Talent down in Washington this year

For those of you who have asked why the Huskies don’t have a lot of commitments from in-state players this year — just six — hopefully our story today will answer your question.
Here’s our annual list of Blue Chips, Red Chips and White Chips and the story that goes with it which makes it clear that the talent level is simply down this season in the state of Washington.
Things like this are always cyclical and most scouts believe that the talent level will be back up again next year. But this year, there just aren’t a lot of players regarded as sure things.
The four Blue Chips include Nate Williams, who is heading to UW.
Our list is compiled by veteran reporter Craig Smith, who talks to a number of college and high school coaches in putting it together.
As Craig points out in the story, Chris Izbicki is regarded in a more higher light nationally than he is locally as those who have seen him play on a regular basis are a little less sure of his potential.
