It looks now as if there will not be any recruiting news for UW tonight. While there had been earlier reports that the Robinson twins might announce a decision tonight, each has since said on their Twitter pages that the announce will instead come tomorrow. Below is the Twitter of Tyrell Robinson announcing their announcement:

So it looks like the drama on that one will go another day, as it apparently will for every other uncommitted player still considering UW. All are already scheduled to make final decisions/announcements tomorrow.
That includes defensive end Daeshon Hall. The Dallas Morning News notes that a couple of recruiting analysts predict Hall will choose Texas A&M tomorrow. A few others, though, have said UW. As the story notes, Hall will announce at 8:30 a.m. Seattle time.
Another commitment that will happen tomorrow is that of DT Eddie Vanderdoes of Auburn, Calif. The Sacramento Bee looks at his winding recruiting road.
In one commitment that did happen tonight, defensive end Kylie Fitts of Redlands (Calif.) East Valley chose UCLA:

Fitts is the player who had been committed to USC but then was not allowed to enroll early, as planned, when the Trojans ran short of open scholarships. He then re-opened his recruitment, and mentioned UW as a school he would consider, having visited Washington in November. But tonight he chose UCLA, serving as one pretty direct example of the sanctions having an impact on USC’s recruiting.
