The Washington Basketball recruiting efforts multitask both 2018 and 2019 classes
The Washington Basketball coaching staff has been set with more “To Do” items than most NCAA coaches face. Since the hiring of Coach Mike Hopkins, the tasks have mounted on all fronts. Players departed, forcing the team to recruit to the current class. The team is switching schemes, forcing the coaches to work hard at easing players into the new regiment, all the while explaining in detail to ensure their buy in.
Finally, the coaches needed to fill roster spots. The immediate need of filling openings culminated in the coaches pulling off a nearly miraculous recruiting class of point guard Michael Carter III, 4-star shooting guard Jaylen Nowell, 2-star point guard Nate Pryor, 3-star small forward Nahziah Carter, and four-star small forward/ power forward Hameir Wright.
This was quite a coup by a hard working coaching staff who truly needed good prospects to compete in the Pac-12 this year.
