Huskies land on the top 10 list of a top 10 prospect

[Reminder: Sonics legend Shawn Kemp, the father of UW freshman Shawn Kemp Jr., joins us noon today for a live chat.]
Last year Washington didn’t start making hay with its recruiting targets until September when the Huskies landed Hikeem Stewart, Andrew Andrews and Jernard Jarreau in a two-week flurry. They added Tony Wroten Jr. in October and all four signed during the early signing period.
It’s still too early to tell if this year will produce similar results. So far things have been fairly quiet with the 2012 recruits and there’s been more chatter about a potential 2013 class that could surpass any in school history in terms of star power.
Before the Huskies can think about 2013, they need to address the 2012 group. Washington will have at least two scholarships to offer when seniors Darnell Gant and Scott Suggs depart. There’s a possibility a couple of other slots on the roster could become available factoring in early NBA defections and transfers.
On Tuesday, UW landed on Anthony Bennett’s top 10 list, which is a significant accomplishment.

Hard decision to make but I narrowed it down to top 10 , Kentucky, UConn, West Virginia, Oregon, Pittsburgh, … http://tmi.me/ee3JUless than a minute ago via UberSocial for BlackBerry Favorite Retweet Reply


With so many schools to consider including Ohio State, Kentucky, Connecticut, Pittsburgh and Oregon, it doesn’t appear as if Bennett will make a decision during the Nov. 9-16 early signing period. Still, many believe the 6 foot 7 Canadian forward is worth the wait. He’s ranked No. 7 overall by Rivals, No. 2 among power forwards by Scout and No. 8 by ESPN.
In the video (below) produced by Ballislife.com, Bennett looks like a powerful player around the rim with tremendous leaping ability.

Here’s a look at UW’s 2012 targets, according to the major recruiting sites.


Anthony Bennett ………. 6-7/230 …. PF …. Henderson, NV
Jordan Tebbutt ………… 6-4/205 …. SF …. Mouth of Wilson, VA/Canby, Oregon
Jaylen Beckham ………. 6-0/160 …. PG …. Lexington, KY
Richard Peters …………. 6-10/245 .. C …… Phoenix
Zach Banner ……………. 6-9/295 …. C ….. Lakewood, WA
Demarquise Johnson … 6-5/185 …. SG … Phoenix
Bennett is the star of the group, but landing him appears to be a long shot. Washington was one of the first schools to recognize Tebutt had Division I ability, but nearly everyone in the Pac-12 has offered him a scholarship. He began his prep career in Oregon before transferring to famed Oak Hill Academy in Virginia.
The Huskies also have a bit of history with Peters, the former Oklahoma commit and Canadian big man who considered enrolling at UW this year. He’s drawing lots of interest. Banner is the son of former UW football great Lincoln Kennedy and his college future is probably on the gridiron.
ESPN rates Beckham and Johnson as three-star guards with little ties to the West Coast.
