Big recruiting weekend, but no new commits

Washington rolled out the red carpet for Aaron Gordon, Darin Johnson and Nigel Williams-Goss. According to recruiting analysts the Huskies made a big impression on the recruits, but did not receive any new members to the class of 2013.
Williams-Goss verbally committed to the Huskies months ago and it would have been a major achievement if UW would have gotten Gordon or Johnson to join him him.
However, those around Gordon say he’s committed to taking trips to Kansas (Oct. 12) and Arizona (Oct. 21). He’s also planning a visit to Kentucky.
Scout.com caught up with Williams-Goss and Johnson after their visits to Washington this weekend. Both were impressed with the Huskies and described how they went to Friday’s volleyball match, had dinner at the Metropolitan Grill, went paint balling with the team and had dinner at coach Lorenzo Romar’s house.
Johnson has taken trips to San Diego State and Oregon. He’s visiting Texas this week and will decide between the four schools.
Williams-Goss isn’t taking any more visits. but he’s unsure if he’ll sign in November during the early signing period or wait until the regular signing period, which begins April 17.
MONDAY MORNING LINKS:
— This time last year Arizona’s Josiah Turner and Tony Wroten Jr. folks were arguing which incoming freshman point guard would have the biggest impact on the season. Wroten won the Pac-12 Freshman of the Year award and was taken in the first round of the NBA draft. Meanwhile Turner, who left Wildcats, has bounced around quite a bit and has legal troubles.
— It’s a little old, but worth noting Kansas restructured coach Bill Self’s contract and will pay him $52 million over the next 10 years. His annual $3,856,000 is the fourth highest among coaches behind Kentucky’s John Calipari ($5.4M), Louisville’s Rick Pitino ($4.8M) and Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski ($4.7M).
