McLaughlin opens his recruitment back up

MARK McLAUGHLIN, a multi-positional player out of Kenmore's Inglemoor High, has de-committed from Washington State and opened his recruitment back up according to multiple sources. The 6-4, 175-pounder originally made a verbal commitment to WSU earlier this month but later decided to further explore his options and take a longer look at other suitors.

An AAU source told that McLaughlin after de-committing from WSU has since reached out to other schools to gauge their interest.

McLaughlin held offers at the time of his verbal to WSU from Oregon State and Nevada, with Washington and Oregon among those who were also at the time showing him the recruiting love.

Last season as a junior, McLaughlin averaged 23 points per game but it wasn't until earlier this spring he cracked the Top 100 when he displayed an improved stroke and poise. West Recruiting Analyst Greg Hicks rates McLaughlin's vision and passing ability as above average, saying he is still growing into his body.

"When he adds weight and strength, he should be an impact player at the college level," says Hicks.

At Inglemoor this past season, McLaughlin was No. 4 in the state in scoring (Class 4A) averaging 21.6 points per game, earning first team all-KingCo honors. This summer, McLaughlin has been playing for the Seattle Rotary Select AAU team.
