Thursday afternoon links — Steele names Polk, Kearse, Ta’amu, Folk to All-Pac-12 Team

Four Huskies have been named to Phil Steele’s pre-season All-Pac-12 team — running back Chris Polk, receiver Jermaine Kearse, defensive tackle Alameda Ta’amu and kicker Erik Folk.

Steele publishes one of the more popular pre-season magazines each year, and you can find his entire all-conference team here.

As you can see, cornerback Desmond Trufant is on his second team, OT Senio Kelemete and LB Cort Dennison are on his third team and DT Everrette Thompson and CB Quinton Richardson on the fourth team.

Polk and Kearse were also named to Steele’s All-American fourth team.

IN OTHER NEWS. …

— DetNews.com has an update on Lakes OT Zach Banner, quoting him saying he plans to take an official visit this fall to Michigan as well as one already scheduled to Notre Dame.

— ESPN.com has more on the Pac-12’s plans to revamp its officiating, including a quote from UW coach Steve Sarkisian.

— Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott said today he is “extremely disappointed” in the denial of USC’s appeal. One thought here? Sounds like Scott is making it clear he hopes schools in other conferences get treated just as harshly.

Dennis Dodd of CBSSports.com says it’s time for USC to move on while also positing that Oregon is threatening to become the new USC in the Pac-12.

Bryan Fischer of CBSSports.com says USC’s appeal never had a chance.
