<p>Before we get to an interview with Washington coach <strong>Lorenzo Romar</strong>, here's a few links to start the morning.</p>
<p>--- Our story <a href="http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/huskies/2011916629_umen21.html">focuses on Romar and how he's coping</a> after Portland star recruit <strong>Terrence Jones </strong>had a sudden change of heart and signed with the Wildcats.</p>
<p>--- <strong>Steve Kelley </strong><a href="http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/stevekelley/2011916059_kelley21.html">takes a swipe at Jones</a> and writes: "You screwed up and you no longer can hide behind the excuse that you're only 18 and just a kid. It's time to start acting like a grown-up."</p>
<p>--- Jones spoke to <a href="http://highschoolsports.oregonlive.com/news/article/-1115584364441504833/terrence-jones-chooses-kentucky-says-he-is-95-percent-certain-he-will-be-a-wildcat/">the Oregonian </a>and said he wouldn't undo the April press conference when he verbally committed to UW.</p>
<p>--- Oregonian columnist <strong>John Canzano </strong>believes the <a href="http://www.oregonlive.com/sports/oregonian/john_canzano/index.ssf/2010/05/terrence_jones_reversal_renews.html">Jones saga </a>hasn't ended and has likely just began.</p>

<p>Romar said losing Jones and <strong>Enes Kanter </strong>, another former UW commit, to Kentucky is disappointing, but the defections won't deter plans to pursue top-tier recruits. He also gave his opinion on recruits signing financial aid agreements rather than a national letter of intent.</p>
<p>Here's a portion of the Romar interview.</p>
<p><strong>(Is this 2010 class complete or will you add someone else?)</strong> "We're done. You never know three weeks from now someone says hey I'm interested in coming out of nowhere. That's something that you didn't expect. There's no one that we see right now that would allow us to continue."</p>
<p><strong>(I know you can't talk specifically about Terrence Jones so what are your thoughts on UW's recruiting process?)</strong> "Just a very unique situation. I've been doing this 17 years and never been involved in one like this and I don't know if we ever will again. This was a unique situation."</p>
<p><strong>(As you go forward and build this program, how do you recruit and sign top 10 level prospects?)</strong> "Well we've been going after them. In terms of getting them ... Two of the recruits we got this year, we wouldn't have landed if we had not done well this year. I say that to say we just have to continue working hard in putting a team out there that's going to be successful and I think that thing takes care of itself over a period of time."</p>
<p><strong>(How do you balance recruiting five-star recruits with less-heralded recruits who may be your type of guys?)</strong> "To me there's not a balance. There's who out there that's going to make you the best team that you can be that you have a chance to get. That's the balance. Who do you have a chance to get? If you got no chance, you don't want to spin your wheels and go after someone you're not going to get. But do you have a legitimate chance to get this player and will they make you the best that you can possibly be. If you picking based on stars, you're picking based on PR. We're not looking for PR points. We're looking for who is going to make us the best team and make us the best program possible. And whoever fits that criteria is who we're trying to get. When you use the word balance, there is that word, but it's based on who do you have a realistic chance of getting."</p>
<p><strong>(Do you have an understanding of what happened in the past three weeks?)</strong></p>
