Jake Locker Day in Ferndale, and more recruiting rumblings

Jake Locker’s been wined and dined in New York and highlighed on every entity ESPN offers.
Now comes a more down-home honor for the UW QB as Ferndale Mayor Gary Jensen has announced that July 24 will be Jake Locker Day in Ferndale.
As part of the ceremoney, Locker (and apparently some other UW football players) will ride a Fire District 7 fire truck through the Old Settlers Parade in Ferndale, beginning at 11 a.m.

IN OTHER NEWS. …
— ESPN.com’s Greg Biggins has some updates on UW recruiting in his Insider Recruiting blog. Specifically, Biggins says that he thinkks Josh Shirley could end up at UW and that Shirley apparently doesn’t intend to head back to UCLA, feeling that the punishment he received didn’t fit the crime (details here, if you need reminding). Biggins also writes that “it wouldn’t be surprising to see Shaquille Richardson end up there as well.” Like Shirley, Richardson — a cornerback — seriously considered UW (taking an official visit) before signing with UCLA.
— Biggins also updates Brett Hundley’s situation and says that the “if there were a front runner right now it would appear to be Washington.” He says Hundley is raving about his trip to UW and has become tight with Locker. He writes that Hundley could make a decision in the coming days and that if so, it would be surprising to see him go anywhere other than UW or UCLA. But he says if Hundley decides to wait and take official visits in the fall then “all bets are off.” The Chandler, Ariz., QB is the top signal-caller on UW’s list for the Class of 2011.
— Here are the interviews of UW assistants Nick Holt and Joel Thomas on KJR-AM today.
— Locker has also been named to the watch list for the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award.
— The LA Times has more on some of the violations at USC.
— Here are some details on the QB reunion being planned at BYU to coincide with the return of Steve Sarkisian with the Huskies on Sept. 4.
All for now.
