Scouts Inc. ranks UW class No. 21

Scouts Inc. has revised its rating of college basketball’s recruiting classes for 2008 to take into account the late signing period, and has UW slotted at No. 21
Author Antonio Williams writes that “Lorenzo Romar knows how to evaluate guards — Nate Robinson and Brandon Roy are evidence of that fact. The fact that this class has three stellar backcourt players is a scary prospect for opposing coaches in the Pac-10. Capable scorers Elston Turner and Scott Suggs are the top two players in the group.”
Nitpickers will point out Romar didn’t recruit Roy or Robinson, and it’s interesting that he mentions Turner and not Isaiah Thomas, who may be the most immediate impact player of the bunch.
Other Pac-10 teams rated are UCLA (No. 1), Arizona (No. 9) and Oregon (No.15).
UPDATE — Here are rankings from Scout.com (not to be confused with Scouts Inc.) which also have UW at No. 21. So at least there’s no doubt about what the experts think.
FORTIER-BROWN UPDATE — Also, here’s an update on the Brown University job from the Providence Journal indicating that a hire likely won’t be made until the first week of June. UW assistant Paul Fortier is reported to be one of four finalists for that job.
