- Speaking of Scott Eklund, read his summary of both commitments and other recruiting updates on Dawgman.com.
- Also on the recruiting front, local 5 star OLB Sav’ell Smalls released a new top 6 that included Washington. It’s notable because in a previous list he had seemingly removed the Huskies from contention, but now they’re firmly back in it.
