Young passses on UW

Bad news for the Huskies as JC guard Blake Young has reportedly passed on Washington in favor of Kansas State.
Here’s a report from the Wichita Eagle.
UW coaches can’t comment on recruiting. But word on the grapevine was that Young, a 6-foot-2 combo guard from Daytona Beach (Fla.) Community College, had a good trip to Washington this weekend but was enamored by the pull of Bob Huggins and was influenced by the fact that his JC coach, Brad Underwood, played at Kansas State.
I don’t think there was much optimism at UW as the weekend ended that the Huskies were going to get Young.
I think the Huskies figured they would have gotten Young if Kansas State hadn’t gotten involved late in the process. But there’s a reason why Huggins always won at Cincinnati.
With the decision of Keaton Grant to go to Purdue over the weekend, the Huskies will have to turn elsewhere now if they want to add any players to next year’s team. They may pursue other transfers, or simply hold onto the scholarship for next year.
