Hawes ready to go

Before Lorenzo Romar’s news conference to talk about today’s new Huskies, center Spencer Hawes updated us on his health and said he will definitely play in the opener Sunday night against Pepperdine.
“Yep, for sure,” he said.
Hawes returned to practice Monday and said he “felt pretty good.” That work included some scrimmaging on Tuesday.
Hawes said he has no medical restrictions other than simply being in shape. “I’ll just go as hard as I can for as long as I can and go from there,” Hawes said.
The Huskies will play three games in three days so UW coaches are likely to try to let Hawes ease into things.
As for the recruits, Romar said he’s not sure if there will be any more signings this week.
“I don’t know,” he said. “No one else has said ‘I’m going to sign at the end of this week.”’
Isaiah Thomas apparently won’t sign with UW now, and the Huskies are still waiting to hear on Darnell Gant, who is also said to be seriously considering Oregon and Nevada.
