Letter-of-intent day

Today is the beginning of the early letter-of-intent signing period and UW is expected to sign four players:
— former Curtis High guard Isaiah Thomas, who is now at South Kent (Ct.) School;
— 6-6 guard Scott Suggs of Washington High in Washington, Mo;
— 6-4 guard Elston Turner Jr. of Elkins High in Houston;
— and 6-6, 235-pound forward Tyreese Breshers of Price High in Los Angeles.
There aren’t expected to be any additions or surprises.
From what I can gather, Breshers and Suggs are already eligible and Turner is close enough that it’s not a real concern. Thomas, however, apparently has a ways to go and his could be a Venoy Overton-type situation where his eligibility is uncertain until right before the season starts. So when counting the number of scholarships UW has awarded — this is 15 right now for the 2008-09 season — that’s something to keep in mind.
Breshers was named this week to the Long Beach Press-Telegram Best in the West list. The bio lists him as 6-6, 235 so that’s what I’ll go with for now, as well.
Turner was named recently to the All-Greater Houston Third Team.
Here’s Thomas’ roster at South Kent as well as a schedule. He scored 26 in South Kent’s game on Friday.
TONIGHT’S GAME ON ESPN2 —- Simple as that, that’s the TV info for tonight. The official tipoff time is 7:45 p.m.
