A look at 2012 Pac-12 recruiting rankings

Scout.com released its final 2012 recruit rankings and has Anthony Bennett at No. 8. The Canadian big man is considering UW among a host of others.
In his breakdown of the West Coast recruits, Scout’s Josh Gershon quoted analyst Brian Snow saying “A power forward all the way, physically Bennett can compete with anybody, and now he has to continue to refine his ball handling and feel for the game as he moves on to the college level.”
Gershon reports Bennett has not scheduled any trips.
The Pac-12 nabbed 13 recruits on Scout’s and ESPNU’s top 100 list.
The conference also secured 17 on Rivals top 150 list.

THURSDAY MORNING LINKS:
— Washington still appears to be the leader in the Aaron Gordon sweepstakes, according to Gershon. Another 2013 prospect to consider is Nigel Williams-Goss, a point guard at Findlay Prep. Gershon reports Michigan State and Duke are the leaders to nab Jabari Parker, the consensus No. 1 prospect in 2013, while Jabari Bird is leaning towards Cal.
— BYU doesn’t appear to have a strong chance at landing Parker, but the Cougars plan to remain in the hunt.
— Georgia big man Tony Parker, who is considering UCLA, Duke, Kansas and Georgia, will make a college decision Monday.
Mike Bohn might win a popularity contest at Colorado. The Buffaloes athletic director plans to take CU’s loyal fans to the 2013 Pac-12 Tournament in Las Vegas just as he did last season. The school paid travel expenses for 50 fans to Los Angeles for the Pac-12 Tournament and 100 students to Albuquerque for the NCAA Tournament.
— Here’s the latest mock draft from Draft Express with former UW star Terrence Ross being taken at No. 17 by Phoenix and Tony Wroten Jr. going to Memphis with at 20.
— In this interview with Slam Online, former UW star Isaiah Thomas sounds like a skilled pitch man as he professes his life-long admiration to Reebok. He also talks about the Rookie of the Year race.
— Not necessarily Pac-12 related, but Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan responded – poor I might add – to media attacks after it was learned he’s blocking redshirt freshman Jarrod Uthoff from transferring to 25 schools..
