Monday afternoon update — Banner decision coming soon

A few more notes to pass along as we wait for the announcement from Zach Banner of Lakes High.

Mason Kelley will cover it for us — follow him on Twitter at @masonekelley. I will pass along updates on the blog as it happens, as well.

UPDATE, 2:15 — Rivals.com also has live streaming video of the Banner announcement.

Now for a few other notes. …

— Oaks Christian WR Jordan Payton, who reportedly accompanied Shaq Thompson on an unofficial visit to UW this weekend, just Tweeted that he will announce his decision on Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. on ESPNU. Recruiting analysts are calling Payton a UW lean right now. He was a former Cal commit who reopened things after the Huskies hired WR coach Eric Kiesau away from the Bears.

— Thompson, meanwhile, has reportedly set his announcement for 8 a.m. on Wednesday.

Greg Biggins Tweeted a little while ago that WR/RB Kenny Walker of Richmond, Calif., will make an announcement today, likely to UW. Walker took an official visit to UW this weekend and is another who was a commit to Cal but changed his mind after the departure of Kieau.

— Biggins also just Tweeted that Alonzo Williams, a defensive end from Long Beach Poly who visited UW two weeks ago, has reaffirmed an earlier commitment to Texas A&M.

— UW has announced its signing day press conference on Wednesday will come around 2 p.m., throwing out the caveat that it could be delayed if events warrant.
