A new Husky?

Scout.com is reporting tonight that the Huskies have gotten a commitment for the Class of 2010 from Desmond Simmons, a 6-7 forward from Salesian High in Richmond, Calif.
Scout calls Simmons the 18th best small forward in the Class of 2010 and reports that he committed after taking an unofficial visit to UW over the weekend.
Here’s his profile reporting that he also had offers from Oregon State and St. Mary’s. He averaged 19 points a game last season for Salesian.
He scored 31 points and had 19 rebounds when Salesian won the first California Interscholastic Federation state title in March, finishing 31-4 overall.
Simmons was also named the East Bay Boys Basketball Player of the Year by the Oakland Tribune.
With Quincy Pondexter being UW’s only senior next season, the Huskies won’t have a lot of scholarships to give and Kentwood HIgh’s Josh Smith is obviously also a target for that class. As always, I would imagine UW will figure out a way to make room.
