All-State performer Anthony Brown, an athletic swingman out of Shadle Park in Spokane, told Highlander coach Tim Gaebe that he is definitely still headed to Pullman.
"He's talked with Coach Bone, and he's excited about going to WSU," Gaebe said Wednesday.
Xavier Thames, ranked the 19th-best college prospect among senior point guards in the United States by Scout.com, sounds like he'll be joining Brown in Pullman.
"I haven't decided, but I talked to Coach Bone yesterday," Thames said Wednesday. "He seems like a good guy. It seems like a good fit."
Bone is scheduled to make a home visit to Thames in Elk Grove, Calif., on Saturday.
Meanwhile, the father of David Chadwick said Wednesday night his son has yet to speak with Bone.
"I'm sure he's snowed under … I read the stories about him (being hired). He seems like a great guy," said David Sr., who played for Dean Smith at North Carolina back in the day.
The elder Chadwick became close friends with former WSU coach Tony Bennett when the latter played in the NBA for the old Charlotte Hornets. The younger Chadwick is a 6-foot-8 all-state forward from Charlotte.
WSU's other recruit is 6-9 Australian forward Brock Motum, who told CF.C last week that he wanted to digest the whole change before commenting. Efforts to reach him the last day were unsuccessful.
