Wednesday links: C.J. Wilcox is one to watch
Thought I’d pass along a few links.
— Bleacher Reports ranks C.J. Wilcox 19th on its list of 25 players to watch next season.
— Timberline High standout Donaven Dorsey, a combo guard from Lacey, WA who committed to the Huskies, moved up one spot and is now a four-star prospect, according to Scout.com. The 6-5 wing is still receiving three stars from ESPN and Yahoo!.
— Great recruiting roundup on northwest high school basketball players by Jason McCleary at Left Coast Recruiting. He reports Josh Martin, who is considering Washington, will visit Florida State early September.
— A year ago, four high-school prospects interested in Washington and Nigel Williams-Goss, who signed with the Huskies, played in the prestigious Under Armour Elite 24. This year, not one of the 25 prep stars playing in the game is a UW prospect. After failing to nab several highly touted targets in the past year, perhaps Washington has altered it’s recruiting practices. Scout.com reports the Huskies are not recruiting a five-star 2014 prospect.
— According to the Sporting News, Lorenzo Romar is fifth among Pac-12 coaches in a Twitter ranking. The website concedes it’s a subjective survey, but it’s an interesting look at which coach values social media.
— It’s a little old, but the Arizona State Sun Devils finished its exhibition China tour 3-0. Star sophomore Jahii Carson scored 24 points in 24 minutes in a 99-77 win over Fujian in Nanning, China.
— Modest Neilsen ratings suggest you’re not watching Fox Sports 1, the new all-sports format cable channel that launched last week.
— ESPN’s Tip-off Marathon serves as the unofficial start to the college basketball season on Nov. 11. It’s a unique format of 16 continuous games for 24 hours. The action includes just one Pac-12 team. Stanford hosts BYU at 11 p.m.
