Enter the Washington Huskies.
On Tuesday night, Lorenzo Romar finally struck gold in the Gaddy sweepstakes.
"Abdul just committed to the University of Washington," Abdul Gaddy, Sr., told Scout.com. "He'll be playing home in front of his family and friends and we're excited for it."
Scout.com's 9th ranked player and one of the youngest seniors in the Class of 2009, announced that he'll sign with UW. Gaddy attends nearby Tacoma (Wash.) Bellarmine Prep.
This time, Gaddy found solace in the program closest to his residence. Like Spencer Hawes in 2005, Gaddy's excited to be staying home.
"I took all the Arizona stuff … I knew it but I didn't know. Now I see it as a sign to stay home. What's better than staying home and trying to go to the NBA."
