Husky Men's Basketball

The latest news and analysis on Husky men's hoops.

Recruiting heating up

A few people have asked here in recent days what the Huskies are doing about the Class of 2007.
We’ll get to that soon enough.
But the more pertinent recruiting news is that the Huskies aren’t done with the Class of 2006.
As we wrote in this story last week, the Huskies are expecting a visit this weekend from Blake Young, a junior college guard from Florida.
He’s expected to make a decision sometime after he visits.
Word was UW was the favorite for his services until Kansas State, and new coach Bob Huggins, got involved late in the process.
Young visited K-State last weekend. Not only is Huggins a big name and an aggressive recruiter who appears ready to get K-State on the map in a hurry, but Young’s junior college coach played at Kansas State.
In case Young goes elsewhere, the Huskies are also recruiting guard Keaton Grant, a 6-3, 200-pounder who played last season at North Bridgton (Maine) Academy. Grant is expected to visit UW Sunday-Tuesday and will likely be offered a scholarship if Young doesn’t commit.
Here’s a Scout.com profile of Grant.
Grant is also listed as the No. 24 prep school player in the country by Hoop Scoop. Two of his North Bridgton teammates are rated higher on that list.
UW, however, won’t take both Grant and Young.
As I wrote last week, the Huskies are expecting to give out one more scholarship. Technically, they are at their limit, but they obviously expect something to happen to open one up — most likely, Zach Johnson won’t be back on a basketball scholarship after missing the last two years with knee injuries. But that part of the equation doesn’t need to be taken care of now.
I talked with Grant and we’ll have more on him on-line and in the paper tomorrow.
