Recruiting update: Peters, Judge, Euro prospects and more

Just 12 days before the May 18 signing deadline and still no real change on the Washington recruiting front.
Richard Peters, a a 6-foot-9 forward from Westwind Prep International in Phoenix who decommitted from Oklahoma, is still waiting on his ACT scores. He told the Arizona Republic this week that UW remains his favorite. He’s also being recruited by Marquette, Alabama, Auburn, Clemson and Indiana.
Peters would like to enroll in the fall, but may reclassify as a 2012 recruit.
According to numerous reports, former Kansas State forward Wally Judge no longer has Washington among his list of favorites.
The 6-foot-9 sophomore was scheduled to visit the Huskies this weekend, but the visit has reportedly been canceled. He’s expected to decide between Rutgers and Maryland.
The Husky Haul has done a fantastic job identifying four European prospects who have drawn interest from Washington. The website is also reporting Aaron Dotson, the former Rainier Beach High star, will transfer from LSU to Utah.


FRIDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:
— Washington’s Isaiah Thomas and Justin Holiday are among the 44 players who will participate in the first-ever NBA draft combine that will be held this weekend in New Jersey. Twenty-two players will work out Saturday and the other half will go Sunday. They will have the standard measurements taken, go through skill tests and play five-on-five games. Executives from 26 teams are expected to attend.
— Here’s some positive press on Thomas’ draft chances.
— Oregon and Oregon State have a plan on how they’ll spend the increased revenue from the Pac-12’s new TV deal.
— It appears as if the reports that Gus Johnson will not resign with CBS Sports may have been premature. There’s a chance the two sides will come to terms and Johnson will return for a 16th season calling NCAA tournament action.
— Interesting story from ESPN.com’s Dave Telep who gives his ideas on how to fix offseason recruiting.
