    ESPN on Washington's performance at the New York State Top 24 in Albany, N.Y.

    Purest Point Guard
    Howard Washington Jr. (Buffalo, N.Y./Canisius)
    6-3, 175, 2016, PG
    Offers: Virginia, Virginia Tech, Boston University
    He has played only one year of high school basketball and yet he has a game and maturity level that is well beyond his years. The professionalism with which he goes through drill work is truly unique at his age, overshadowed only by the efficiency in his floor game as he utilizes a well-developed skill set and extremely high basketball IQ without wasting any motion. Simply put he’s the type of guy all coaches are looking for to run their team.

    I'd like to be the first to officially start the rumor that he's Pearl's son. Somebody is going to start that rumor, it might as well be me.

    2 different kids in that video. I like the one with the green shoes, his jumpshot is like when you forget your breathing.

    HW is the kid in the green shoes. I was able to watch him last night as they played in Rochester at the RAP Invitational. After the 1st quarter I thought there was no way this kid is on SU's radar. Didn't do much offensively hit a couple free throws and actually missed a breakaway layup. 2nd quarter he arrived. He banged 2 treys, couple mid range jumpers and 4 free throws. He did a nice job defending Webster's best wing player. At halftime he had 16 of the 33 points Canisius had. 4th quarter Canisius started to pull away so he didn't log as many minutes. Scored 8 to total 24 on the game and made up for his missed breakaway bunny with a fast break flush. Impressive kid that I am sure SU will monitor. Congratulated him after the game and I'm thinking he is closer to 6'1 than 6'3. He may be a "B" list kid considering the names throwing Syracuse out there in 2016.

    Multiple sources tell me that Texas associate head coach (& WNY native) Rob Lanier is here to watch Canisius soph. guard Howard Washington.

    Scout had an update on him recently. Doesn't have an offer from SU, but says he grew up rooting for them and had good things to say about Hop and his experience at the Elite Camps.

    Read a lot of positive things recently about this player from Buffalo that is a Cuse fan. Apparently has a mature game like Ennis. Could be an option if Battle goes elsewhere.

    It has been reported that Washington is now transferring to Montverde for next season. Big time power move for him. He should get plenty of exposure and continue to see his stock rise. SU staff has been checking him out all week.

    Howard and Montverde will be playing against top 10 prospect Ivan Rabb and his Bishop O' Dowd squad today at 6:30 on ESPN2. Washington is #10.
