Comment: Don’t expect Isaiah Thomas coming in as part of this class.
He said the other day he still intends to be a Husky, but going to a prep school for a year, or something along those lines, seems a more viable option.

Still, this leaves UW with 15 players, two over the limit.
But as Lorenzo Romar always says, he doesn’t offer scholarships without knowing it’s going to work out.
There are several ways to get to the number.
First, Morris has apparently agreed that he will be a walk-on if needed.
Second, I still think it’s better than even money that Spencer Hawes stays only one year.
Judging by the fact that they’ve signed two big men for 07-08, it seems like maybe they’re planning along those lines, as well.
Again, I’m sure there are lots of other options, as well. The most important thing to remember is that a lot can change in a year.
And finally, just remember again what Romar always says that they know what they’re doing.
