Michael Porter Jr. commits to Washington

Seven whole days after Michael Porter Jr. said Washington isn’t a sure thing and he wants to take things slow, Michael Porter Jr. committed to Washington.

The five-star prospect, a contender for the No. 1 overall ranking, committed to the Huskies tonight via Twitter.

His father, Michael Porter Sr., was hired on as an assistant coach with the program earlier this year. It also helps that Lorenzo Romar is his godfather.

I guess this means we’ll never hear from him again until draft night. That’s kind of how it works with Washington.

    His games won’t be seen back east because everyone is in bed asleep when he plays, no exposure or national TV at Washington. Keep this in mine Trey Young!

    Actually they are on quite often via one of the ESPN channels and the PAC 12 channel.

      They are, I watched them often when they had Nigel-Goss as their point guard cause I had seen him play in several tournaments in Florida when he was a FR or SO at Findlay Prep. Plus there was not much else on at 10:30-1 at night and I love college bball.

    And going to UW can’t be too detrimental to one’as career as they had 2 first round draft picks this year – same as UK.-

      Yep, and those kids were not Micky D all american, 5 star, lottery picks from high school like our guys were. Guess that can only mean if you want to get to the NBA go to Washington as Romar puts kids in the NBA….See how stupid that sounds yet we all think Cal is the reason our guys go. He recruits NBA talent, normally, not develops it. Look at all the projected 1st rounder and lottery guys that came to Cal that are lucky to see the DLeague. Twins, Young, Poy to name a few. Lee was here and showed no improvement. He is great at recruiting NBA talent, normally, but has had a few misses in judgement.

      Do the names Carmelo Travieso, Edgar Padilla, Donta Bright, Dana Dingle, Rigoberto Nuñez, Tyrone Weeks, or Inus Norville ring a bell at all?

    Romar will continue to send talent to the NBA but not to the NCAA tourney. Johnny Jones’ roll model.
