Thursday links — Recruiting stuff, and more
College football is hitting the home stretch of recruiting. Many/most coaches are still on the road today, but many/most will begin returning soon to host one last weekend of visits before a quiet period begins Sunday and then a dead period Monday leading into the beginning of the letter-of-intent signing period on Wednesday.
UW is still generally listed as having just three official visitors — twins Tyree and Tyrell Robinnson of San Diego, who also play basketball (Rivals.com has some insight on the battle for the Robinson Twins here), and linebacker Keishawn Bierria. But don’t be surprised to see more visitors added — and the Huskies are also expected to have a few already committed players who have also already taken official visits up this weekend to take a last unofficial visit.
