The 2014 season hasn't even started (The Huskies play South Carolina State on Friday) but many fans will already be looking forward to next year as the men's basketball team received National Letters of Intent from six recruits on Wednesday, making up arguably the best recruiting class of the Lorenzo Romar era.

The Huskies received agreements from all six of their recruits who had already verbally committed to the UW, five high school players and one junior college transfer, giving Husky fans something to be excited about and making Romar's "hot seat" a little bit cooler.
