Huskies nab versatile guard prospect

Even in today's world of websites and magazines devoted to recruiting, players can still come out of nowhere to commit to a school. Such is the case with Pleasant Grove (Utah) SG C.J. Wilcox who recently took an unofficial visit to Washington and shortly after that, he made the decision that he wanted to play for the Huskies.

"I committed there yesterday," a happy Wilcox told about his commitment to Washington. "A month ago when I went down to play in Houston, I guess they saw me play, they weren't looking for me, but they saw me play and then they started calling and then I took the unofficial and since then I've been talking to them pretty much every day."

Last year, Wilcox led the state of Utah in scoring with 24 points per game and he notched had six rebounds and four assists per game as well.

"I can do everything," Wilcox said when asked about what type of game he brings to the table. "I can shoot and I can dribble and I'm long so the coaches recruiting me liked that too."

After Wilcox returned home from his visit to Washington he narrowed his choices to Washington and Utah and he said the Huskies just had what he was looking for.

"Coach (Lorenzo) Romar and coach (Jim) Shaw were both recruiting me from there," Wilcox said. "I thought it was amazing up there. I liked it a lot. The campus was amazing and I played with the players one day. They had been working out all day so they were pretty tired so we didn't get that serious about things, but it was fun."

Aside from his offers from the Utes and Huskies, Wilcox also had offers from Miami, San Diego State, Iowa State, BYU, Utah State and UNLV.
