Recruiting Bites: Washington makes Cheatham's top five

USA TODAY Sports

2014 UW target Zylan Cheatham cut his list down to five schools on Sunday evening.

Washington remains in the race for 2014 recruit Zylan Cheatham. The 6-foot-8 forward cut his list down to five schools via Twitter on Sunday night:

Cheatham also confirmed with me last night that he plans on taking an official visit to Washington on September 28th. Interestingly enough, his visit will coincide with the football team's home game against Arizona ā€“ Cheatham lives in Phoenix, Arizona. He also plans on visiting San Diego St. on September 7 and New Mexico on October 8, and then will make his final decision on his birthday, November 17.

I have confirmed with several sources that Cheatham's trainer and main advisor, Gabe Stevens, was actually college roommates with Huskies assistant basketball coach TJ Otzelberger. It is an intriguing connection and is something to keep in mind regarding Cheatham's recruitment.

Here is some other Washington recruiting news:

  • Josh Martin, a 2014 forward, cut down his list to Florida St., Oklahoma St., Minnesota, Pittsburgh and Washington. He has a visit set up to Florida St. in the second week of September and also plans on visiting Minnesota in September as well.
  • Priority recruit, 2015 guard Allonzo Trier, announced he will be transferring to Montrose Christian in Maryland ā€“ the same school NBA star Kevin Durant once attended. Trier was attending NOAH HomeSchool in Oklahoma before making the decision to leave Oklahoma. There were rumors Trier was attempting to enroll at Seattle's Garfield HS, but those were put to rest last week. Here is a recently released highlight tape of Trier.
  • Former Husky guard Tony Wroten Jr. is holding an invite-only high school camp at Garfield HS for 30 local prospects at the end of the month from August 29 through 31. Recently committed Donaven Dorsey is slated to attend along with UW recruits: 2015 Dejounte Murray and 2016 Isiah Brown.
