Washington offers 2015 SG Matisse Thybulle, two others

Catching up on the recruiting news from the past week.

In the past week, Lorenzo Romar has sent out offers to three different perimeter players, and has also been put back in the hunt for another top-rated recruit (but don't get your hopes up).

Tyler Dorsey out of Bellflower, Calif. is a 2015 guard who has seen his stock drop a little bit recently. His split from Arizona was to be expected. Before his commitment to play for Sean Miller, he held offers from over a dozen different schools, including top programs Duke, Florida and reigning champion UConn. One of those programs was the Washington Huskies.

A four-star or five-star recruit depending on who you ask, Dorsey is a 6'4 combo guard with the ability to distribute the basketball along with excellent speed to get to the rim and also pull up for a jumper. Basically, he has the skill set of a  prototypical combo guard, with the size of a small wing instead of a big-ish point guard.

While Dorsey probably won't end up at UW, he is another potential recruit in the Class of 2015 that is actually full, unless somebody transfers, decommits or leaves Washington in some other fashion.

Matisse Thybulle | 2015 SG, Sammamish, Wash.

Thybulle is a Class of 2015 player who held zero D-I offers on the table prior to Romar's offer. He is regarded as one of the better sleeper prospects out west, using a versatile game to affect the game in multiple ways. His shooting could use some work, but as a long (6'7) wing with the ability to distribute the ball and get to the rim, he has a lot going for him.

Now, as with Dorsey, there are no spots currently available for another Class of 2015 recruit. I don't know what sort of Romar Math would have to take place, but I would take a guess it rhymes with barracks (that's the best I could do, I'm sorry).

There are two other offers that happened in the past week. Zach Collins out of Las Vegas, Nev. picked up and offer from the Huskies. Collins is a 6'10 PF/C who holds offers from Arizona, Oklahoma and quite a few others. He still has time to top seven feet tall. As of right now, he is a rim-level player who still needs to work at getting above the rim more often, but has the ability to be an impact player on a D-I program.

Collins is 2016, as well as JaQuori McLaughlin out of Gig Harbor, Wash. A 6'3 lead guard, McLaughlin was previously committed to Oregon State, but changed his mind after the firing of Craig Robinson.
