The Washington Huskies have added their third 2015 commitment to their already rabidly improving program. Joining the 2015 class, which includes four-star prospect Marquese Chriss and David Crisp, is four-star prospect Dejounte Murray.
Arizona, Gonzaga, Oregon, USC and Washington State were all possible landing sports for Murray, but the Washington native decided to stay home and play for, well, um, Washington.
Hailing from the city of Seattle, Dejounte Murray averaged 11.0 points, 6.4 boards, 2.4 assists and 1.1 steals per game for Northwest Xpress in the Nike EYBL.
According to Rivals, Murray is the 78th best prospect in the entire 2015 class. While I don’t put too much stock into a high school player’s “grading” via recruiting service websites, they are usually pretty accurate when it comes to players of some relevance. Which, clearly, Murray seems to be.
This is another good get for Washington’s 2015 class. Chriss also happens to be a four-star recruit. Which means that the Huskies have already received commitments from two four-star level players. Considering there is approximately three billion Division I college basketball teams, that is not too shabby for a program who isn’t perceived as being all that and a bag of chips.
Time will tell if any of the recruits pan out, but there is good reason for positive thinking in Washington.
