Hoophall: Washington commit Jontay Porter may enroll early

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- Junior forward Jontay Porter is debating a move to the 2017 class to potentially play with his brother -- Michael Porter.

Washington junior commit Jontay Porter is considering a move to the 2017 class.

“It’s not a done deal or anything,” Porter said. “I have to sit down with my parents and discuss the pros and cons, but it’s definitely an option.” http://www.scout.com/player/199754-jontay-porter

Porter’s older brother – Michael – is in the 2017 class and is a Washington signee. The move is intriguing to the younger Porter so the two can play together.

“I feel like I’m personally better when Michael is on the court,” he said. “We kind of feed off each other, so that would definitely be another pro of going early.”

Porter said everything is in place academically for the move to be made, it’s just a matter of opting to do it or not.

Outside of potentially getting to play with his brother, Porter likes the idea of potentially getting to college early to get in shape.

“One I could get in early with the college coaches and get my body right and get my game improved and try and get ready for the next level after that,” he said.

Porter is regarded as the No. 51 overall recruit and the No. 12 power forward in the 2018 class.
