Friday marked one of the bigger recruiting days in Washington Huskies history, with UW landing commitments from Terrence Jones (Portland, Ore./Jefferson) and Terrence Ross (Portland, Ore./Jefferson) -- the nation's top two remaining unsigned prospects.

Combining these two players is huge for UW coach Lorenzo Romar. Jones is versatile enough to play either forward position, but he is probably best suited for the 3. Look for Ross to play the 2. They will play next to returning sophomore Abdul Gaddy, who saw major minutes at the point as a freshman. With those three, Washington should have one of the most talented perimeters in the country.

Jones will fit well in the Huskies' up-tempo offense. He is so hard to stop in transition; he goes to the rim with determination and has good body control. It will be tough for teams to key in on Jones with Gaddy and Ross also on the court.
