Lorenzo Romar is in the hunt for the best hoops recruits in the country. For more on Washington basketball recruiting, head to UW Dawg Pound.
Lorenzo Romar is really good at recruiting. Spencer Hawes, Quincy Pondexter, Matthew Bryan-Amaning, Isaiah Thomas, Abdul Gaddy, Terrence Ross, Aziz N'Diaye, Tony Wroten, Jr. are some of the many notables that have become Washington Huskies over the past half-decade, and are looking to either make their mark in or their way into the NBA
UW basketball always seems to be in the mix for some of the best talents. One of the best players in the upcoming years is Jabari Bird from Salesian, who will be entering his junior season in the 2013 campaign. Bird is the 21st best player according to Rivals and the 11th best player (and 3rd best shooting guard) according to ESPN. His highlights reveal explosive athleticism and an ability to hit shots from plenty of spots on the floor.
Bird has reiterated on multiple occasions that Cal, Washington, and Arizona are the three leaders, and he maintained that opinion as recently as last week.
