His dunks remind me of Ty Pitts.

Per Verbal Commmits, Washington is a 6' 4" 160 pound shooting guard from Southfield Christian School in Detroit.

He had offers from a number of schools, including Pitt, Drake, Colgate, Navy and Brown.

ESPN lists him as a 3 star recruit - #9 in Michigan, #40 in the Midwest and #41 SG in the nation.

Great news. I have been concerned that too few recruits had figured out that we have an amazing head coach who is certainly the best coach in the Ivy League and one of the very best around. Steve is not flashy. He is a teacher who analyzes what his team needs and then implements a strategy to maximize its potential. Steve is a significant piece of why our team had the chemistry and the success that it did this year and why it has rejuvenated the Penn fan base. I sincerely doubt that we would have gone to the NCAA tournament if anyone else in the Ivy League had been coaching them.
Cudos to Bryce for figuring out that Penn is a super place to go to college and to play basketball. We wish him every success.

Wow. This kid can really jump. But can he shoot?

He looks like a scorer and certainly someone who can create his own shot. Looks to be rather speedy and has serious hops. Has adequate size for a shooting guard, too.

The big questions: can he play defense, can he fit into a team scheme.

By the way, Bryce is a Class of 2018 recruit--so he will be on campus in just a few months (if not earlier). Looks like a really solid late addition to the class.

Seems to me to be a very good late addition to 2018 class. He won back to back state championships I believe and is the schools all time leading scorer. He also appears to be able to jump over a bus which can’t hurt.

Just turned around an otherwise aggravating night. Great to hear.

Wait, what? How is this possible?

wow, looks like a super late get. Penn wasn't even listed on all of the recruiting pages I looked at.

Someone asked if he can shoot.

This is from an article after Bryce got the offer from Pitt:

“Pitt didn’t know who I was until this fall. I had a teammate that’s been getting a lot of love (2019 guard Harlond Beverly). Coach (Dan) Cage came to my high school to watch a workout and he didn’t know who I was,” said Washington. “After he saw my workout, he was really impressed with what I did and we have stayed connected. The offer from Pitt came about a week or two ago.”

Washington, scoring 1,236 career points, recently became his high school’s all-time leading scorer. He was named the Associated Press’ co-player of the year for 2017 in Michigan after averaging 20 points and 7 rebounds per game as a junior while shooting 63% from the field and 42% from three point range. This year Washington is averaging 26 points and 11 rebounds per game and is an exceptionally strong student with an overall 3.9 grade point average.

Any idea as to why he waited so long to commit? Perhaps this had something to do with test scores?

Other offers were coming from solid mid-majors. The Pitt offer sticks out like a sore thumb, not sure how to read that one.

He fits the profile of Donahue wing recruits - length, can shoot from outside, attacks the rim, plays D. And we know by now that you don't see the floor for Donahue unless you play D and hit 3's.

Bryce's website has plenty of info :

I haven't seen a video with so many dunks before, so the questions about the rest of his game were valid. Not sure if we've ever had a player of his style before - he doesn't remind me of anyone. I guess I would call him the taller, even more athletic Goodman...

A great late addition. If he really is a great defender and shooter, that would really lift the team's upside. He and a health Williams could terrorize the league as upperclassmen.

He played for a top AAU team on the EYBL circuit and was a co star on a state championship team with another D1 player. The kid can play. He is a great addition to what is now a strong recruiting class.

As for his defense, he will be good. Defense is a learned skill and is all about desire. He will fit in just fine.

Yeah, agree about that. D could very well be his calling card. Based on the vids it looks like he has a good motor, which speaks to desire.

There's enough talent/skill on the offensive end to be encouraged - handles the ball, attacks the rim, hits 3's from set position, apparently at a good clip.

Sounds good. At 6"4" and 160 pounds, sounds like we need to get him into a weight lifting program. Bottom line - sounds like a great get!
