A Week Later, UW and UK Still Waiting On Terrence Jones

Made another round of calls to the folks around Terrence Jones, the country’s top-rated unsigned basketball recruit, and there’s nothing new to report.
It’s difficult to believe his recruiting saga intensified a week ago during last Friday’s press conference when he picked up a black Washington baseball cap among six choices.
Seven days later, there’s still no definitive resolution.
Jones has publicly talked about this story just once, telling the Oregonian he’s still committed to the Huskies, but unwilling to sign anything.
According to his Twitter page, it appears he’s still undecided about Washington and Kentucky.
