On the court the Huskies have been making great strides in the past couple of weeks as they've gotten off to a hot start in Pac-12 play.  They've been just as hot off the court as they land their 2nd commitment in the last two days for the 2015 class as highly touted F prospect Marquese Chriss picked the Huskies tonight after returning home from his official visit this past weekend:

In Chriss the Huskies get an athletic big man who should prove to be a good fit for Romar's system.  He's also the highest rated front-court player Romar has landed since at least 2007 (Matthew Bryan-Amaning) and a consensus 4-star recruit.  He's a skinny kid at 6'8" and 200 lbs, but very athletic.  He has terrific bounce and range out to the 3-point line, but like a lot of young forwards he needs to develop a low-post game.  Check out some highlights:
