JaQuori McLaughlin, a standout 2016 basketball prospect, will announce his college choice Saturday.

The 6-3, 170-pound shooting guard from Gig Harbor gave a verbal commitment to Oregon State before re-opening his recruitment when the Beavers fired coach Craig Robinson.

McLaughlin will choose between Washington, Arizona and Oregon. He also considered Washington State, Boise State and Memphis.

McLaughlin, who averaged 19.6 points, 3.3 assists and 4.1 steals as a sophomore at Peninsula High, is considered the top junior prospect in the state. He’s also considered a consensus four-star recruit by ESPN, Scout and Rivals.

Scout ranks him 60th in the nation and the 11th among shooting guards. Rivals has him 91st nationally and 28th at his position.

Washington does not have a verbal commitment from a 2016 prospect. Jermaine Haley, a 6-7 and four-star guard from Burnaby, British Columbia, re-opened his recruitment after verbally committing to the Huskies in July.

Meanwhile, Washington compiled a touted 2015 signing class that includes: Guards Dejounte Murray and David Crisp, small forward Matisse Thybulle, power forwards Marquese Criss and Devenir Duruisseau and junior-college center Malik Dime.

Here’s video highlights of McLaughlin (below).
