A few links to send you into a (hopefully) sunny Seattle weekend:
— The soon-to-be-twice-a-month Sporting News has this notebook with an item on the bottom on Husky commit C.J. Wilcox writing that Wilcox’s meteoric rise proves that there “still is such a thing as a sleeper” in recruiting.
— One place where high school players cease being sleepers is the annual Rose City Showcase, which will be held this weekend in Portland. Many of the top players in the country will be there, including (reportedly) Avery Bradley, Abdul Gaddy and Peyton Siva. The Portland Oregonian also reports that among the players expected are Shawn Kemp Jr., who still has the Huskies listed among his college options, and Mike Moser of Grant High, also thought to be a top target of the Huskies. Moser is a 6-8 forward. Here’s a look at some of the teams expected to be there. I’ll try to pass along anything interesting I see coming out of the tournament (unfortunately I can’t be there this year but it’s an event I will try to get to one of these years).
Steve Rivera of the Tucson Citizen has this story saying that Chase Budinger is likely gone to the NBA. The deadline to pull out is Monday.
— Cal’s Ryan Anderson has the same decision to make, and tells the San Jose Mercury News he’s as uncertain as ever about what he’s going to do.
— Speaking of Arizona, the Citizen also has this pretty frank Q-and-A with Lute Olson that seems to be drawing a lot of attention down there.
Jon Wilner has this review of the hiring of Johnny Dawkins at Stanford.
All for now.
