Saturday update — Another new Husky?

A couple of quick notes to pass along. …

— First, UW is off the field following its Saturday practice, It was the fifth of the bowl season and similar to the others that have come before it, with lots of work with the younger players. UW is not yet doing specific gameplanning for Boise State. That will start on Thursday when the team returns to a regular schedule. UW will practice again Sunday morning and then will be off until Thursday, when it will then practice daily until the Dec. 22 Vegas Bowl against Boise State.

— We did not talk to UW coach Steve Sarkisian, so no news items from him. However, some defensive players and defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox spoke to the media and I will have some of that later. Wilcox spoke for 10 minutes or so on a variety of topics. He was asked about the fact his name has been listed as a possible candidate for some jobs — though there has never been a report linking him specifically to any one job. He said he fully expects to be back at UW next season, answering “sure” when asked directly at one point if he would return to UW in 2013. He laughed and then said he planned to stay at UW “until you run me out of here.”

— There also are reports that UW has gotten a commitment from linebacker Azeem Victor of Pomona, Calif. Both Rivals.com and Scout.com are reporting that he has committed. He is rated two stars by Scout,com and three stars by Rivals.com. He had earlier been reported as committed to San Diego State but decommitted and considered other options. He is not one of the players on a visit to UW this weekend, instead reportedly scheduled for a visit in January. Victor would be the 20th known commit for the Huskies. Here are some of his stats from MaxPreps. And here is a link to some highlights.
