Tuesday links and notes

Getting in the spirit of NBC’s Olympic coverage by delaying the links a little today. …

— Many of you have already noticed that ESPN has debuted the latest in its Recruiting Nation web sites, this one devoted to UW and titled, appropriately enough, HuskyNation. And as you can see, providing most of the content for the site is former Seattle Times reporter Mason Kelley. As is the case with all of the separate Recruiting Nation sites, this one is part of ESPN’s Insider package. And undoubtedly, we will be referring to it often here.

— For those asking on the latest about Penn State transfer Ryan Nowicki, who reportedly visited UW last week, there doesn’t appear to be anything definitive yet. A Tweet from Richard Obert of the Arizona Republic earlier today said Nowicki will decide “mid-week” among UW, Illionis and Arizona State.

— As far as the other Penn State transfer who has been linked with UW, linebacker Khairi Fortt, reports that he is headed to Cal. A few others said nothing is definitive yet but that his choices are either staying at Penn State or going to Cal.

— LSU is 1, USC 2, Oregon 5, Stanford 21 and Utah 24 in the Top 25 poll of CBSSports.com.

— No UW players on CBSSports.com’s pre-season All-Pac-12 team, though lots of Huskies listed in those who were considered.

— ESPN.com’s Pac-12 blog offers a conference recruiting roundup as well as a list of dates when conference schools open camp (basically, all from Aug. 2-6).

— Via RotoWorld.com, Mike Lombardi of the NFL Network is reporting that Jake Locker could be the favorite to win the Titans’ QB battle with former Seahawk Matt Hasselbeck. Tennessee will be in Seattle for an exhibition game against the Seahawks on Aug. 11.

— This Eagles practice report features a picture of Chris Polk.

— Pacific Takes continues its countdown of the best games in the Pac-12 this season with games 31-40, including a couple of UW mentions.
