Morning links: High praise for Cyler Miles, plus a new commitment

If you were on pins and needles anticipating Chris Petersen's first career tweet -- and we certainly hope you were not -- the Huskies coach came through on Wednesday with one word: "#Woof!" OK, so that's one word, a hashtag and an exclamation point. He's nothing if not efficient.

As you know, such a missive signifies the oral commitment of a recruit -- in this case, Bellevue offensive tackle Henry Roberts, whom Scout.com rates as a 4-star prospect. It appears as if Petersen and staff will continue the "woof" tweet tradition started by former coach Steve Sarkisian (or, rather, the assistants who handle those social media accounts).
