Thursday morning links — Steele lauds Williams, Seferian-Jenkins

It’s no secret that Kasen Williams and Austin Seferian-Jenkins were key gets for the Huskies for the Class of 2011.

But football analyst Phil Steele shows again just how vital those two can be in this rating he released today of the top incoming receivers and tight ends in the country.

Steele lists Williams as the No. 8 receiver and Seferian-Jenkins as the No. 1 tight end.

Seferian-Jenkins will enroll at UW next week and take part in spring practice beginning Tuesday, hoping to help put an end to Washington’s tight end problems of last season. The addition of Seferian-Jenkins and the return of Michael Hartvigson from an injury redshirt season should help make tight end a vastly improved position for UW in 2011.

Williams, meanwhile, is finishinig up his senior year at Skyline High and has the No. 1 high jump in the state so far at six feet, nine inches (and note fellow UW signee Danny Shelton is second in the shot put).
