There are a lot of questions regarding on whom the Washington Huskies will sign in the class of 2012. A lot of effort was put in recruiting shooting guard Demarquise Johnson. Johnson decided to head elsewhere and attend Washington State University. Could the Huskies end up with a class of zero?
Washington has two scholarships available for 2012. There is possibility they will get a commitment from at least one player in the early signing period. Here are the players who are still on the recruiting board that the Huskies are looking at.
Anthony Bennett- Bennett is a flat out beast. A 6-foot-7 forward who is very versatile. Bennett can handle the ball and bang in the post. You won’t see a big man with a better motor than the Canadian forward. Expect Bennett’s recruitment to go all the way into spring.
Landen Lucas- Lucas will visit Washington on November 5th. With visits already taken to Stanford, Cal, and Tennessee. Lucas has told leftcoastrecruiting.com that he wants to sign in the early period. Stanford just received a commitment from big man Rosco Allen. Cal could possibly get a commitment from Zena Endosomwan soon. If Lucas doesn’t mind living far from home, Tennessee could be a possibility. The domino effect could land Lucas at Washington.
Zena Endosomwan- The 6-foot-8 big man was supposed to visit Washington last weekend but that visit never took place. Endosomwan has rescheduled his visit for a later date. Many believe that the Washington visit won’t take place because of UCLA and Cal being favorites. Whoever gets Endosomwan will be getting an active player with a lot of energy.
Jordan Tebbutt- Tebbutt is player who is under sized for his position. What makes up for it is hard work and dedication. Tebbutt might have reached his peak during his junior year. Recruiting has been quiet for Tebbutt as of lately. It will be quite interesting to see where the Oak Hill Warrior lands.
Anrio Adams- Many believe Adams isn’t getting recruited by his hometown school but that is not the case. Adams hasn’t played high school basketball in over a year. There are some concerns about Adams that the Huskies are looking at very close. Adams is a high quality guard that can score in bunches. Demarquise Johnson and Anrio Adams are pretty much the same height and play the same position. Adams would fit well in Coach Romar’s system.
Bennett and Adams would be the best fit for the Huskies. A solid shooting guard and a big man that would fit in well in the Huskies system. Adams size and length is what Romar likes in a guard. Bennett’s hustle and heart is similar to what former Husky Jon Brockman brought to the Huskies years ago.
