Post-signing day links

It’s one day when I guess you can say the ink is literally now dry on the events of the proceeding day. So a bevy of links on the signing day that was. …

— Here’s my story wrapping up UW’s efforts on signing day.

— Times columnist Jerry Brewer says the local recruiting losses won’t define UW’s class.

— Here’s my review of what was an especially strong recruiting season up and down the Pac-12.

— Here’s the report from as well as the press release on all the signees which also includes links to Steve Sarkisian’s press conference and the virtual highlights.

— The UW Daily has a nice video recap of signing day.

— The Denver Posts reports on Cyler Miles’ decision to stick with UW.

— Here’s the Sacramento Bee’s report on Shaq Thompson’s signing (the Bee also has a good list of every player in its area who signed).

— Thompson is sixth on Phil Steele’s list of top 100 recruits and where they are headed.

— Some good stuff from the Modesto Bee on Pio Vatuvei’s last-minute decision to switch to UW.

— Interesting that if you do a search for “Taylor Hindy” this story from five days ago shows up reporting he had committed to UW. Somehow that seemed to escape notice up here. Here’s a little scouting report on Hindy and a few other Los Angeles-area players who signed with UW and elsewhere.

— Some good pictures of Jeff Lindquist’s signing.

Tairen Owens, who was the first commit for UW in this class and then switched to UCLA after Demetrice Martin left, ended up not signing with the Bruins. This story says he is now looking at Arizona State and San Diego State.

— UW remains 22nd nationally and fifth in Pac-12 in rankings.

— Lots of interviews with the likes of Thompson and Jaydon Mickens available via KJR-AM’s podcast.

Mason Kelley breaks down where all of Washington’s high school players signed on Wednesday.

— has good stuff on Jordan Payton’s wild recruiting ride, quoting his coach, Bill Redell, as saying that UCLA might just have been where he wanted to be all along.

— examines how Stanford really cleaned up, especially on the offensive line.

—’s Ted Miller with some post-signing day notes, including news of the two main uncommitted players on the West Coast (neither considering UW).

— ESPN also looks at how well Pac-12 schools met their recruiting needs.

— Lots of mention of UW in this story on the importance of hiring good assistants who can recruit.

Jon Wilner with lots of thoughts on signing day and what it meant for the Pac-12.

— Cal coach Jeff Tedford talked about the loss of Tosh Lupoi and what it meant to the Bears’ recruiting class.

Christian Caple with a lot of other good links around the Pac-12.

— Former Husky Reggie Williams included on this list of the top 10 receiver recruits of the last 20 years.

— It’s never too late to start thinking about 2013 — here’s a new interview with Skyline QB Max Browne, the top recruit in the state for next year.

— The Wall Street Journal notes that 69 percent of NFL draftees are three star recruits or lower. But it’s also worth remembering there are simply a lot fewer four- and five-star recruits to begin with, so with so many players on NFL rosters, seems somewhat inevitable, as well, that the numbers might swing that way a little bit.

— Finally, another reminder of our chat today at 1 p.m. wrapping up signing day.
