Huskies hitting the field on what could be a big recruiting day

The Huskies are just about to step on the field for their first of two practices today, so I’ll keep this first entry short as I head up there.
Obviously, however, the big story today could be off the field as Gig Harbor tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins — along with Skyline WR Kasen Williams, generally regarded as the top recruit in the state — is set to make his announcement at 6:30 p.m.
Conventional wisdom has it that he’s leaning toward UW, having taken three visits to Washington in the past week. Even BurntOrangeNation is writing today that he appears headed to UW.
He would be a big get for UW not just from the practical standpoint of adding a highly-touted player at a position that suddenly is shy of depth with the Kavario Middleton dismissal, but also in terms of perception and keeping the top recruits at home. Williams is expected to make his decision Aug. 27, so this could be a big couple weeks recruiting for Washington.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
I’ll pass along a few quick links:
— Here’s the schedule for today, showing a second practice tonight at 6:45.
— GoHuskies.com has a report on Picture Day with lots of pics of the new uniforms.
— Times columnist Bud Withers’ Pac-10 previews today hits UCLA.
— ESPN.com’s Ted Miller nicely rounds up the weekend scrimmages in the Pac-10.
— Interesting story out of Utah comparing the experiences of Jake Heaps, who appears to be winning the QB QB job so far, and Drew Miller, a Lakes High grad who became the first true frosh to start at that position for BYU in 1997. Drew Miller is the son of Lakes coach Dave Miller.
More later from practice.
