Morning links: Some closure on Lupoi, plus a big recruiting pickup for UW

We have a few different topics to cover this morning. Here we go.

--- Here's our story on the news yesterday that the NCAA has decided not to seek further action against Tosh Lupoi. He was investigated for allegations that he paid $4,500 to help former recruit Andrew Basham pay for online classes and tutoring.

--- Fife offensive lineman Kaleb McGary said yesterday that he plans to sign with Washington. Here's an excerpt from Todd Milles' story:

The two-way, all-South Puget Sound League 2A performer had been slated to announce his decision on signing day Wednesday, but said he woke up Monday with a different plan in mind.

And his thoughts kept going back to the UW, which he said he was taking “a safe chance” on despite not knowing new Huskies coach Chris Petersen and his staff as well as others who has recruited him longer.

"Last night I had been thinking, if I am going to declare early and give any (other recruit) time or help anybody else, it had to be today," McGary said "I decided to go with UW - an easy choice and smart choice."

McGary has received more than a dozen scholarship offers from big-time NCAA Division I programs, including Arizona State, California, Nebraska, Oregon, Oregon State, USC, Wisconsin and WSU.

--- Here's the Seattle Times story on Lupoi.
