The Washington Huskies basketball team seems to be pretty close to striking out on the 2012 recruiting trail (not like they need to pick up that many players this season, but still). So it's time to start trying to mine for gold in 2013 for the top recruits in the country.
One of UW's biggest targets Aaron Gordon, the big man from Archbishop Mitty in San Jose, California, is considered one of the most extremely talented individuals out there, and seems like the sort of open-court player that would thrive in Lorenzo Romar's system. Gordon has a top 5 of Arizona, Kansas, Oregon, Stanford, and Washington, and it appears his interest in the Huskies is genuine. He visited Seattle unofficially this past weekend.
Here are Gordon's summer highlights by the way. You might want to take a look at him.
Look at that athleticism. Don't you think Romar is telling Gordon that he'll get to play in this type of system if he comes to Seattle? Gordon to the Pac-12 (and a team like Washington) would be the perfect type of star for the conference to market under the new TV deal for basketball.
