Morning links: How the Huskies stack up in early recruiting returns

Recruiting rankings mean next to nothing this time of year, but it’s interesting nonetheless to see how teams are progressing after a number of summer camps and unofficial visits. The Huskies picked up their seventh known recruiting commitment on Monday, from Beaverton (Ore.) offensive tackle Jared Hilbers, UW’s fourth commitment in a 12-day stretch. Chris Petersen and his staff have been busy.

With Hilbers, UW is ranked No. 39 in the Scout.com national rankings for 2015 and No. 65 in the 247sports.com rankings.

Pac-12 programs’ recruiting rankings (per Scout):

13. USC, 8 commitments
21. UCLA, 7
26. Oregon, 9
34. Arizona, 15
36. Arizona State, 11
38. Washington State, 7
39. Washington, 7
47. Stanford, 5
54. Utah, 8
59. California, 7
75. Colorado, 4
89. Oregon State, 5

Again, take those with a grain of salt, particularly this time of year. Some coaching staffs have different timelines for how and when they make scholarship offers, and some recruits take longer than others to decide, of course. As some of you have noted in the comments, it’s curious that the Huskies don’t have any committed recruits on defense at this point — linebacker has to be a top priority for the Class of 2015, right? — but it’s very early. We’re still in the first quarter of a long recruiting game, and while the Huskies have picked up some big gains, let’s reserve judgement until the first Wednesday in February.
