2016 recruit Jermaine Haley commits to Washington Huskies


With the July live period coming to an end, Lorenzo Romar and the Washington Huskies picked a huge commitment today from 2016 point guard Jermaine Haley from Burnaby, British Columbia in Canada.

Haley’s AAU coach Pasha Bains confirmed the news to Evan Daniels of Scout.com. This is a huge pickup for the Washington Huskies as Haley is a big point guard and according to Evan Daniels, he has a great feel for the game and can pass the ball.

According to 247 Sports, Haley had 28 schools interested in him but that he cut that list down. According to Scout.com, Haley had cut his down to Memphis, Gonzaga, Arizona, Clemson and USC.

Now if you look at Washington’s roster as currently constructed, they lost their leading scorer in C.J. Wilcox, who was a senior and he averaged 18.3 points per game but they do return now sophomore Nigel Williams-Goss. The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 13.4 points, 4.4 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game. Solid numbers as a freshman and he should only get better.

By time Haley gets to Washington, the team will be loaded as their 2015 class brings in power forward Marquese Chriss, point guard David Crisp, and shooting guard Dejounte Murray as they are three and four star recruits according to Rivals.

Lorenzo Romar is starting build a power in Washington as they try to improve on their 17-15 record from last season.
