UW adds two in 2015

Washington already had a successful 2015 recruiting class, but with two more commitments on Monday, the list of future Huskies is only more impressive.

Washington added to its extremely successful 2015 recruiting class on Monday, picking up a pair of commitments to bolster its frontcourt.

The Huskies got on the board first with a commitment from 6-foot-8, 225-pound Waynesboro (Va.) Fishburne Military School center Devenir Duruisseau.

Moments later, 6-foot-10, 220-pound Ottumwa (Iowa) Indian Hills post Malik Dime committed to Washington as well.

Duruisseau is a skilled big man who is originally from Sylmar (Calif.). He committed to San Jose State as part of the 2014 class but ended up reclassifying and going to prep school at Fishburne.

Dime, originally from Senegal, prepped at Columbus (Ohio) New Hope Christian Academy, before enrolling at Indian Hills. He's considered an athletic post who will finish above the rim and contest shots.

With the additions of Duruisseau and Dime, the Huskies now have a six-man 2015 recruiting class, one that is easily amongst the best nationally.

The two join Elk Grove (Calif.) Pleasant Grove power forward Marquese Chriss as committed front court prospects, and between the three, it seems likely that UW head coach Lorenzo Romar will find a couple players he can rely on. Chriss is a very athletic four man who rebounds, blocks shots and can face up and shoot.

It's Washington's backcourt that really gets you excited for what this class could be. 6-foot-5, 175-pound Seattle Rainier Beach shooting guard Dejounte Murray is one of the nation's top scorers and headlines the Huskies' class.

As good as Murray is as a scorer, 6-foot-6, 185-pound Sammamish (Wash.) Eastside Catholic small forward Matisse Thybulle is just as talented as a defender and rebounder. His versatility will be a valuable commodity in Seattle.

The Huskies also have a commitment from David Crisp, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound point guard from Wolfeboro (N.H.) Brewster Academy, who originally attended Rainier Beach. Crisp is a three-point specialist, who can knock down long distance shots in bunches.

Washington was able to put together a very talented six-man class that offers a bit of everything, from scorers to shooters to defenders to rebounders to athletes. The Huskies locked down the best local talent, but also left the region to find players that fit the program's style of play.

It's a class, should it stick together, that has the talent to make multiple NCAA tournament appearances.
