Friday live chat at noon — and a few links

First off, I’ll hold a live chat at noon today.

Until then, a few  links….

— Here’s my story for the Friday paper wrapping up the news of Thursday.

— As  that story notes, the big name visiting this weekend is middle linebacker Reuben Foster of Auburn, Ala.  Here’s a story from NOLA.com looking at where his recruitment stands.

— And as this story from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution notes, the Huskies are trying to sway Foster  by also recruiting two of his close friends, offensive tackle Maurice Swain and defensive end Joe Sanders.

— Scout/Dawgman.com now lists UW as having 11 visitors this weekend. Six are already committed to UW — Cameron Van  Winkle, Azeem Victor, David Ajamu, Andrew Kirkland, Andrew Basham and Lavon Coleman. Foster, Swain and Sanders are three of the others, joined also by another player from the south, offensive tackle Joshua Outlaw of Lithonia, Ga. The other visitor is RB Ralph Kinne of Shelton, a prospective walk-on.

— This is an Insider story, but ESPN also details the potential Foster/Swain/Sanders package deal, quoting Sanders saying the three talked about playing in college together at a basketball game two weeks ago.

—Glancing at UW’s visit list for this weekend, it looks like there may not be any commits out of this weekend.  Six, as noted, are already committed. The other four are all taking other trips and expected to not make decisions for a while yet.

— Scout.com reports that OL  Brayden Kearsley of Beaverton, Ore., who is considering Oregon State, UW, BYU and Arkansas, will announce his decision Jan. 23. Oregon  State is regarded as the leader.

— This is also an Insider story as HuskyNation interviews Marques Tuiasosopo.

— Some interesting numbers here as ESPN.com’s Pac-12 blog breaks down the records of the teams in the North this year.

Ted Miller also with some good stuff analyzing the schedules that were released Thursday.

— SBNation looks at UW’s recruiting.

Jon Wilner ranks UW as having the No. 6 non-conference schedule in the Pac-12 in 2013.

Bud Withers also has some thoughts on Pac-12 schedules.

— CBSSports.com rates the 10 best games  in the Pac-12 next year, with a couple of UW contests mentioned.

Mel Kiper rates Desmond Trufant as the No. 3 cornerback available for the NFL  Draft.
