- Mike Vorel of the Seattle Times has confirmed that ex-Stanford QB K.J Costello will be on campus today visiting the University as he decides where to transfer. Costello was 2nd team all Pac-12 as a sophomore and was viewed as a potential 1st round pick if he put up similar results in 2019. Unfortunately he struggled with injuries and lost his job to Davis Mills leading him to seek a transfer.
- Stewart Mandel at The Athletic gave the Huskies an A- grade for their hire of Jimmy Lake to replace Chris Petersen.
- 3-star defensive back out of Lake Stevens, Kasen Kinchen committed to a PWO offer with the Huskies. He had early scholarship offers from Cal and Oregon but didn’t commit while there was time and decided to become a walk-on at UW rather than head to a Hawai’i or Utah State.
- 3-star offensive lineman Logan Bruce also from Lake Stevens joined UW as a PWO over offers from Air Force and several FCS schools.
- 2-star defensive end Bradley McGannon from Yelm, WA also committed to a PWO offer from the Dawgs.
- A 6’3 2021 DB out of California will be on campus this week for an unofficial visit

Isaiah Thomas on losing his close friend, Kobe Bryant: "I just had talked to him last week. I got hurt. 2017, I lose my sister; 2019, I lose one of my best friends in Nipsey Hussle; and then to lose a mentor of mine, that’s bigger than basketball. That shit hurts."— Fred Katz (@FredKatz) January 27, 2020
