Caught up with Rainier Beach senior Hikeem Stewart at Tony Wroten’s event Thursday and the Washington commit said he’s going to lobby San Diego big man Angelo Chol (left) on behalf of the Huskies.
“That’s who we want now,” Stewart said. “I’m going to hit him up on Twitter.”
Securing Chol, a 6-foot-8, 210-pound forward, won’t be easy. He”s considered a four-star recruit by ESPN and Rivals. He also has some notable schools on his list.
According to Scout.com, Chol will visit Kansas on Oct. 15, North Carolina on Jan. 2, Arizona on Jan. 29 and UW on Feb. 12.
REACTION TO WROTEN:
Brandon Roy spoke favorably of Wroten during an interview Friday with Kevin Calabro on 710 ESPN.
“He’s (got) really good ball-handling skills,” Roy said. “He’s a next-level passer and what I mean by that is he has NBA-court vision. And not just a regular NBA (player), he has that Chris Paul, Deron Williams-type of vision.”
And here’s a small sample via Twitter of the reaction following Wroten decision to play college basketball at Washington.
His close friend Peyton Siva, a Louisville sophomore, said congratulations despite the Garfield High standout picking UW ahead of the Cardinals.

SATURDAY LINKS:
— Here’s an in-depth look at the maturation of Wroten compliments of SeaTown Sports.
— Thursday was a busy recruiting day for the Pac-10 (Wroten to UW and Jabari Brown to Oregon), which explains why Cal receiving its first commitment got somewhat overlooked. The Bears reportedly landed David Kravish, a 6-foot-9 center/forward from Missouri who is not ranked on any of the major recruiting services.
— ESPN analyst Paul Biancardi tells the Register-Guard speculates on Brown committing to Oregon and says: “Everybody wants to play with great players. Jabari Brown is a great player. … He will be the face of the Oregon program for years to come.”
Washington State has a pretty cool highlight video that’s blowing up on the net.
— And it seems as if the Cougars have a new player, Chris McNamara, a 6-foot-9 forward from England who last played at Bellevue Community College. He’s possibly a walk-on.
Seattle University takes another step to returning to becoming a full-fledged NCAA Division I member. The Redhawks athletic program will undergo a year-long review. SU is expected to regain full D-1 membership for the 2012-13 school year.
