Bone wastes little time in picking up PG

KEN BONE DIDN'T waste much time on his latest recruiting trip. After his annual meeting with A.D. Bill Moos on Wednesday, Bone hit the road recruiting on Thursday morning. He then took a page out of Mike Leach's recruiting playbook, nabbing a guard out of Texas on Friday night. Danny Lawhorn, a 6-1 point out of San Jacinto College Central, announced his decision to commit to Wazzu on twitter.

"Ill Be Heading To Finish My Ball Career At Washington State Next Year In The PAC 12 !!!" tweeted Danny Lawhorn.

Lawhorn (6-1, 190) chose WSU over offers from SMU, Georgia, Kansas State, Iona and others.

Ken Bone had said earlier this week he was looking for a guard with a point guard mindset, and that true point guards are in short supply in the regular signing period coming up in April. But Bone may have found one if assists per game are any indication.

Lawhorn led Division I of the National Junior College Athletic Association in assists per game in 2011-12 before finishing second this season.

Lawhorn averaged 8.43 assists and 9.9 ppg this season. The year previous, he averaged 9.3 assists and 9.7 points per game.

Lawhorn shot 14-40 from 3-point land (35 percent) and 46.4 percent from the field overall in 2012-13. He also averaged 4.0 rebounds and 2.16 steals per game.

All 13 scholarships are accounted for as of now so either someone will transfer or be taken off scholarship to accommodate Lawhorn.

If everyone returns, James Hunter might be the most likely candidate on either list. The 6-9, 250-pound sophomore played only 29 minutes this season and he projects to have several players ahead of him on next year's depth chart including D.J. Shelton, Junior Longrus, Jordan Railey, Brett Boese and Josh Hawkinson.
