Despite no Pac-12 game being held in California this weekend, the conference saw a number of important visitors, as Oregon State, Washington and Washington State were just three of the conference programs to host impact recruits.
2016 QB in Boulder
Colorado received an unofficial visit from 2016 quarterback Kevin Davidson over the weekend. While the 2015 California quarterback crop is almost comically loaded, the 2016 group has some talent as well. While Davidson doesn't yet hold an offer, it should only be a matter of time for the strong-armed 6-foot-4, 222-pound signal-caller.
Chico checks in with Huskies

Few recruits deserved a day off more than four-star running back Chico McClatcher on Saturday, just a day after rushing for five first-half touchdowns and game totals of 14 carries for 286 yards. But McClatcher took advantage of Washington's home game to make the trip to see the Huskies. Washington has commitments from the Nos. 5 and 6 players in the state, but keeping McClacher, the state's No. 3 prospect, at home would be a significant win over a number of Pac-12 programs for head coach Chris Petersen. Getting McClatcher on campus at any time this season is a big win.

Washington had a nice group of official visitors in town this weekend, as uncommitted defenders Quinten Pounds and D.J. Beavers joined running back Cameron Scarlett. While Scarlett is a top tailback target for a number of Pac-12 programs, Pounds holds Pac-12 offers from Cal, Colorado, Utah and Washington State, in addition to the Huskies.
They're calling it the Hill Mary -- Arizona's last gasp touchdown pass from Anu Solomon to Austin Hill in the Wildcats' come from behind, 49-45 win over Cal. At least one recruit was on hand to see it, as defensive tackle Finton Connolly stayed through the end of the game and snapped a shot of himself during the aftermath.

Washington State hosted a number of official visitors, including cornerbacks Cameron Haney and Darreyl Patterson, along with offensive linemen Noah Myers and Darrin Paulo. The Cougars nearly pulled off the upset of the young season, as they battled Oregon to the final whistle. Haney, who holds other Pac-12 offers from Arizona State and Washington, showed his perspective of the game.
