Haley commits to Washington
It only took Washington a day to strike. Just one day removed from the July evaluation period Lorenzo Romar and his staff at Washington picked up a commitment from Jermaine Haley, a 6-foot-7 point guard out of Canada. Pasha Bains, who coaches Haley for the Drive Elite AAU program, confirmed the news to Scout.com. “At the end of the day it was a perfect fit at Washington,” Bains told Scout.com. “It's close to home. Coach Romar has a great history of developing guards and helping them make the NBA." “They have Tristan [Etienne] there that was in our Drive program,” he added. “That would be great for Jermaine to have someone to look up to.” Haley had his list down to Memphis and Gonzaga. Arizona, Clemson and USC had also recently offered him a scholarship. “We have a lot of Northwest pride and it feels good to be close to home,” Bains said. “Jermaine has played his whole life in Seattle. He wants to be part of the future of the Washington Huskies.” “He had a lot of really good options and it speaks well for the Washington program that he had all these options,” Bains added. Lorenzo Romar did a great job targeting and developing a relationship with Haley early. The Huskies have had him on campus multiple times. “He took a visit there recently and he's been able to establish a really good relationship with coach Romar,” Bains said. “One thing that tipped it off was coach Romar and his staff were at every single one of his games this summer.” “Jermaine is very comfortable with him,” he said. “He feels like he really wants him.” Haley isn't currently ranked in Scout.com's top 75 in 2016, but that will change when the post-July rankings are updated.
