Rainier Beach’s Crisp gives verbal to UW

Rainier Beach guard David Crisp verbally committed to Washington, he announced via Twitter.

The 6-foot-1 senior is young for his grade (17 with a September birthday) plans to enroll in prep school before beginning his college career. He previously held offers from Boise State, Nebraska and Texas A&M, among others, and recently began to receive interest from schools such as Marquette and Connecticut.

Crisp’s cousin, Ahmad Rorie is committed to California and his good friend Tre’Shaun Fletcher is a freshman for Colorado. He called the opportunity to play against them exciting when he was originally offered by the UW less than two weeks ago.

Crisp is extremely athletic and shoots the ball well from outside. He is averaging 22.3 points per game and scored 27 in the first half of Saturday’s win at Cleveland. He showed off his athleticism by winning the slam dunk contest at the Les Schwab Invitational in December.

Dejounte Murray (2015) and Djuan Piper (2014), Crisp’s Rainier Beach teammates, also hold offers from the UW.
