Seattle, WA (Future150) -- The Huskies already have four commits, one of which is a top five prospect in the nation. What do these four bring to the table? Can the Washington staff expect to land any other recruits in the 2017 class? 


Michael Porter6'9" Wing Guard, Columbia (MO): The #3 overall prospect in our 2017 rankings, Michael Porter is easily the crown jewel of this class and is a potential top ten pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. He has fantastic size at 6'9" to be playing on the wing and has the potential to be a defensive nightmare with his length and high motor. He should be one of the go to options on the offensive end during his freshman (and very possibly only) season at Washington. Enjoy him while you have him UW fans!

Jaylen Nowell6'4" Shooting Guard, Seattle (WA): Arguably the best guard in the state of Washington, Nowell will bring immediate help on offense. He has a beautiful jumpshot that he is capable of knocking down from all over the floor, and if you give him any room in the lane he will not hesistate to smash a dunk on the defenders head. Another big time pipeline recruit that Coach Romar and his staff made sure they closed out on. 

Blake Harris6'3" Point Guard, Raleigh (NC): Another explosive athlete headed to Seattle. Harris is known for his creativeness when it comes to finishing around the rim, and his solid court vision. He may not have as big of an impact his freshman year as Nowell and Porter, but make no mistake he will have an impact during his years in a Husky jersey. 

Mamadou Diarra, 6'9" Forward, St. Louis (MO): Diarra probably won't have too much of an impact his freshman season, but UW fans still have a reason to get excited about the Mali native. A versatile, athletic combo forward, once he adds some more strength, and polishes his skills a little more he could turn out to be a very good four year guy. With his great length and high motor, he could definitely turn out to be a double-double machine. 



Coach Romar and the rest of the Husky staff haven't handed out too many offers in this class. The remaining uncommited prospects that hold a UW offer include Future150 alum Trae YoungCharles O'Bannon Jr.Kris Wilkes, and Daejon Davis. While there has been some buzz around Young about Washington being a very possible destination, nothing is for sure. The Huskies are still on the list for the other three guys, but they all seem like a longshot at this point. Either way Washington has a loaded class as it is, and adding another one of these guys would make it even more ridiculous.
