Another big man interested in UW spoke Thursday with Eric Jaklitsch, assistant coach at Our Savior New American in Centereach, New York, who gave us the skinny on one of his players - Daouda Soumaoro, a 6-foot-9, 220-pound power forward/center. Jaklitsch also coaches the New York Elite AAU program, and has been helping Soumaoro through the recruiting process. Soumaoro is officially visiting Washington this weekend.

"Long, lanky, athletic," Jaklitsch said of Soumaoro. "He can shoot from the outside. "He's going to end up being a step-out four who can rebound the ball very well. He plays very good defense. He's not a phenomenal athlete, but he has a motor that never stops. He just runs, runs, runs, and runs."

Our Savior New American School is a private four-year high school, with kids enrolled from all over the world. Washington Assistant Coach Raphael Chillious is the one recruiting Soumaoro for the Huskies, and Jaklitsch knows Chillious from his days at South Kent Prep.

Soumaoro is originally from Mali. "He's been in the states since November of 2009," Jaklitsch said. Jaklitsch also confirmed that the three Division-1 offers Soumaoro has right now are St. John's, Washington and Texas Tech.

We'll have more from Soumaoro's visit early next week.
