Abdul Gaddy to Washington

Abdul Gaddy, the 6-3 Point Guard ranked #2 as Point Guard on Scout and #2 on Rivals committed to Washington tonight.

 Scout writes:

A week ago Abdul Gaddy, the 6-3 elite point guard from Tacoma (Wash.) Bellarmine Prep, learned he wouldn't be playing for Lute Olson at Arizona. On Tuesday, the country learned that he'll be playing in the Pac-10 but for another program, and it's not UCLA...

Rivals also reports:

Hopefully three is a charm for Abdul Gaddy. After committing twice and decommitting twice from Arizona, the 6-foot-3, 170-pound point guard from Tacoma (Wash.) Bellarmine Prep High School has settled on a school.

Update 1:

The Seattle Times has an article up with some quotes from Gaddy Sr:

"We came back to the drawing board and (UW) coach (Lorenzo) Romar has always been there," Gaddy Sr. said. "He's followed him since he was a freshman in highs school. And it will be a great opportunity to play in front of family and friends. It was just kind of a no-brainer at the end."

"He's not going to be a one-and-done kid," Gaddy Sr. said. "So he's excited to go play there and have that opportunity to have a degree. This will be an opportunity to spread his wings a little bit but not be too far away."

Tough loss, but the kid gets to be a hometown hero and play for his local team. Hopefully the decision works out for him and he is happy being a Husky.
