Class of 2015 Scouting Report: Washington Huskies F Matisse Thybulle

Lorenzo Romar's latest addition has the Huskies' Class of 2015 ranked seventh in the nation.

With how mediocre Washington's Class of 2014 is (84th in the nation, 10th in the PAC-12, per 247Sports), it is easy to forget that Lorenzo Romar is a very good recruiter. His Class of 2015 will help jog everyone's memory. Romar and his staff have assembled the seventh-best Class of 2015 in the nation, and second-best in the conference, behind only Arizona's incredible class.

The latest commit to the Huskies' Class of 2015 is a small forward out of Bellevue, Washington, named Matisse Thybulle. Thybulle is #121 on 247Sports' Top247 for 2015, and is the third best player in the state of Washington (fellow Washington commits, Dejounte Murray and David Crisp are the first and second best players, respectively.)

What does Thybulle bring to the Huskies? There is not a ton of video out there about him, but there are a coumple good ones that can give you a sampling of his game. For starters, here is Thybulle forcing a steal, then dunking over a defender.

He has great speed and athleticism, which coaches can always find a way to utilize in the college game.

Although Thybulle is technically the "worst" of Washington's four 2015 commits so far, it would not surprise me at all for Lorenzo Romar to turn him into a hidden gem. I think Thybulle could even get as well-developed as former Washignton forward Jon Brockman. Time will tell.
