Nathan Hale's Michael Porter Jr. asks for release from Washington

Michael Porter Jr., Gatorade Player of The Year, Plans to Request Release from National Letter of Intent with Washington

USA Today's Jason Jordan reported he's also considering Missouri and Virginia, and Washington is not off the table.

Porter Jr. didn't give the conference call a list, but he spoke affectionately about the possibility of reuniting with his MoKan Elite teammate Trae Young at Oklahoma, mentioned his family ties to Missouri where two of his sisters play and also noted that Washington isn't out of the running as the school has hired a good coach, former Syracuse assistant Mike Hopkins, to lead the program.

Porter Jr. was named Naismith National High School Player on Monday after averaging 36.2 points, 13.6 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 2.4 blocks per game. It turns out coach Romar knew him really well, and my dad knows who he was, and my dad went to meet with him.

"I was connected to this coaching staff, and now that they're gone, I want to reweigh my options", Porter Jr. said.

Michael Porter Jr., the basketball phenom from Seattle's Nathan Hale High School who is considered the top recruit in the nation, says he's taking a fresh look at where he wants to play college ball after the University of Washington fired head coach Lorenzo Romar.

On Missouri: "That's home for me and they reached out to my dad with a job offer so if he accepts that, not saying I'll definitely go there, but it'd be big".

The above Twitter reaction seemingly came from a right-wing account which looks fairly supportive of constructing the Ram Temple. Meanwhile, Vishwa Hindu Parishad chief Pravin Togadia asked the Modi Government to bring out legislation to build the Ram temple.

The five-star forward didn't dismiss playing for the Huskies next season, though he did say he made a request for the return of his national letter of intent. "He said Cuonzo's a great guy, he's a victor, he has a competitiveness to him". Romar was sacked last week after 15 seasons with the Huskies.

Michael Porter Jr., the top-ranked high school basketball player for the Class of 2017 according to ESPN and Rivals, told USA Today on Wednesday that he's interested in Oklahoma.

"Playing the best teams, living in nice hotels, going to beaches and stuff - that was incredible", said Tolton point guard Isaiah Wilson, one of Porter's best friends in Columbia. "It said about a million words about who he is as a person, what his character is, how much he loves his school and what he's going ot do moving forward and I feel so fortunate and lucky that he believed enough in me to join the staff". Michael Jr. and his brother, Jontay, ended up at Nathan Hale and both later committed to Washington.

Porter also has not set a date for visits or a final decision, just repeatedly stating he wishes to take his time and start over the recruiting process. "It is not a for sure thing I follow my dad", Porter told reporters. "To be able to go back there, I know those fans are hungry and I've been shown a lot of love from Mizzou fans".

The Porters' early impression of Martin is positive.

He said that younger brother Jontay, a 2018 recruit, has a desire to play with him and is seriously considering reclassifying up a year to play college basketball with him.
