Tony Wroten Jr Headed to the Pac-10

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
On a day where Jabari Brown announced Oregon and Johnny O'Bryant is set to announce LSU, Tony Wroten Jr, a 6-foot-4 point guard from Seattle, Washington stole the show.

Wroten was conceived to announce Louisville today. He posted on his Twitter how much he really liked Louisville at the moment and it almost seemed like Head Coach Rick Pitino was on the verge of acquiring one of the better guards in the country.

However, that was not the case. Yesterday, Wroten Jr decided that he would stay close and play in his home town of Washington. The Washington Huskies picked up there third recruit in the 2011 recruiting class.

Wroten joins a class with Hikeem Stewart, Jarnard Jarreau and could possibly attract more highly-touted recruits.

"I love [Seattle] and want to represent Seattle and UW to the best of my ability," Wroten Jr told ESPN. "The up and down style of play and them scoring almost 80 points per game is attractive."

Wroten chose the Huskies over Louisville, UConn, Villanova, and Seattle.
