According to sources close to the situation, Pondexter will commit to the Washington Huskies.
Pondexter, who averaged 20.3 points and 5.8 rebounds as a junior and is ranked 27th in the Class of 2006, cancelled a third visit schedule for Memphis and will make his announcement official Thursday at 3 p.m. PST.
Pondexter, an athletic wing who established himself as an elite player this summer when he displayed the ability to knock down shots from the perimeter, visited UConn last weekend and returned from a trip to nearby Washington this weekend.
``I'm down to those two," Pondexter said.
``I like how much the UConn program wins and how good Coach (Jim) Calhoun is," he added. "He's one of the best of all-time and is a Hall of Famer."
``But there are a lot of good things going on at Washington," he continued. "They're up and coming in the Pac-10 and Coach (Lorenzo) Romar is a guy that many people would love to play for."
