Tuesday afternoon links — USC loses top recruit, and Joe Montana speaks

A little bit of Pac-10 news this afternoon as USC has confirmed it has released one of its top 2010 recruits, OL Seantrel Henderson, from his letter-of-intent, making him free to go anywhere and be immediately eligible.
This is the most significant personnel departure that has resulted from the sanctions levied against the school a few weeks ago and while it may be tempting for fans of other schools to hope this is the tip of the iceberg, it’s worth noting that Henderson’s recruitment was kind of a circus all along so not sure how indicitave of he is of the general feeling of other USC recruits. Still, a big loss.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller lists six players who just missed his rating of the top 25 players in the Pac-10 and the first two are UW’s Chris Polk and Jermaine Kearse.
— Good interview today in the San Francisco Chronicle with Joe Montana, father of UW QB Nick Montana (maybe someday I’ll just assume everyone knows the connections but figure it’s still worth pointing out for a little while), the main news being that he has again moved to the Bay Area.
Phil Steele finally got to the Pac-10 in his review of the last decade, and no surprise that UW didn’t get mentioned much. A little of a surprise, however, to see that WSU was still fifth despite the woes of the last few seasons.
— Here’s an incredibly thorough preview of the Huskies from the WSU Football Blog (and one that UW fans would have to admit is pretty darn fair given its origin).
— The SBRForum lists the Huskies at plus-600 to win the Pac-10 this year, actually tied for the third-lowest odds other than Oregon and Oregon State (with USC ineligible).
— Some interesting quotes in this story regarding Arizona State’s football team this season from assistant coach Greg Burns, who once worked alongside Steve Sarkisian and Nick Holt as an assistant at USC.
— In case you’ve forgotten that Pete Carroll has a new book coming out, he’s helpfully sending out reminders every five minutes or so on his Twitter page.
All for now.
