Washington Huskies coach Lorenzo Romar told 710AM Seattle radio personality Kevin Calabro Friday that he is past the Terrence Jones. Romar said, "We've turned the page."

Romar and Calabro, who referred to Jones as "Player X" discussed whether Romar would take Jones back if the player decided to change his mind once again.

"I'm never going to back myself into a corner and say never, but I'd think I'd have to say I moved on."

Calabro responded, "Really? You've had similar situations in the past and you've taken those players."

"Those were different circumstances," Romar responded, "each case is individual. In this case we have great players like Terrence Ross that have committed to us and this whole thing has taken too much of the spotlight away from the fact that we have a solid class coming in and a bright future. I want to move on."

So what did Romar make of that whole fiasco at the original press conference? "I think it was a situation where the player had a great deal of pressure and was pretty confused." Romar admitted that Jones was on the Washington campus just prior to his commitment to Kentucky. "In the end, the player went home and did some soul searching and made a decision. He made a choice he felt was best for him.

Jones was the second player that Romar had lost to Kentucky. What does Romar think of Calipari?

"The Enes Kanter situation was quite a bit different," Romar said, "At the time we tried to get Kanter to come on campus, he had no recorded test score on record and the only way he could come was to pay his own way. That's when Kentucky got involved. Kanter never made it to Washington. As far as Calipari, I like to look at what I do and how I operate. The things other people do are out of my control."
