Wake Forest and UNC both lost out on a significant recruit when Blake Harris, who plays at Raleigh's Word of God Academy, committed to Lorenzo Romar's Washington program.

Everyone's situation is different but it's hard to understand. Washington is a long ways away and it's not like the Huskies have set the world on fire lately.

Despite significant talent, Romar hasn't taken Washington to the NCAA tournament since 2010-11 and hasn't won 20 games since 2012.

In the last four years Washington is 70-61.

But certainly there's opportunity in a flailing program too.
