Signing day nears while UW waits to hear from top prospect

The early signing period begins tomorrow and for every Pac-12 team and their fans it’s a day akin to Christmas. It should be a banner day for the conference and teams such as Arizona, UCLA, Colorado, Stanford, Washington State and Oregon, which is expected to bring in top-rated 2012 classes.
Meanwhile Washington looks as if it will sit on the sidelines at least at the start of the period.
The Huskies hosted Portland-area prospect Landen Lucas during last Friday’s exhibition and the 6 foot 10 center/forward told the Oregonian he plans to make a decision this weekend.
He’s also considering California, Stanford and Tennessee.
Oregon has been active this week recruiting and collected verbal commitments from three-star Las Vegas forward Ben Carter and Houston forward Damyean Dotson who is rated a three-star prospect by ESPN and Rivals.
California also received a verbal commitment from point guard Tyrone Wallace, a four-star recruit from Bakersfield, Calif.
