Wallace Very Close To Commitment

Artem Wallace, one of the best big men in the west for 2005, is close to committing to a Pac-10 school...

We spoke with Artem Wallace, a 6-8 junior center/power forward from Toledo (Wash.) High, this afternoon and learned that he's very close to committing to Washington.

Wallace just returned from a trip to Washington today and we asked him about reports that he's committed to Washington.

"Kinda, sorta," said Wallace. "I haven't really done it yet, but it could be in the next day or two. I want to think about it a little longer, and talk it over with Gil (his adopted father), but it's almost for sure I'll commit."

Wallace said the official visit to Washington went very well. "I liked everything about it," said Wallace. "I liked the Seattle area, the guys on the team are really cool and I like the coaches. I spent a lot of time with them and they seem like great coaches."
