While it is still very early in the recruiting process, now is around the time of year that schools first start focusing on sophomores in a more serious manner. Often times that leads to more offers and programs getting involved with players' camps before they are allowed to contact them directly in June.

For Nathan Hale (WA) guard P.J. Fuller, things have begun to get interesting. The 6-foot-3 Seattle guard has begun to pick up significant interest playing on what appears to be Washington's top program. An explosive athlete and scorer, Fuller has cemented himself as one of the top sophomores in the country. He first burst onto the national scene as a rising freshman when his family sent him accross the country to Future150 Atlanta Camp and dominated against older competition. 

"I think I try to model my game after Russell Westbrook. I didn't get a chance to do it too much today, but I like to get out and push it and get out on the break," he said. 

The Future150 alumnus is enjoying the process, and already seems like there may be two Pac-12 programs that are prioritizing him more than others. What makes it more interesting is that the interest is definitetly mutual.

Andy Enfield and the USC Trojans are his most recent offer, and certainly feel like they could be in the mix until the end, given his tie to the program.

"I just got an offer from USC like a week ago. I was really excited because I'm really close with Nick Young and I really like the coaching staff there, and I like the California schools," said Fuller.

Like any other Washington native, the idea of staying home to play his college ball is something that really intrigues Fuller as well. Throw in the fact that Nathan Hale boasts two UW commits and that he's coached by former Husky great Brandon Roy, and it appears the hometown team may have an early lead. 

"I love Seattle. I put Seattle over everything, I love the coaching  staff at the University of Washington and I love the University of Washington as a whole, but I'm not afraid to go out and see what else is out there," he said. 

Joining the two Pac-12 programs in offering him are Montana and TCU, while Florida State has been in contact recently as well. After a decent performace at The HoopHall Classic, it seems like more offers could be on the way, and it will be interesting to see if USC and UW can remain near the top of the list once others come calling.
