Markelle Fultz just made his verbal commitment official during the Under Armour Elite 24 Dunk and 3-point contest, held in Brooklyn.
“Coach (Lorenzo) Romar and Coach Chills (Raphael Chillious) have been recruiting me for a long time,” Fultz said during his official visit to Washington last week. “I have a real good relationship with them. I talk to them about more than basketball. I talk to them about classwork, just good advice. I’m out here taking my official visit and it’s one of the schools I’m looking forward to coming to. It’s been a blessing to have a coach I can talk to about other stuff more than basketball. I don’t have a father, so it’s been good.”
