now.
