A couple more notes

A few more notes to pass along:
— First, hope you’ll read the updated post below on Chace Stanback. I had personal commitments much of the afternoon and early tonight that kept me away from the computer and the initial post was just something I slapped together real fast. Indications are that it’s pretty unlikely he’ll come to UW due largely to the fact that he would have to walk-on for a season before getting a ride. As I mentioned in the updated post, he took his trip to UW knowing that was the situation, indicating he was pretty interested anyway. But he’s also visited several other schools, including NC State (his family originally hails from North Carolina) so he has some other options likely involving scholarship offers. UW is at the full 13 for next season — a level it reached after the decision that Joel Smith would not return for his fifth season — and that isn’t expected to change now.
— As mentioned previously, UW’s schedule will be completed in the next few days. Indications are that the lone remaining game to be filled won’t be against a really big name opponent, as had been hoped for, as the Huskies had trouble landing some of the opponents they targeted earlier, notably Georgia Tech and Fresno State. The latter was sought after so it could be a homecoming for Quincy Pondexter.
— All of the freshmen are now in town and I plan to get to a workout soon (a couple personal things prevented that happening this week). One of them, Tyreese Breshers, is still sitting out with a shin injury that dates back to last season, but UW coaches have said it isn’t something that should impact his ability to play this season.
Jon Brockman isn’t playing right now, either, while continuing to recover from off-season ankle surgery. However, I’m told he should be able to start playing soon, maybe next week.
Artem Wallace continues to recover well and is on target for a mid-November return.
All for now.
