Probably another year of mediocrity, but there is one bright spot this year, and his name is Markelle Fultz. Already projected as a top 5 pick for next year. The highest and most decorated hoops recruit to ever come to Washington.
The season starts tomorrow against Yale. Unfortunately, they play at 4PM right before the Seahawks so I doubt anyone will watch. I'll watch Fultz up until the Hawks game starts.
Next year will be "the year." As of now we have the #2 recruiting class for 2017, led by Michael Porter Jr who is ranked as the #2 player in the 2017 class. He is the real deal, and you can see him play his HS basketball at Nathan Hale (who is coached by former UW and NBA player Brandon Roy).
If Fultz does come back next year, we will likely be a favorite to make the final four. But that is a big questionmark, most everyone expects Fultz to jump to the NBA, but he is a different type of kid, I wouldn't be shocked if he came back for another year.
