Jason Washburn, future Ute.
Three star Michigan recruit Jason Washburn has committed to the Utes, varying reports disclose. Washburn, a 7'0, 200 lbs center from Battle Creek, Michigan, had offers from Michigan, Michigan State, LSU and Penn State, as well as interest in UConn and Indiana.
It was believed Washburn was Michigan State bound, but Jim Boylen -- a former Michigan State assistant -- made quite an impression on the 17 year old. I'll have more information on Washburn as it becomes available, but this is the second recruit to commit to Utah since Boylen took over earlier this year. The first is Chris Hines out of Houston, Texas.
