Class of 2016 point guard Jermaine Haley has committed to Lorenzo Romar and the University of Washington, according to his AAU coach Pasha Bains.
Bains tweeted out the decision and told multiple media outlets Monday afternoon that Haley will take his talents to Seattle.

Haley, a 6'7 point guard from Burnaby, B.C., Canada, held offers from Arizona State, Ohio State, Louisville, Memphis, Oregon, Utah, Wake Forest, Maryland, UNLV, Virginia Tech, Illinois, Gonzaga, Oregon State and WSU.
His AAU team, DRIVE Basketball, is the same program that incoming freshman Tristan Etienne played for. Haley is not currently ranked by any recruiting services, but judging by his offers, he will find himself in the rankings by the upcoming high school season.
Due to his size and length as a point guard, Haley will draw comparision to Kyle Anderson, but I think he may be a little quicker and more explosive then "Slo-Mo." It is hard to tell how skilled he really is because the level of competition in his Youtube videos is questionable at best.
Let's all remember that the class of 2016 signing day is a long ways away and Haley may never play a minute with the purple and gold.
