Yesterday it was reported that Lorenzo Romar was spotted at Terrence Jones’ football game in Portland, meaning that the Washington head coach had successfully traveled to Oregon for an in-home visit with Jones.
Jones is one of the highly rated recruits remaining in the 2010 class and is considering schools such as Oklahoma, UCLA, Kentucky, North Carolina, Kansas, and a handful of other schools that include Washington.
North Carolina was scheduled to be the next visitor for Jones, but apparently the Tar Heels will not be making the trip to Portland to try and sway the athletic forward to the east coast.
Now immediately coming off an in-home visit this is good news for Husky fans.
There are two ways to take this news, with the first being that Jones loved his visit so much with Romar that he canceled his visit with the North Carolina coaches because he has either cut his list down or made Washington his favorite.
The second being that North Carolina no longer feels they have a legitimate shot with Jones and have removed themselves from the process. Having the defending national champions no longer in the running should allow Washington fans to get a little more excited about the possibilities of landing Jones.
No matter what the specific reasons are for Jones no longer having an in-home with North Carolina, what is known is that it definitely does not hurt Washington.
