Early signs suggest UW scored big recruiting points this weekend

Judging by the pictures posted on his Twitter account, it appears as if Dejounte Murray had a good time this weekend during his official visit at Washington. He also posed with David Crisp, the former Rainier Beach High standout.

Murray and Crisp were teammates last year at Rainier Beach – Crisp is attending Brewster (N.H.) Academy this school year – and it appears as if they’ll pair again next season at Washington.

Both have given verbal commitments to the Huskies and they’ll likely make it official next month. Recruits can sign binding scholarship papers during the Nov. 12-19 early signing period. Marquese Chriss, a 6-8 forward from Elk Grove, Calif., has also verbally committed to UW.

Murray wore No. 5 last year at Rainier Beach. Nigel Williams-Goss wears No. 5 for Washington, but this could be the last season at UW for the standout sophomore who considered entering the 2014 NBA draft and may likely do so again next year.

This weekend Washington also hosted Eastside Catholic standout Matisse Thybulle and Malik Dime, a junior-college big man.

Thybulle said via Twitter that he planned to make his college choice after his UW visit. He’s also considering Gonzaga.

Dime has visited Iowa State and Arkansas.

SUNDAY AFTERNOON LINKS:

— Here’s the latest 2015 class ranking by 24/7 Sports, which has Arizona at No. 1 and Washington at No. 9.

Insightful Q&A with Arizona coach Sean Miller. The Wildcats are loaded once again and the 45-year-old Miller looks to reach the Final Four for the first time in his distinguished basketball coaching career.

— In addition to team photos, Arizona has a team caricature.

— Oregon State is hosting a tryout for walk-ons. The Beavers have just nine scholarship players and could add as many as four walk-ons their travel squad.

— Oregon is among the final four teams being considered by four-star recruit Christian James.

— Gotta believe that many schools will follow South Carolina, which became the first SEC school to guarantee four-year scholarships to its qualifying NCAA sports.
