Abbott visiting UW this weekend

As has been reported in numerous places, guard Ty Abbott of Phoenix is expected to make a recruiting visit to UW this weekend, after visiting Washington State earlier in the week.
Here’s a profile of Abbott from Rivals.com and another from Scout.com.
As the Rivals story reports, UW coach Lorenzo Romar had an in-home visit with Abbott last Friday. He is expected to be at WSU Thursday and Friday and UW Saturday and Sunday.
The Rivals story includes this interesting quote from Abbott about his meeting with Romar:
“Coach Romar just said that he wanted to get back to being more athletic and playing faster, not so much halfcourt stuff.”
Sounds from that like Romar isn’t putting much stock in Spencer Hawes returning.
Abbott also said that Romar told him that “they wanted to get bigger at guard and that I would help them accomplish a lot of what they were trying to do with recruiting at the guard position.”
Abbott also told Rivals that he hopes to make a decision next week, and that “all things being equal” he may be more inclined to stay home and play at Arizona State. But if not, that he would have little trouble uprooting and heading to one of the two Washington schools.
As we’ve written here before, this is a rare time that UW and WSU are battling this closely for the same player in basketball.
Abbott originally signed with New Mexico but got out of his letter when Ritchie McKay was fired.
