Is Enes Kanter a Sure Thing for UW?


Scroll down for our preview of Thursday’s game against Stanford.

Highly touted Turkish center, Enes Kanter, announced back in November that he’d be coming to Washington to play next season. Since then, there hasn’t been a lot of news about Kanter, which isn’t unusual since we’re in a period in between the early signing period and the spring period.

This week, though, on their pay sites, and there are whispers that Kanter may not easily be cleared to play in the NCAA, and worse, he may soon re-open his recruitment to other schools.

The eligibility question stems from the fact that Kanter has played for a professional team in Turkey, something the NCAA will need to examine.

I hate reporting rumors as anything more than that, so I’ll keep my ear out and write more when I hear more.

Here’s our profile of Kanter.

Thanks for coming!
