Before I start this, I want to give credit to a great Gonzaga blog, The Slipper Still Fits. I am kind of taking their format from their recruiting post and applying it to Husky basketball. So before you read this, maybe go over there and give them some props for what they've done. Here is what the Husky roster will look like after the end of next season in 2010:
Matthew Bryan-Amaning F
Justin Holiday F
Charles Garcia F
Venoy Overton G
Darnell Gant F
Scott Suggs F
Elston Turner G/F
Isaiah Thomas G
Clarence Trent F
CJ Wilcox G
Abdul Gaddy G
The Huskies have already signed Desmond Simmons as their first recruit of the class of 2010. That leaves the Huskies with 12 scholarship players on their roster, leaving one scholarship left.
Here are the players Romar is taking a look at to fill in that last scholarship spot on his roster:
Josh Smith is not even a senior in high school yet, but SeaTown Sports has had ample coverage on the 6-foot-9, 270 pound center from Kentwood High School. He already has over a dozen offers on the table from all prestigious college programs. However, do not be surprised if Romar and his staff are able to lure this highly-coveted recruit.
Like Jon Brockman, Smith is the type of guy that would not mind staying at home. From the people we have talked to, UCLA and UW seem to be at the top of his list at this point. Smith is currently ranked as the second best center prospect in the nation, and is our number one player in the state of Washington at this time. Smith is a very rare prospect, and might be a one-in-done guy.
From a scouting perspective, his physical presence makes Spencer Hawes look like a stick. He looks like more of a dominant player on the boards. He look more talented offensively than Kevin Love was coming out of high school.
