Report: Lorenzo Romar visits Aaron Gordon and Jabari Bird

Not sure how he does it, but ESPN recruiting analyst Dave Telep does a fantastic job charting the movements of 46 Division I men’s basketball coaches on the first day of the fall contact period, which runs until Oct. 5.
According to Telep, Washington coach Lorenzo Romar flew to the California Bay Area to visit 2013 prospects Aaron Gordon and Jabari Bird. Both are consensus five-star recruits who are considering the Huskies.
It’s interesting to note that Arizona State’s Herb Sendek and Romar are the only Pac-12 coaches – according to Telep’s report – who are targeting 2013 recruits on the first day of the contact period.
UCLA coach Ben Howland is reportedly meeting with Shabazz Muhammad, a 6-5 shooting guard who is ranked the No. 1 prospect in the country by ESPN and Rivals and No. 2 by Scout.


FRIDAY MORNING LINKS:
— Stanford is 0-3 on its Spain exhibition tour. The Cardinal have two games remaining against teams from the Asociacion de Clubs de Baloncesto, which is considered the top professional league in Europe. Newcomer Chasson Randle has led the team in scoring in two games.
— Seattle University coach Cameron Dollar has joined the world of Twitter. You can follow him @Coach_Dollar. “I want to give our fans, and the Seattle University community as a whole, a feeling that they have some inside knowledge of the Redhawk men’s basketball program. I look forward to interacting with our supporters in this way,” he said in a statement released by the school.
— It’s a little old, but former UW guard Elston Turner looks as if he’s going to have a big season at Texas A&M. He sat out last season, but led the Aggies with 13.8 points per game during their four-game tour of Europe. Here’s a video link to one of their games. Turner is No. 31.
