Husky Men's Basketball

The latest news and analysis on Husky men's hoops.

October 31, 2011 at 10:44 AM

UW only Pac-12 team without 2012 verbal commit

And then there was one.
Washington is the only Pac-12 school that doesn’t have a verbal commitment as the Nov. 9 early signing period approaches.
The Huskies earned that distinction Sunday night when Oregon received a commitment from former four-star prospect Dominc Artis. The Ducks are getting a 6-foot-1, 165-pound point guard from Vallejo, Calif. who originally committed to UCLA.
He rescinded his commitment last month when the Bruins nabbed five-star 6-foot-8 forward Kyle Anderson who is a talented playmaker.
It didn’t take Artis long to find a home. He looked at California before deciding on Oregon.
It wasn’t exactly a banner week for Oregon. Four-star point guard Tyrone Wallace dropped the Ducks from his list days ago and will reportedly decide between California and Colorado.
In other recruiting news, Stanford secured a commitment Monday morning from four-star Las Vegas prospect Rosco Allen, according to Evan Daniels at Scout.com
That’s a big pickup for coach Johnny Dawkins. Allen, a 6-9 and 210 small forward, had North Carolina on his final list of teams. Oregon and UNLV were also being considered.
USC may have the inside track on Shabazz Muhammad, the consensus No. 1 college basketball prospect in the class of 2012. His father Ron Holmes played for the Trojans in the early 1980s. Muhammad took his second unofficial visit to USC two weeks ago.
Update: 1:31 p.m. — Arizona received a verbal commitment from Kaleb Tarczewski, who is considered the consensus No. 1 center prospect in the nation.
Here’s a look at the Pac-12 2012 verbal commits.


TRACKING 2012 VERBAL COMMITMENTS
Name ………………. Pos. ….. Ht/Wt. ….. Hometown ………………. ESPN-Rivals-Scout star ratings

1. ARIZONA
Brandon Ashley ……… F …….. 6-8/220 …… Henderson, NV …………. 5-5-5

Kaleb Tarczewski ……. C ……. 7-0/220 …… Claremont, NH …………… 5-5-5
Gabe York ……………. G ……. 6-2/170 …… Orange, Calif. …………… 4-4-4
Summary: It’s a wrap. Wildcats will win the recruiting war in the Pac-12 in 2012. All that remains to be seen is where they fall nationally. Many analysts believe they’ll overtake Indiana for the top spot in the land. This class is loaded with three players in the top 10 on ESPN’s list. Coach Sean Miller is rebuilding a dynasty in the desert.
2. UCLA
Jordan Adams ………… G/F … 6-5/230 …… Lawrenceville, GA ……. 4-4-4
Kyle Anderson ………… F …… 6-8/215 …… Fairview, NJ ……………. 5-5-5
Summary: Losing point guard Dominic Artis won’t impact the Bruins if they pull in Shabazz Muhahmmed, the consensus No. 1 college basketball prospect in the class of 2012.
3. COLORADO
Wesley Gordon ……… F ……. 6-8/210 ….. Colorado Springs, CO …… 3-3-4
Chris Jenkins ………… F …… 6-6/185 ……. Detroit ……………………. 2-3-NR
Xavier Johnson ……… G/F …. 6-6/185 …… Temecula, CA …………… 4-4-4
Josh Scott ……………. F ……. 6-9/220 ….. Monument, CO …………… 4-4-4
Summary: Moving to the Pac-12 is paying early dividends for the Buffaloes. Coach Tad Boyle said there’s buzz around the program generated by a new practice facility, a school-record 24 wins last season and moving to the Pac-12. “We’ve been able to sell that,” he said. “Our staff has worked very, very hard, and I like where we’re at and November 9th, hopefully, will be a great day for Colorado basketball.”
4. STANFORD
Roscoe Allen ………….. F ……. 6-9/210 ….. Las Vegas …………….. 4-4-4
Christian Sanders ……. G …… 6-3/170 ……. Houston ………………… 3-3-3
Grant Verhoeven ……… C …… 6-8/215 ….. Visalia, CA …………… 4-3-4
Summary: The Cardinal were seventh in our rankings last month, but has since landed four-star recruits Allen and Verhoeven. Stanford picked up two solid additions for the front line and Sanders is reportedly good enough to compete immediately.
5. WASHINGTON STATE
Brett Boese …………. SF …. Spokane, WA ……. 6-7/205 …….. 2-NR-NR
Demarquise Johnson … SG … Pontiac, MI ……… 6-5/185 ……. 3-3-4
Richard Longrus ……. SF …. Oakland ………….. 6-7/210 …….. 2-2-3
Richard Peters …………. PF ….. Toronto ………….. 6-10/255 …….. 3-3-3
Summary: The Cougars have been very busy lately. Weeks ago, they didn’t have a verbal commitment and recently everything fell into place for coach Ken Bone. He said: “We do have something special to offer and we sell that big time. I think some of the kids have bought into that. I think come Nov. 9, we will be able to sign some guys that want to be Cougs.”
6. OREGON
Dominic Artis …………. G …… 5-11/170 ….. Richmond, CA ………… 4-4-4
Summary: The Ducks check in at No. 6 in our rankings after landing Artis who will likely take over the point guard duties in 2012-13.
7. ARIZONA STATE
Eric Jacobsen ………. F/C …. 6-9/230 … Chandler, AZ ……………… 3-3-NR
Kenny Martin ………… F ……. 6-9/205 … Glendale, AZ ……………… 3-3-NR
Calaen Robinson ……. G ……. 6-2/170 … Chandler, AZ …………….. 3-3-3
Summary: The Sun Devils are finished recruiting for 2012 and coach Herb Sendek is working hard on the 2013 and ’14 classes. He secured a commitment from a high school sophomore.
8. UTAH
Josh Hearlihy ……….. F ……. 6-7/210 … North Hollywood, CA …… 2-NR-NR
Jordan Loveridge …… F ……. 6-6/225 … West Jordan, Utah ……… 4-3-3
Justin Seymour …… SG …. 6-3/196 …. Smyrna, GA ………… 2-NR-3
Summary: The Utes took the unconventional route and nabbed out-of-state recruit Seymour.
9. OREGON STATE
Langston Morris-Walker …. G/F … 6-5/200 …….Berkeley, CA ……………. 2-3-3
Maika Ostling ………………. C ……. 6-10/230 …. Dayton, Ore. ………………. 2-3-2
Jarmal Reid ……………………. F ……… 6-7/225 …… Columbia, Ga. …………….. 2-4-4
Summary: Coach Craig Robinson is bringing in athletic players to play his brand of basketball. Ostling is an important addition because he’s one of the top players in the state. Reid might be the first four-star, out-of-state recruit in a long time.
10. USC
Strahinja Gavrilovic …… F ……. 6-8/215 … La Jolla, CA ……………… NR-NR-NR
Larry Lewis ……………. G …….. 6-2/175 …. Phoenix ……………………. 2-3-NR
J.T. Terrell …………….. G …… 6-3/175 …. Burlington, N.C. ………… 4-4-4*
Summary: It’s curious why coach Kevin O’Neill must use unconventional tactics to land recruits. The Trojans roster is filled with projects and rejects. Terrell, a former Wake Forest guard charged with DUI, will sign a LOI next week and will have two years of eligibility remaining. O’Neill could turn everything around if he lands Muhammad.
11. CALIFORNIA
Kaileb Rodriguez …… F …… 6-8/195 … Highlands Ranch, CO ……. 2-NR-NR
Summary: Coach Mike Montgomery raised a few eyebrows last week when he spoke out against recruiting deregulation. Many wonder if the 64-year-old coach can ‘keep up with Joneses’ as he promised. If Cal lands four-star recruit Zena Edosomwan and Wallace, it will move into the top five spot in the conference.
Early signing period: November 9-16.
Regular signing period: April 11, 2012 -May 16
