I was unable to watch the Army All-American Bowl so I can't give a personal scouting report on how Kavario Middleton and Jermaine Kearse played.
I've been looking for anything that gave stats for the game but couldn't find it, and I also couldn't find anything that mentions either of the two. So I'll take the word of those of you who said Kearse apparently had two catches for small gains and that Middleton apparently played some defense. I similarly can't find anything on the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, in which Alameda Ta'amu and Everette Thompson played. Sorry. If anyone has anything on either game, happy to pass it along.
--- There are several reports out there that 6-foot, 175-pound cornerback Adam Long of St. Bernard High in the Los Angeles area had a good visit to UW this weekend and is close to fully commiting to the Huskies but will take a trip to Oregon State next weekend. He also visited UCLA in October.
--- Sounds as if UW's chances of landing defensive back E.J. Woods, a defensive back Encino, Calif., who committed to UCLA before deciding to look around again after the firing of Karl Dorrell, are lessening. Woods told Rivals.com over the weekend that he had a good talk with new UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel and again considers himself a "soft commit'' to UCLA. he said he will likely visit Oregon later this month and then UCLA before making a final decision.
--- As we've mentioned here before, the American Football Coaches Association convention is this week, starting today and running through Wednesday. Could be some coaching rumors, if not outright news, emanating from that gathering. One name that some of you have floated for UW's new defensive is Hawaii DC Greg McMackin, who worked for the Seahawks under Dennis Erickson and may now be available with June Jones apparently moving. However, I've seen several stories that indicate McMackin will go with Jones to SMU.
