Thursday afternoon links

Passing along a few links.
THURSDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:
— It’s a little old, but five-star recruit Isaac Hamilton, a Los Angeles shooting guard, re-tweeted his list of top five schools and Washington made the cut. The rest include: Baylor, UNLV, San Diego State and UTEP. This latest news contradicts reports that said he was visiting Florida on Oct. 6.
— According to NY2LASports.com, Kyle Washington, a 6-9 forward from Minnesota, lists UW, Baylor, Iowa State, Louisville, Marquette, North Carolina State and Ohio State as top seven schools.
Add UCLA to the mix of schools who are after Darin Johnson, the 6-4 shooting guard from Sacramento. He’s scheduled to visit San Diego State (Aug. 31), Oregon (Sept. 14), Marquette (Sept. 20) and UW (Oct. 6).
— USC junior guard Maurice Jones, who led the Trojans in scoring last season and is academically ineligible this season, announced on his Twitter account that he’s going to transfer.
— Oregon State coach Craig Robinson received a one-year contract extension that pushes his deal with the Beavers through the 2016-17 season.
— ESPN Insider (a subscription site) takes a look at UCLA and tabs the Bruins as Pac-12 favorites if freshman Shabazz Muhammad and Kyle Anderson are granted eligibility by the NCAA.
— California is battling Kentucky and Louisville for four-star prospect Marcus Lee. Securing the 6-9 forward from Antioch, Calif. would be a huge lift for the Bears who already have commitments from Jabari Bird, who is considered a five-star recruit.
— Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun retired after 26 years and three national titles Connecticut. Former Sonics guard Kevin Ollie takes over and was given a one-year, $625,000 salary, which basically amounts to a tryout.
