Monday afternoon news and notes

First, a housekeeping item, as many of you have asked our plans for covering the Austin Seferian-Jenkins announcement tonight.
Mason Kelley of our staff will cover it, and post it on the Times’ high school sports blog as well as his Twitter account. I will also post links what he has about it as quickly as I can on this site (I’m otherwise staying up here to cover UW’s practice tonight).
Lots of rumors, all seeming to indicate good news for UW, but nothing subtantive yet, and there really won’t be until he says whatever he says tonight.
IN OTHER NEWS. …
— In other recruiting news, ESPN.com’s Greg Biggins wrote on his Insider page that Brett Hundley will visit UW the weekend of Aug., 28, then potentially make a decision shortly after (though possibly delaying until later if he still can’t make up his mind and taking official visits in the fall). His choices remain UW and UCLA and he says again that neither is in the lead.
— ESPN.com’s Ivan Maisel rates Jake Locker second on his list of Heisman favorites for this season.
Kavario Middleton may not be a Husky anymore, but he’s on the watch list for the John Mackey Award, given each year to the top tight end in the country. It’s almost too easy to make fun of that one, so I’ll link to this note from Ted Miller, who says the committee kind of botched it on another players on that list, as well. By the way, don’t be surprised to hear news of Middleton’s next move soon (and I guess he posted on his Facebook page that he’s headed to Nebraska, a rumor that had been making the rounds. If so, he’ll reunite with UW next season when the Huskies travel to Lincoln on Sept. 17. He would have to sit out this year so he wouldn’t play in the game here on Sept. 18).
— The Oregonian wraps up lots of links around the conference.
— FanHouse.com lists the UW-Nebraska game as a key one to watch in the Pac-10 early on.
All for now.
