Recruiting chat tomorrow at noon

Last week’s recruiting chat with myself and preps writer Mason Kelley proved popular enough that we are forced happy to do another one tomorrow (Tuesday). So chat we will about all things recruiting at noon. You can find it here on the football blog or on the high school blog. I’ll try to answer UW-related questions and Mason will handle broader recruiting issues.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— Scout.com reports that OT James Atoe of The Dalles, Ore., has committed to UW, though he could delay enrollment and become a member of the Class of 2011 if needed to make the numbers work. Atoe visited this weekend. The 6-7, 325-pounder is regarded as something of a project, moreso than the other six OLs UW is expected to sign in this class. With seven in the fold, this will be UW’s largest group of OLs in one recruiting class this decade (and likely a lot longer though that was as far as I got in looking it up). His commitment gives UW 29.
— DT Lawrence Lagafuaina also reaffirmed his commitment to UW today to the Honolulu Advertiser which reported that he was “sticking with Washington despite liking his visit to Hawaii” this weekend. He also just recently again took his SAT hoping for a higher score to ensure his eligibility next fall.
— ESPN.com has a breakdown of all the top uncommitted players in the country in this signing day preview, including two big ones still considering UW — DT Ricky Heimuli of Salt Lake City and S Sean Parker of Narbonne High in Harbor City, Calif. Author JC Shurburtt writes that he projects Heimuli to go to Utah but that his confidence level in that is low, and that Parker will go to USC with his confidence level in that pick at medium. He also calls Rick Neuheisel the best closer among recruiters in the Pac-10, something I’d imagine some UW fans with long memories (Hugh Millen, for one) may question.
— UWTV will show the ’92 Nebraska at UW game as part of its Husky Classics series. Just in case you don’t know what happened, I won’t tell you, though doubt it would be a Husky Classic if UW didn’t emerge victorious.
All for now.
