Junior Profile: Andrew Haskins
Andrew Haskins, 6-3 JR SG Kirkland (Wash.) Lake Washington, is a good-looking lefty with an excellent frame and good athleticism. When we saw him this past summer, his shot didn't go down consistently, but the stroke seemed fine and we'd expect him to develop into a good shooter. We spoke with Haskins last night and asked him about the schools that had been out to see him at his high school. "Santa Clara, New Mexico, Tennessee, Stanford, UW of course, and some others," said Haskins. "Other schools have talked to my coach as well -- Oregon, Oregon St., Oklahoma, Oklahoma St." We asked Haskins if he admired any particular school growing up. "Definitely Arizona," said Haskins. "But now it's Stanford." When asked if Stanford would be his top choice right now, Haskins replied, "Yes -- also Oklahoma and definitely Tennessee. Tennessee has probably sent me one hundred fifty out of the five hundred or so pieces of mail I've got." Haskins told us that Stanford is recruiting a very good friend of his, sophomore football player Ryan Stodicure, who also plays basketball for Lake Washington. "He's my right-hand man in basketball," said Haskins." Haskins has a list of factors that he will consider when making his college choice. "Coaching, environment, academics, location, the people at the school, and campus life." He said that leaving the West Coast wouldn't be an issue for him. We asked about early playing time and Haskins said, "of course I want to play, and that's one of the questions I'll be asking the coaches about -- how deep they are, who else they're recruiting -- but I won't make my decision on that." Don't look for an early decision from Haskins. "I'll take all five trips," said Haskins. "Then probably decide before my senior year." Haskins told us that he has a 3.5 GPA and has yet to take the SAT.
