Washington Basketball Recruiting: Jabari Bird Includes UW In Top Three

A recent interview with Jabari Bird revealed that the five-star basketball recruit has Washington high on his list of possible destinations:

Cal, Arizona and Washington are Bird's favorite three. Recently, Duke assistant Jeff Capel inquired about Bird after seeing him at the City of Palms. UCLA and Oregon are also going after him.

"With Arizona and U-Dub (Washington), two programs right now that can make runs in the tourney," Bird said. "I feel like if I go there, I can help put them over the top." (Via: Five-Star Basketball)

Bird is a 6'6" forward from the Class of 2013. He is currently ranked as the No. 11 best player in ESPNU's Super 60 rankings. Bird currently attends Salesian HS in Richmond, California, the same high school current redshirt freshman Desmond Simmons attended.

He reportedly will not make his decision until the end of next summer according to an earlier report.
