Abdul Gaddy Commits to Washington

PG Abdul Gaddy Jr  from Tacoma's Bellarmine HS has committed to Washington according to various sources. The number two point guard in the country had originally decided on going to Arizona but the retirement of Lute Olsen nixed that deal.

Gaddy grew up playing with current Husky guard Isiah Thomas in area youth leagues and he is looking forward to playing again with his former back court partner.

The state's player of the year as a junior last season, Gaddy was at the top of many a recruiter's wish list. He averaged 26 points and 7 assists per game for a 25-4 team that advanced to the Class 4A state semifinals before losing to eventual champion Ferris. He averaged 20 points an outing as a sophomore.

Other players committed are power forward Clarence Trent, formerly of Gig Harbor High and now Findlay Prep School in Henderson, Nev.; power forward Charles Garcia of San Francisco City College; and shooting guard C.J. Wilcox of Pleasant Grove High in Pleasant Grove, Utah.

There are rumors going around that Gaddy is a one and out type of guy but he insists he wants to stay around 2-3 years to work on his game. The signing is a coup for Lorenzo Romar who was in danger of being shut out in his pursuit of the best prospects in Washington this season.
