It's a rite of passage for hoops heads: Scout.com has updated its top 100 basketball prospect recruiting rankings after the season season. It's fair to say that 2011 is a shallow class for Pacific Northwest talent, with only two players from Washington and Oregon ranked in the top 100.
But those two players -- Kyle Wiltjer from Portland, OR, and Seattle's own Tony Wroten, Jr. -- both figure to have big impacts on the next level. As such both Wiltjer (No. 19) and Wroten (No. 27) find themselves in Scout's top 30.
Percy Allen of the Seattle Times notes that head coach Lorenzo Romar and the University of Washington are pursuing both local players.
--- Romar and assistants Paul Fortier and Raphael Chillious were spotted at Friday's UW's football practice chatting with Tony Wroten Sr., the father of Garfield High's incoming senior Tony Wroten.
--- Add Kyle Wiltjer, the 6-9, 235 pound power forward out of Portland to the list of recruits who've received an offer from Washington. He told Scout.com, he' s also gotten an offer from Kentucky, UCLA, Virginia and Georgia Tech.
Three other players on Scout.com's Top 100 list have listed Washington among their schools of interest. They are...
- Shooting Guard Jabari Brown, ranked No. 14
- Power Forward Angelo Chol, ranked No. 54
- Power Forward Norvel Pelle, ranked No. 57
Both Brown and Wiltjer are also considering the University of Oregon.
No player in Scout.com's Top 100 has listed Washington State as a school of interest.
For everything Huskies basketball, head over SB Nation's UW Dawg Pound.
