Headed out to practice here soon, but here are a few more notes and quotes from today's press briefing:
--- Lots of personnel news today, including reports of UW's second and third commitments of the year, which could get lost in the shuffle on a day like this. Scout.com and RealDawg. com are each reporting a commitment from cornerback Kenneth Pinkard of Texas while RealDawg is also reporting one from cornerback Aaron Grymes of West Seattle. Grymes was the offensive MVP of the Metro League last season.
--- Jake Locker said he worked as a counselor this summer at the Air 7 Camp with Steve Clarkson this summer. He said he worked a little on his footwork but as he has said earlier, his main thing has been learning the playbook so he can gain more confidence in where he is going with the ball, which he thinks will lead to more accuracy.
--- E.J. Savannah has been seen outside the media work room area having a discussion with UW coach Tyrone Willingham. Senio Kelemete has also been seen on campus today. As Willingham said earlier, these things could change in a day, so we'll see. But as Willingham noted, Savannah has multiple issues, academic, injury and otherwise, to make it back.
--- The Huskies look to be tighter than ever with media access this year. Three practices will be closed completely to the media this year --- all within the last nine days before the Oregon game --- without even the usual first 25 minutes of availability. At the moment, there is also just one practice open to the media, that coming today. The rest will be limited to 25 minutes.
