Morning links: Recruiting season reopens in full force

Here we go. With a recruiting dead period of no in-person contact ending Wednesday night, coaches are back on the road and recruits are preparing to head to campuses for official visits. National signing day is 20 days away. Deep breaths, folks.

I have something planned for Friday updating the recruits coming to visit and other targets for UW. Until then, some links:

Chris Petersen with a good Q&A with ESPN.com’s Ted Miller. Here’s what he had to say on recruiting:

When you show them what Washington has to offer academically, the league we play in, for some of these kids, that’s a real benefit. We’ll see when it’s all said and done. We’re really trying to figure out what is best for everybody, the best fit. This is how we’ve been at Boise. It’s all about getting each guy into the right place for them. That’s when the magic happens. If this isn’t the right place for some of these guys, then that’s OK as well. But we’ll get some good players here, without question, in this class. And then we’ll start the process over immediately after signing day. We’ll have a lot longer time to work at it.

Petersen also said the on-field schemes won’t change much, particularly on defense:

This whole system started at Boise when [defensive coordinator] Justin Wilcox was with us. So there’s going to be a lot of carryover with that terminology, with that structure of the defense as well. So in some ways, it’s really pretty nice. It’s going to be as much as the same as you can possibly have it on a brand new staff.
