Is Peyton Siva helping Louisville recruit Tony Wroten?

It appears as if Garfield High senior Tony Wroten will visit Louisville this weekend and it wouldn’t be surprising if his host is former Franklin High standout Peyton Siva. It stands to reason considering they’re good friends and Siva walked a similar path as Wroten.
Two years ago, Siva had UW as one of top two schools on his list before choosing the Cardinals. Husky fans are hoping for a better result this time.
Wroten has said he’s heard from many current and former Huskies, but he’s also probably getting advice from former Terrence Williams, the former Rainier Beach star who played at Louisville.
On his Twitter account, Wroten said he’s going to announce his college decision Oct. 7.

Just found out there isn’t any school on the 8th so Imma make my college anouncement on the 7th instead of the 8th. Let people noless than a minute ago via ƜberTwitter

— Washington will not have Kingma siblings playing for the Huskies. Jackson High senior Brett Kingma, the younger brother of Kristi Kingma, told the Everett Herald he dropped UW from his list this week after the Huskies received commitments from a pair of guards in the past week.
Kingma said: “I felt like I want to be happy in college and I felt like the other options would be good for me. I didn’t want to waste (Washington’s) time if I didn’t want to go there.”
Kingma has Oregon, Arizona State and BYU on his list.
— Nice story from UW about the Huskies’ visit Monday to the Seattle Children’s Hospital. believes the Huskies will have a difficult time replacing Elston Turner and Tyreese Breshers.
— More hot water for Oregon? Maybe so. The Oregonian is reporting: “Due to the slew of players transferring from Oregon and the apparent academic ineligibility of LeKendric Longmire, coach Dana Altman is facing the possibility of reduced practice time and fewer scholarships in the future.”
— It’s not all gloom and doom in Eugene. It appears the Ducks added a point guard, Jay-R Strowbridge, a 5-11 fifth-year senior who began his career at Nebraska before transferring to Jacksonville State. He sat out as a junior and averaged 12.5 points, 2.3 assists and 2.3 rebounds last season.
— There’s lots of angst about the Huskies on a VCU fan forum. They’re vilifying UW because Jernard Jarreau made a verbal commitment to the Rams before visiting Montlake last Saturday.
— On it’s pay site, ESPN ranked the top 2010 classes and to no one’s surprise, Kentucky is No. 1. Arizona is third and the Wildcats are the only Pac-10 team on the list.
— Kentucky coach John Calipari believes former UW recruit Enes Kanter will be eligible to play for the Wildcats this season despite allegations the 6-11 center received as much as $100,000 in cash and benefits from a Turkish professional team. Calipari said: “If you’re under 18 years of age, you’re not considered a professional in Europe anymore. You couldn’t sign a FIBA contract, so you have no contract, and any games you played against professional players now do not work against you. That’s the new rules.”
— Thanks to a poster for providing this link about a contest to attend the Maui Invitational.
