The Washington Huskies coaching staff is on a roll with their 2015 recruiting class. So far the coaching staff has received commitments from Dejounte Murray, David Crisp, and Marquese Chriss. The Huskies just recieved yet another commitment from 2015 Matisse Thybulle from Eastside Catholic who chose Washington over Gonzaga.
Thybulle's confidence grew last year in the state playoffs and he has continued to grow in the EYBL circuit. The young man has nice size to him at 6'7. Thybulle is the type of player that should excel in Coach Romar's system. A long wing with quick bounce, can take an opponent off the drible, rebounds well, athletic, and can shoot it.
Left Coast Recruiting caught up with Thybulle to talk about his commitment. Here is what Thybulle had to say:
"It was tough but I want to go to Washington. I feel that I can excel in Romar's program and he has the track record of sending wings like me to the NBA. If I don't excel in basketball, I feel that the degree I am aiming for, which is sports marketing, will help me out in getting a job if basketball doesn't work out. The Pac-12 sent the most players in the NBA last year and that stood out to me. My family and friends will be able to see me play too. I really liked Gonzaga but at the end of it all I will be a Husky."
The Huskies may not be finished. They hosted Malik Dime, a 6'8 power forward who attends Indiana Hills Communit College in Iowa over the weekend on an official visit.
