University of Washington Huskies releases Point Guard Blake Harris from his 2017 National Letter of Intent
The University of Washington Huskies Basketball Program should brace for the sudden fall from high altitude. You knew it was not good when moments after the head coach names his coaching staff, an announcement is made that he is meeting with one of his recruits.
The meeting was clearly about the mindset of 2017 point guard Blake Harris. In the changing of the guards at the UW MBB head coach from Lorenzo Romar, players get uneasy. Some stay. Some go. Some straddle the fence in a “wait and see” holding pattern.
Point guard Blake Harris went.

Per 247Sports.com, Blake Harris is a 4-star rated point guard hailing from Chapel Hill, NC.
Originally projected to commit to the more local Wake Forest, Harris was recruited by Lorenzo Romar who believed he was undervalued.
"“Romar said during last season that Harris would have been the best passer he ever coached."

Further in his article, Caple reveals that 5-star, 2018 guard prospect Immanuel Quickley tweeted that he is no longer considering the University of Washington Huskies. There is every reason to expect the University of Washington Huskies to offer the same “out” to Michael Porter Jr.
This comes with the territory. In fact, it’s expected. That is why UW AD Jennifer Cohen addressed the matter instantly.
While the 2017 recruiting class the highest rated class ever assembled in school history, the University ceased believing the team would prosper under Lorenzo Romar. Now, with Mike Hopkins, the recruiting class will likely disband to other college programs.
No other official word is available on the status of other 2017 players: Michael Porter Jr., Daejon Davis, Jaylen Nowell, nor Mamoudou Diarra. Some will hopefully choose to remain and have as much faith in the University of Washington as the University of Washington has in them.
