Tony Wroten Jr. Narrows to Kentucky and Washington
ESPN.com’s Diamond Leung is reporting that Tony Wroten Jr. has named the two schools he is going to pick from. Seems like it could be deja blue all over again.
Tony Wroten Jr., one of the best point guard recruits in the nation, has reportedly narrowed his choices to two schools — Kentucky and Washington.
Wroten currently plays for Garfield High in Seattle, but the situation seems to have Terrence Jones saga written all over it. Kentucky coach John Calipari has lured one recruit out of the Pacific Northwest and can certainly do it again.
Not that Wroten plans on [URL="http://espn.go.com/blog/collegebasketballnation/post/_/id/11644/terrence-jones-not-regretting-news-conference"][COLOR=#225db7]pulling a Jones[/COLOR][/URL] or anything in terms of going back and forth on a decision, as [URL="http://www.kjram.com/cc-common/mediaplayer/player.html?redir=yes&mps=softyplayer.php&mid=http://media.ccomrcdn.com/media/station_content/645/FAIN_6_30_10_Wroten_1277928250_29825.mp3?CPROG=PCAST?CCOMRRMID&CPROG=RICHMEDIA&MARKET=SEATTLE-WA&NG_FORMAT=&NG_ID=&OR_NEWSFORMAT=&OWNER=&SERVER_NAME=www.950kjr.com&SITE_ID=645&STATION_ID=KJR-AM&TRACK="][COLOR=#225db7]he told KJR[/COLOR][/URL]:
“I’m not going to do UW dirty like that. Whenever I choose my school, I’m going to go with that decision. I ain’t going to put on the hat and then change the next day. I’m not like that.”

I wonder how Terrence Jones feels about Wroten’s statement? Probably doesn’t matter since Jones will probably be in the NBA Draft if Wroten does end up coming to Lexington. It doesn’t sound like Wroten is going to pull any shananigans with his recruitment. It is very interesting that Kentucky and Washington will be going head to head again for another top recruit. I like Wroten’s flair, but showing so much bravado off the court and on twitter might be seen as a weakness to NBA scouts, just ask DeMarcus Cousins. True or not, it doesn’t really matter, because how you portray yourself could lead the media to paint a picture a player could have a hard time shaking.
