Wednesday afternoon notes — Dozier to visit UW this weekend

A few notes to pass along before heading out to the Seattle Sports Star of the Year banquet. …

— As I Tweeted earlier, Cedric Dozier of Lakes High will be taking an official visit to UW this weekend. UW coach Steve Sarkisian visited Lakes High earlier today talking to Dozier, and the Huskies are again recruiting him as a receiver. This is not confirmed by anyone, but putting two and two together, it sounds as if a spot at WR may have opened up in UW’s class with Michael Rector apparently headed to Stanford.

Dozier is said to be heavily interested in exploring UW, especially now that Eric Kiesau is on the staff and the Huskies will let him come in as a receiver. It was Kiesau who recruited Dozier at Cal, the school to which Dozier has been committed to since October. Dozier has made it clear he wants a chance to play WR in college, and UW previously had recruited him as a defensive back. Dozier also visited WSU last weekend so this looms as a three-team race between UW, WSU and Cal.

Dozier was one of five Seattle Times Blue Chip picks for 2012.

— This was also much-Tweeted earlier, but Scout.com reported today that Shaq Thompson said that he might delay making a decision past the Feb. 1 signing day. The story says: “at this point, he says he does not plan to announce a decision on Signing Day.” He says he “maintains his commitment to Cal” but that he also is considering all options and that at the moment that UW is tied with UCLA and Cal with Oregon “running fourth.” The story also notes that Thompson has taken all of his official visits so any other visits he would take would be unofficial.

— Lots of good recruiting nuggets here from Greg Biggins (via Ted Miller’s blog).

— San Diego State, UW’s first opponent next season, has announced that three Pac-12 transfers — Oregon State QB Ryan Katz, USC WR Brice Butler and USC RB Dillon Baxter — have officially enrolled. Katz and Butler are eligible immediately as the story explains.

— ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay hasn’t been all that impressed by Chris Polk at the Senior Bowl.

— SI.com’s Tony Pauline notes that Senio Kelemete spent the day at guard and “was effective” and that Alameda Ta’amu continued to play well.

All for now.
