Watch future Huskies Wroten, Stewart and Andrews tonight

In just its second year, the “Clash of the Classes” Ultimate All-American Experience has quickly become a must-see event that attracts the best high school players in Washington and Oregon.
Tonight’s game begins at 8 p.m. at the Beaverton Hoop YMCA will feature 10 players who verbally committed to Division I schools, including future Washington Huskies Tony Wroten Jr., Hikeem Stewart and Andrew Andrews.
Other D-1 commits include: Kyle Wiltjer (Kentucky), Gary Bell Jr. (Gonzaga), Brett Kingma (Oregon), Austin Kuemper (Oregon), Davonte Lacy (Washington State), Jack Grodahl (Stanford) and David Carr (Portland).
A couple of standout juniors include: Anrio Adams and Jordan Tebbutt, who have Washington and many Pac-10 schools on their lists.
If you can’t make it, here’s a link to watch a live streaming video of the all-star game.
Wiltjer put to rest the rumors about de-committing from Kentucky and looking at Washington and Oregon.

Everyone I don’t know where your getting these rumors but they aren’t true. Just had a great visit last week. Can’t wait to sign to UK!less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone

— I’m a sucker for a good feature and Steve Megargee at wrote an insightful piece on Stanford’s Dwight Powell who strongly considered Harvard before choosing Stanford. By the way, Powell will probably be my choice for Pac-10 Freshman of the Year.
— Nice update on Oregon State. Sophomore guard Jared Cunningham, who I think is ready for a big breakout season, predicted the Beavers will make the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1990.
— The takes a look at redshirt freshman C.J. Wilcox. talks to freshman Desmond Simmons.
— It’s a good thing UW beefed up and added Aziz N’Diaye because Arizona State has a pair of 7-footers in Ruslan Pateev and Jordan Bachynski. Their toughest post player may be Kyle Cain, a 6-foot-7, 210-pound freshman who is known for rebounding and toughness according to the Arizona Republic.
— Arizona’s Jamelle Horne and Zane Johnson recevied extra benefits during the 2006 Arizona Cactus Classic recruiting showcase, which resulted in sanctions against the program that affected the 2007-08 season.
— Arizona’s Derrick Williams was the only Pac-10 player who made top 25 big man list compiled by’s Gary Parrish. Parrish also ranked the top 40 wing players which included Colorado’s Cory Higgins (23), ASU’s Ty Abbott (27), UCLA’s Malcolm Lee (30) and UCLA Tyler Honeycutt (40). says it’s going to be a big recruiting weekend for Arizona which hosts two five-star recruits (2013 guard Tyree Robinson and 2012 forward Grant Jerrett) and Sidiki Johnson, a 6-8 forward who verbally committed to the Wildcats.
— It’s not often when UCLA and Oregon State are after the same recruit, but that appears to be the case with Elijah Carter, a 6-foot-2 guard from New Hampshire. According to ZagsBlog, Carter has backed out of a trip to UCLA, but plans to visit OSU next weekend.
— It should come as no surprise the Pac-10 got dissed in a list ranking the nation’s top conferences.’s Andy Glockner put the Pac-10 at No. 7 behind No. 6 Mountain West and No. 5 SEC, which is a little surprising to me. But of course, I’m a little biased.
— Good line from Colorado coach Tad Boyle – who was introduced as Ted Boyle – at the Big 12 Media Day. He said: “I have always wanted to be a one-and-done guy and I think this year we are going to be.” The Big 12 is saying good riddance to the Buffs and many people including Texas coach Rick Barnes thinks the conference will be stronger without Colorado and Nebraska, which is going to the Big Ten. Said Barnes: “Maybe people are going to realize you don`t always have to expand to be better.”
— Colorado was picked ninth in the Big 12.
— Cool promotion in Arizona in which players hand delivered season tickets to Wildcats fans.
