Down to the wire again.
Tony Wroten, Jr., a highly-regarded 6-foot-4 point guard from the Seattle area, will make a verbal commitment to either Louisville or Washington Thursday at 6 p.m.
The Seattle Times wondered how things are going:
Q: Have you made your big decision yet?
Wroten: No, I’m still undecided until Thursday at 3 p.m.
Q: [Very leading] Watching guys like Brandon Roy, Nate Robinson, Tre Simmons, Will Conroy all go to UW, do you feel pressure to follow in their footsteps?
Wroten: No pressure at all. I’m going to do what’s best for me.
Q: What coaches have been in contact with you in the past 48 hours?
Wroten: Louisville, Louisville, Louisville. For real.
Q: How are you doin’? Nervous? Excited? A little of both?
Wroten: I’m just fine right now, but I know the closer it gets to my decision I’ll have butterflies in my stomach.
Q: What color do you like better, red or purple?
Wroten: I love purple, but I’ve been wearing a lot of red lately.
Going to do what’s best for him. Hopefully for Louisville, too.
