Sunday links — Williams wins another title and Nebraska loses a QB

We’ll lead off an abbeviated set of Sunday links with what is probably old news to many of you, but worth passing along — UW signee Kasen Williams won his third track and field state title on Saturday, taking the long jump in 24 feet, 5.25 inches.

Here’s the story with details.

That ends the high school career for Williams, and it’s one of the better ones in state history as he won five state track titles, helped Skyline to three straight state football titles, and also helped lead the Skyline boys basketball team to the state tournament as a junior.

Now he begins preparation for his career at UW as he’ll join the rest of the freshman in the summer LEAP (details here from two years ago).

IN OTHER NEWS. …

— When UW travels to Nebraska Sept. 17, it will face a Cornhusker team suddenly a little thin at quarterback after Cody Green made the surprising decision this week to transfer.

— Interesting stuff here from the National Football Post on what the Titans plan to do to help Jake Locker’s accuracy.

— Sounds like Caesar Rayford had a good game, but his Utah team lost to Iowa in Arena Football League action Friday night.

— This is an Insider story, but ESPN.com’s Greg Biggins reports that Tacoma Baptist OL Walker Williams, who also has an offer from UW, will visit UCLA in June and Wisconsin in October, indicating this is another recruitment that may take a while. Here’s what Williams said:

“Recruiting is going well for me right now. I currently have offers from Washington, Eastern Washington, UCLA, Oregon State, Colorado, Utah and Wisconsin. I’m taking a visit to UCLA June 18 and I set an official visit to Wisconsin (Oct. 1) when they play Nebraska. I’ve already been to Washington a few times and I’m probably going to camp with them. I’ll also be going to the Nike camp at Oregon next weekend as well but I’m not sure about the rest of my summer plans or who else I’ll visit.”

All for now.
