Washington660

After popping early for Arizona State, Hazen (WA) wing forward Dominic Green played out his senior season with the expectation he’d play Pac-12 hoops in Tempe.

Green’s heart was close to his home, though, as he popped for the Washington Huskies, over Washington State, on Sunday. Green announced his decision via ... Read More »

Michigan660

The Michigan Wolverines added a second member to their 2016 recruiting class, picking up a commitment from 6′-10″ in-state prospect Austin Davis of Ostego (MI). Davis joins Ohio prospect Jon Testa in the early haul for the Wolverines. Michigan was one of the worst rebounding teams nationally during the 2014-2015 season, and it’s clear the coaching staff is putting a pipeline of big men into place so that doesn’t happen again. As a junior, Davis averaged 27 points, 17 ... Read More »
