The Huskies signed two quality players this week from the 2013 recruiting class. Could more be on the way?
Washington basketball secured two big commitments this week as Nigel Williams-Goss and Darin Williams signed their Letters of Intent to become Huskies. Both players were verbally committed to UW, although now they are now officially the newest members of the program.
Williams-Goss is a four-star guard who could play point guard in college. He hails from Findlay Prep in Henderson, NV, which is one of the elite prep basketball academies in the country. He is a consensus top-100 recruit, and Rivals has him as the 61st best prospect in the 2013 class.
Johnson, a 6'4 guard out of Sacramento, is a solid shooter and should bring a lot of energy onto the court whenever he plays. He is a three-star recruit according to Rivals. Here is what he had to say to the Seattle Times after signing his LOI on Thursday.
"I see myself fitting in very well there because the things they do I like to do," Johnson said. "That was big for me. Finding a place where I can play my game. And finding a coach that I could relate to and get to know."
It is unclear how many more players coach Lorenzo Romar will take in this class, although five-star forward Aaron Gordon remains the top target. Gordon recently narrowed his list down to Arizona, Kentucky and Washington.
