Lagafuiana recommits, a couple other notes

Lead off some afternoon notes with good news for the Huskies as Scout.com is reporting today that DT Lawrence Lagafuiana of Aiea, Hawaii has reaffirmed his commitment to UW. He had visited Hawaii over the weekend and said immediately afterward he was split on UW and Hawaii.
I wrote this entry last week about Lagafuaina, whose decision helps UW in its attempts to continue to get stronger up front.
As I wrote last week, Lagafuiana grew up in the state and has family in the area, one reason he had favored UW.
UW now has 28 solid commitments, according to Scout.com, though with three-four more players still in the decision-making mode.
Speaking of the undecideds, Greg Biggins of ESPN.com wrote today that USC and Miami “could be” the top two for LB Josh Shirley. However, Biggins also quotes Shirley as saying that all four of the schools he visited are still in the running. Shirley visited UW for the USC game. He will make his decision known Wednesday morning. Shirley is also quoted in the story saying the he honestly has “no clue” what he is going to do.
Rivals.com West Coast recruiting analyst Jeremy Crabtree held a chat today in which he spoke about a few prospective UW recruits.
Asked about DT Rickey Heimuli of Salt Lake City, Crabtree wrote that most people close to the situation think he’s going to Utah but that it’s not wise to count out UCLA and the impact that Norm Chow has on Utah-based recruits. There was no mention of UW, which Heimuli visited this weekend.
Of Sean Parker, he said that the player has “completely shut it down” and is not talking to anyone and that “even coaches don’t have a good feeling where he’s going.”
Both are also expected to make decisions on Wednesday, an LOI Day that for the first time in a while figures to hold a lot of real suspense for the Huskies.
