I'll be back with more information on some of these, but here's what caught my ear first time through (in no particular order).
* He said he's excited and proud of his first class and that he believes he filled some needs.
* Like Willingham, he's not predetermining that anyone should redshirt. But there were a good handful of players who he actually mentioned as likely to provide immediate help.
* He said the class is big on roughly linebacker sized guys, and that's because those are the kinds of guys who run down on special teams -- which was an area of emphasis at several points of his talk.
* Concerning his secondary violation in the recruitment of Desmond Trufant, he said he didn't think fog machines would be considered part of the "gameday experience" because they haven't traditionally been used at Husky Stadium.
* He called wide receiver James Johnson "the biggest get in the class."
* He said he's already offered 20 players for the class of 2010... with emphasis on offensive linemen, running backs, depth at receiver and what he called "outside linebacker body types."
* He said that next year's class of in-state talent is better over a good variety of positions.
* He said Jake Locker is throwing and doing well.
* He said another player or two could be added to the class at some point, but apparently not over the next few days.
* He said he has plenty of good candidates for the receivers coach position and might have an announcement next week.
* He gave the class a grade of "C." But he added that he almost never gives grades above C.
* He said he expects all 18 recruits to make it into school.
* He said there have been no position changes of exisiting personnel ... or at least that he had none to announce.
* He said he hasn't looked at other Pac-10 classes enough to say which schools might have helped themselves most today.
*He implied heavily that the Huskies will be playing in new uniforms next season. But otherwise, he didn't give much away in terms of what they might look like.
