Kentucky, Washington to battle over Wroten

Tony Wroten Jr., one of the best point guard recruits in the nation, has reportedly narrowed his choices to two schools -- Kentucky and Washington.

Wroten currently plays for Garfield High in Seattle, but the situation seems to have Terrence Jones saga written all over it. Kentucky coach John Calipari has lured one recruit out of the Pacific Northwest and can certainly do it again.

Not that Wroten plans on pulling a Jones or anything in terms of going back and forth on a decision, as he told KJR:

"I’m not going to do UW dirty like that. Whenever I choose my school, I’m going to go with that decision. I ain’t going to put on the hat and then change the next day. I’m not like that."

Wroten is so talented that ESPNU has him as the No. 24-ranked recruit despite him missing his entire high school junior season due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered from playing football.

Kentucky commits Michael Gilchrist and Marquis Teague have been recruiting Wroten while playing together over the summer, so maybe the Wildcats have an edge there.

One thing is for certain. Wroten does not lack confidence.

He told ZagsBlog.com that Harrison Barnes committing to North Carolina over Skype was "pretty weak" and also had this to say to KJR:

"When I do commit, it’s going to be the best commitment ever because I’m going to do it big. I'm going to have a big press conference. It's going to be big."
