The nation's No. 31-ranked recruit by ESPNU is staying home in Seattle and headed to Washington, but what a ride it was for the point guard.
Wroten included Louisville as a finalist, but only playfully fiddled with a Cardinals cap before donning a Huskies one at the press conference.
"(Rick) Pitino's a great coach, but I had to do at the end of the day what's best for me," Wroten said on the Seattle Times webcast.
With Washington, Wroten went with his father's alma mater and a program that last season went to the Sweet 16. He joins a recruiting class compiled by Lorenzo Romar that already includes shooting guard Hikeem Stewart and power forward Jernard Jarreau.
"My home is where my heart is," Wroten said.
