Garfield's four-star shooting guard Jaylen Nowell, rated at 86 and #56 on the ESPN Top 100 basketball recruits list, announced via Twitter on Tuesday that he is staying with the Washington Huskies, despite the University's firing Lorenzo Romar and hiring Mike Hopkins.
Scout currently lists Nowell (6'4, 185) as #19 shooting guard in the country and #2 in the state of Washington as part of the class of 2017. He signed with Washington in June 2016 but said today, "I have decided to put my faith back into my city and remain a Husky."
