Just 10 days left until letter-of-intent signing day, which also means the annual unveiling of the Times’ listing of the top recruits int the state.
First, though, I’ll link a story by our Jayson Jenks on Bellevue linebacker Myles Jack, who is visiting UW this weekend as the only player with a scholarship offer visiting UW this weekend — the other visitor is walk-on WR Ryan Turman, a close friend Jack’s. As the story notes, Jack is considered a commit to UCLA, but UW is hoping to way him with its visit this weekend. He is also scheduled to visit Florida State next weekend. So this could be one in which there is at least some mystery until the Feb. 6 signing day.
Also part of the package is this story on Max Browne.
And the centerpiece of the package is the rankings of in-state players, which includes a listing of where they have committed. Here is the list of Blue Chips, which this year numbers just two — Jack and Browne. And here is the list of red and white chips.
