A great Husky basketball blog that appeared over the summer was MontlakeMadness, and today MontlakeMadness debunked a story by Rivals that said that highly rated Terrence Jones would wait until the spring signing period to announce his college destination.
For Lorenzo Romar it will be a good thing to know if Jones is in the fold or not, especially with the recruitment of Josh Smith still continuing. The Huskies have one more scholarship available for the next recruiting class, and with Desmond Simmons already in the fold, Jones and Smith are the top options for Romar to accept that final spot.
With rumors still circulating that Smith is leaning towards UCLA (I was told two years ago thats where he would likely end up, but obviously things change for teenagers), the recruitment of Jones is incredibly important for Romar. Adding someone of his caliber and talent is needed to continue the recent success of the program.
Should he sign with the Huskies, Jones would instantly fill the starting spot left open by Quincy Pondexter. An opportunity to work with Abdul Gaddy and Isaiah Thomas is probably very intriguing at the moment.
But thanks to MontlakeMadness for the tip.
