The Morning Haul 4/12

Today marks the end of the first full week of April: a month that, in its 12 days, has brought more recruiting news that the rest of the year has combined. It seems as thought it is slowing down, though. With basketball behind us, football is beginning to take over, as you can see from the past few posts and links. The trend continues today!

ESPN bloggers Kevin Gemmell and Ted Miller both “sell” Washington winning the Pac-12 North, but think it can win nine or 10 games.

We should have a good idea of things by mid-October. The Huskies should be 4-0 when they visit Stanford on Oct. 5. If they were somehow to win that game and improve to 5-0, Oregon’s visit the next weekend to renovated Husky Stadium might be the biggest thing in Montlake since … 1991.

Nigel Williams-Goss continues to rack up the awards, this time he has been named a Max Preps All-American.

The 6-3, 185-pound standout, who signed with Washington, starred in the McDonald’s All-American game last week (video highlights above) and will play in the Jordan Brand Classic on Friday. This week Max Preps selected him a first-team All-American. Williams-Goss is one of two Pac-12 players on the squad joining Aaron Gordon, who is attending Arizona.

Bob Condotta tells us about Alabama-transfer Travell Dixon, who is trying to fill Desmond Trufant’s shoes next season.

Dixon spent last year on the scout team, so this is his first time working solely with UW’s defensive schemes. He’s generally lined up with the second team, with senior Greg Ducre and sophomore Marcus Peters usually holding the No. 1 cornerback spots. Peters, though, is also being looked at as a safety.
