No. 5, Michael Porter, commits to Washington

Lorenzo Romar picked up a commitment from Scout's No. 5 player -- Michael Porter -- on Friday.

The No. 5 player in the 2017 class is headed to Washington.

Michael Porter verbally committed to his Godfather, Lorenzo Romar, on Friday. Porter had his pick of schools but opted for the family atmosphere at Washington.

Porter's father, Michael Porter Sr., was recently hired as an assistant coach at Washington. His brother, Jontay Porter, is a four-star recruit in 2018 and is already committed to UW.

The Huskies now hold three pledges in the 2017 class. Top 100 wing Jaylen Nowell and three-star point guard Blake Harris make up their current class. 

Porter ranks as the top small forward prospect in the 2017 class.
