A little bit of news and notes for a Sunday morning. …
— Bryan Fischer continues his coverage of the Pac-12 meetings this weekend with the news that the conference wants to try to play some events in Asia, but likely not football. Those of us with long memories know this is actually something the conference has tried before. For a few years in the 1980s, the conference took part in the Coca-Cola Classic, a regular-season game played every year in Tokyo — here are results. Washington was never one of the participants, however. Also worth recalling is that USC was lined up to play Illinois in Moscow in 1989 in the Glasnost Bowl before it was canceled.
— I missed this earlier, but Greg Biggins Tweeted a couple of days ago that linebacker Michael Hutchings and DB Victor Egu (younger brother of current UW walk-on Ken Egu) are on unofficial visits to UW this weekend. Both are from famed De La Salle High in Concord, Calif., also the alma mater of UW assistant Tosh Lupoi. Hutching is regarded as among the top linebacking prospects in the country for the Class of 2013 while Egu is also an OLB with offers from much of the Pac-12.
— PacificTakes.com has lots more recruiting updates around the conference.
— The Denver Post reports on some of the apparent reasons behind the firing of Dave Logan at Mullen HIgh, the school attended by UW QB signee Cyler Miles as well as former Husky Devin Aguilar (not to mention numerous other players at numerous other schools around the country).

— This Q-and-A with Utah coach Kyle Whittingham includes the news that each Pac-12 school will take one offensive player and one defensive player to the conference’s Media Day July 24 in Burbank, Calif. In the past, teams just took one player. I haven’t heard who UW is taking — maybe Keith Price and Desmond Trufant?
