Huskies wooing another big man

Several publications are reporting Washington is hosting Jamaican big man Vashil Fernandez on an official visit this weekend.
The 6-foot-11, 225-pound center played last season at Princeton Day Academy in Maryland. He was being recruited by Florida State, Penn State, East Carolina and TCU.
Fernandez is said to be a standout on the defensive end with a limited offensive skill set at this stage of his career.
Last week Washington hosted God’s Gift Achiuwa, a 6-9 forward at Erie (N.Y.) Community College.
SATURDAY MORNING LINKS:
— Achiuwa is reportedly visiting St. John’s this weekend. His college coach Alex Nwora said Achiuwa was going to decide next week if he’s going to visit any more schools. He’s taken trips to Cincinnati and UW. There’s also reports Kentucky has expressed interest.
— Isaiah Thomas tells HoopsHype.com that he’s been in Dallas training with Jason Terry and plans to work out with Gary Payton in Las Vegas next week.
Some outlets are reporting Thomas has hired an agent, but according to the NBA the Washington junior doesn’t have an agent. There’s a chance he could return to UW if he pulls out of the draft before the May 8 deadline, but Thomas seems pretty adamant that he’s staying in the draft.
— The Denver Post takes a look at how Colorado will make the transition to the Pac-12 next season without star sophomore guard Alec Burks, who made himself available for the NBA draft.
Utah added Baltimore point guard Kareem Storey.
— There were rumors BYU standout Brandon Davies would transfer because he was suspended from the NCAA tournament after violating a school code. The 6-9 forward is high school friends with UW redshirt freshman C.J. Wilcox. Davies withdrew from school, but according to an ESPN.com report he’s expected to return to BYU next season.
