Washington Basketball Recruiting 2012: Demarquise Johnson Leaves Town Without Committing

The Washington Huskies are in the midst of putting together their class of 2012, and one of the team's top targets is Phoenix resident Demarquise Johnson. Johnson paid Washington a visit this past weekend but left without committing, according to Ryan Greene of the Las Vegas Sun.

 The 6-foot-5 athlete, ranked 77th overall by Rivals.com, is a guard/forward at Arizona's Westwind Preparatory School. He has narrowed his list of schools down to four finalists: UNLV, Gonzaga, Washington and Washington State. Johnson visited UNLV unofficially in August, and he is set to visit the Rebels on a weekend-long official event in early October.

This is not good news for the Huskies. Washington's lack of a commitment from Johnson and the upcoming official visit together imply that Johnson may be leaning toward UNLV as his final destination. Nothing is final yet, but the Huskies will have to make a late run in the coming month in order to have a shot at one of their top targets.
