UW already has the #3 ranked kid signed for next season, Isaiah Stewart. I've heard that in the last few days Jaden McDaniels, the #8 ranked kid from Federal Way, has flipped from Kentucky to UW, and is expected to play for UW next season. That would give Hop two top 10 kids. No other school can say they have two top 10 kids for this years recruiting class. UW also has a former 5 star transfer, Quade Green, coming in next season from Kentucky. Huskies would basically be adding three, five star kids. From what I've heard, Nowell is gone, so that does hurt. However, there is a possibility that Lynden's Cole Bajema gets out of his LOI with Michigan and comes to UW since the HC of Michigan left for the NBA.
The team will be big time next season. If Nowell came back I'd say they would be a final four contender, but youth could hold them back. Either way they will be a lot of fun to watch next season.
