Marquese Chriss commits to Washington

After a dour start to the season, Washington is trending up recently. The Huskies (11-6) are 3-1 in the Pac-12 and tied for third-place in the conference standings.

After Sunday’s win over then-No.15 Colorado, they received a verbal commitment from Rainier Beach High senior point guard David Crisp, a 2015 prospect.

And Monday evening, Washington picked up another 2015 prospect – Marquese Chriss, a 6-8, 200-pound forward from Elk Grove, Calif.

After failing to land the bonanza 2013 class that he envisioned, coach Lorenzo Romar made a slight shift in recruiting strategy. Rather than wait until the final days for a handful of McDonald’s high school All-Americans, the Huskies are going to secure several top prospects early.

Landing Chriss is the latest example of UW’s new recruiting policy.
