The Huskies will take the field this afternoon for the last practice of training camp that is open to the media. They will then close ranks for a few days as they close out camp, and then get into a gameweek mode, preparing for San Diego State.

For now, the usual morning links. …

WASHINGTON LINKS. …

— Here’s my story for today’s paper on Derrick Brown and UW’s quarterback position.

— The CoachSark site with pictures of the day.

— GoHuskies.com profiles Drew Schaefer.

— Here’s UW’s team profile from Yahoo.com.

— ESPN ranks UW second behind only USC in its latest Class of 2013 recruiting rankings. Here’s in part what it says about UW:

When Washington went to work on its 2013 class, the Huskies focused on addressing very specific needs. They wanted to add skill-position playmakers. They wanted to load up on talent in the trenches and they wanted to continue adding depth throughout the roster. So far, they have addressed every issue.

Receivers Damore’ea Stringfellow (Moreno Valley, Calif./Rancho Verde) and Darrell Daniels (Oakley, Calif./Freedom) are two of the nation’s top 15 players at their position and will be catching passes from the nation’s No. 2-rated dual-threat quarterback, Troy Williams (Harbor City, Calif./Narbonne).

Four offensive linemen are currently committed, led by center Dane Crane (Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif./Santa Margarita) and tackle Sean Harlow (San Clemente, Calif./San Clemente).

While much of the attention has been focused on Williams, the receivers and offensive linemen, the Huskies have hauled in dynamic defensive linemen. Relatively new to the tackle position, Elijah Qualls (Petaluma, Calif./Casa Grande) has already helped in recruiting other prospects since committing in June.

Jake Locker still fighting questions about his accuracy.
