2016 five-star shooting guard Markelle Fultz commits to Washington

Fultz picked Washington over Kentucky, Louisville, and Arizona

Washington Huskies coach Lorenzo Romar is the longest-tenured coach in the Pac-12. Part of the reason why is his ability to come up with big-time recruits.

That recruiting ability shone brightly again when 2016 five-star shooting guard Markelle Fultz announced he was heading for Washington to play his college basketball on Friday night.

Fultz, the best player in the state of Maryland in 2016 per 247Sports, chose the Huskies over Arizona, Kentucky, and Louisville, and is Washington's first 2016 commit.

Below is Fultz's highlight video from this summer's NBA Top 100 Camp. He should be a starter on opening night for the Huskies.
