This is now

Ultimately, the players who left have been replaced.  Coach Hopkins wasted almost no time in recruiting a new class as follows:

  • Hameir Wright Small Forward 6-foot-7 203 pounds Albany, NY
  • Michael Carter III Shooting Guard 6-foot-5 180 pounds Seattle, WA
  • Jaylen Nowell Shooting Guard 6-foot-5 191 pounds Seattle, WA Garfield High School
  • Nate Pryor Point Guard 6-foot-1 165 pounds Seattle WA
  • Nahziah Carter Small Forward 6-foot-6 185 pounds Rochester NY

While its not something many will cover, I will be curious all season as to the outcome. Is the University of Washington better off now?

Well, we know that several players came right out and stated that they would stay. Those players include David Crisp, Matisse Thybulle, and Carlos JohnsonNoah Dickerson, however, was on the fence at first before deciding to make his stand with the Washington Huskies.  To those players, they have earned our respect and applause.

What of the players who exited? Are they getting strong basketball play elsewhere? Since I will be curious, I’m guessing there may be some other fans who are as well. Let’s dive right in then shall we?
