UW QB Jake Locker was named to The Sporting News Freshman All-American second team today.
SOME OTHER NOTES:
--- A few of you asked about the health status of Donald Butler and Jason Wells. UW coach Tyrone Willingham said Wednesday that their status for the spring remains uncertain, Wells more than Butler. Wells has had surgery while it sounds unclear if Butler will have surgery to repair the knee injury that held him out the last five games of the season, but sounds like it could be a possibility (sorry for the vagueness, but that's what I got). But sounds as if the rest of the team avoided major injury this year and most everyone else should be ready for the spring. The off-season will also allow Locker to fully recover from what was a rough season for him at times. Other than the neck, his main injury was the hit he took to his left shoulder against Stanford.
--- Some recruits are on campus already for what is UW's biggest recruiting weekend of the year with 13 expected in. Eight of the players have already committed. As I mentioned yesterday, UW coaches wanted as many players to come together this weekend to begin the bonding process with this class.
--- Here's the latest I could find on E.J. Woods, a defensive back commit to UCLA who had said he might considering other schools, including UW, with the firing of Karl Dorrell. In the story, published today on ESPN.com, Woods says he is still committed to UCLA and is excited about the prospect of some of the big names he has heard as possible replacements. But he also says in the story he plans on taking all of his visits, including to UW.
