Draws are finally up! Here (http://tennislink.usta.com/Tournaments/TournamentHome/Tournament.aspx?T=99869)
Heavy favorites are Steve Johnson and Klahn/Thacher.
1. Steve Johnson
2. Bradley Klahn
3. Kyle McMorrow
4. Ryan Thacher
5. Amit Inbar
For some reason 4 people were listed as #5 seeds. Daniel Kosakowski, Pedro Zerbini, Carlos Cueto and Jaak Poldma are not in the draw. I can't think of any other missing top players at the moment.
There's also an invitational section.

They play 2 rounds starting on Thursday, quarters on Friday, semis Saturday, final on Sunday for singles. Doubles start on Friday with 2 rounds, semis Saturday and final on Sunday.

any reason why those 4 are not in the singles draw? Just elected not too?
I think there are 4 5 seeds because they each have teh same weight in the draw. Will be assorted randomly. The USTA site labels them as the same seed I believe

All 4 of them played last weekend, so I don't think it is due to injury. They are certainly high enough ranked to merit seeds, which is why I noticed their absence. Poldma is still playing doubles, so he is still making the trip. Maybe the coaches decided to give them a rest? I don't believe anyone has to play the tournament.
There's nothing yet about the Pac 10's on Cal's website, while USC's article just says "so and so are playing", and UCLA's website has an article that doesn't even list who is playing. College tennis is like this, though. So hard to get timely updates or news about anything.

Spamming posts now before I'm gone for the weekend :)
No seed upsets in the first round.

Kosakowski isn't in because he is playing in the Future in Florida. He is in the quarters as well

Awesome! Good luck to him.
2nd round was not good for UW, who has now lost all its entrants in singles. Also Nguyen and Thacher lost.
