Monday links — Recruiting update, Locker aftermath and more

Time to catch up on some links and notes from the last day …

— Here’s my main story for the Monday paper, taking an overall look at Washington’s recruiting efforts for the Class of 2012. Probably not much the hardcore fans don’t know, I realize, but hopefully an update for the broader newspaper audience. I’ll have some leftover notes from this story to pass along on the blog later.

Jake Locker came off the bench for the Titans yesterday and threw for 282 yards, though a late comeback effort came up just short. Here’s the report from The Tennessean while the Chattanooga Times says Locker’s effort hints at a bright future.

Mason Foster had his first career interception, but that didn’t help much to prevent Tampa Bay from getting waxed by Jacksonville.

Donald Butler had two tackles in San Diego’s easy win over Buffalo.

Rick Hill, the Alamo Bowl’s VP of Marketing and Communications, writes that Robert Griffin III’s Heisman win has sent interest in the game to another level.

— A San Antonio newsman says Griffin Heisman win is a gift to the city.

— The Alamo Bowl also put together this string of Tweets about the game.

— UW’s official site passed along this brief update on the new track facility.

— The LA Times notes that winning the Heisman is often a poor predictor of NFL success.

— Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott is headed to China today to explore playing opportunities in that country, including reportedly the Notre Dame-China game in 2012. UW AD Scott Woodward is quoted in The New York Tiimes’ story on this topic. And here’s the official Pac-12 release.

Ted Miller takes an early look at Pac-12 2012 Heisman candidates, and mentions Chris Polk (assuming he stays).
