Michael Porter Jr. is one of the most coveted recruits in the class of 2017 and his recruitment has been pretty one-sided. Porter Jr.’s father is an assistant coach at Washington and it’s been believed by just about everyone that he would end up there for that reason alone. It didn’t hurt that his brother already committed there as well for 2018.
Porter Jr. had the chance to let everyone know about his commitment on ESPN during the Nike Peach Jam finals, but decided to keep it low-key like he has just about everything else in his life. Instead, he took to Twitter to let everyone know about his decision:
Porter Jr. is a 6’10”, 212-pound forward and is ranked as the No. 4 player in the country according to ESPN. He was also considering offers from Oklahoma, Virginia, Missouri and Indiana.
