Reason III. Nate Pryor joining the University of Washington Huskies automatically places his name on the national radar.
The University of Washington Men’s Basketball team has made plenty of headlines recently. From the change at the head coaching position, to the exodus of players and prospects alike, the Huskies are getting more than their fair share of press coverage.

Now, don’t consider this THE reason for Pryor’s joining UW. But the fact remains that college basketball is all about headlining. Consider the circus around Michael Porter Jr.’s exodus from the University of Washington to Missouri to play for his father. Despite the certainty of the outcome, plenty of schools sought his participation. Despite no chance at a commitment, plenty of teams threw their hats into the ring.
There will always be value placed upon “getting your name out there”. But especially so in this case.
Against The Grain
With so many talented young men choosing to leave the Washington Huskies, the expectations for the team’s success this season hinges about at the level of enough players to suit up for a game. In short, there are no expectations.
Nate Pryor could pleasantly surprise the nation. Any success for this team will be attributable to the few who chose to align with the Washington Huskies. Should Pryor join, he has no risk and huge rewards to show for it.
Right now, the University of Washington has scholarships. The team has a spot for quality basketball players. And the team has the perfect national platform in their competition in the PAC-12 Conference to showcase players. Nate Pryor would be the perfect player in the recent developments at the University of Washington. Perhaps he already knows that.
After all, he has just reopened his recruitment.
