For a Friday morning:
--- First is our story today with more on the commitment of Bradly Roussel. Hope this story answers the question of how a kid from Louisiana ended up comitting to UW --- and yes, to answer a question, he is the first commit from down south since Charles Frederick in 2001. As it was explained to me, Roussel knew once he wasn't getting offered by LSU he began looking around, and when UW showed a lot of interest, he got interested in UW and liked what he saw. One thing he told me that didn't make it in the story is that he was impressed by the quality of UW's incoming defensive tackles and figured that will make life easier as an LB. He is UW's 23rd commit but with Chris Polk enrolling early, I think UW has at least three scholarships left to give.
--- I was remiss yesterday in not linking our feature on UW recruit Johri Fogerson, who was named as our State Player of the Year. Also included in that package was our All-State Team that includes nine players who have committed to UW.
--- Derek Johnson's web site has an interesting interview with former Husky Jason Chorak.
NEUHEISEL TO UCLA? The LA Daily News is reporting today that Rick Neuheisel will interview for the vacancy at UCLA. Maybe he'll finally get the job he wanted so badly when he was here in 2002 (and don't kid yourselves on that, either --- he wanted to leave UW for the Bruins then but it didn't work out and the Bruins hired Karl Dorrell instead). UCLA plays at UW next Nov. 15 in what would be his first return to Husky Stadium should he get this job. It's not a huge surprise that he's getting an interview as I've heard that the same group of alums who were so pushing for him in 2002 are pushing for him again this time.
REMINDER --- Also, please don't cut-and-paste full stories from other sites of any kind. You can paraphrase and link to it, but no full texts please. Thanks.
