    TyTy Washington, the 6-foot-3 point guard from Arizona Compass Prep (AZ) and Vegas Elite AAU, announced his top 10 schools on Saturday night.

    Washington is down to Arizona State, Auburn, Creighton, LSU, New Mexico, Ole Miss, Santa Barbara, San Diego State, USC, and Washington State.

    He broke down his top ten for ZAGSBLOG.

    Arizona State: “It’s right in my own backyard literally five minutes away. I’ve built a good relationship with the staff there. I can agree with everything coach (Bobby) Hurley has told me about the way they play because I’ve witnessed it with my own eyes at every game I’ve been to. He allows his guards to play and try to speed opponents up to tire them out which creates easy buckets. 

    Auburn: “Auburn’s a really good basketball school and great environment. I’ve established a strong relationship with the coaching staff. And I enjoy watching them compete as coach (Bruce) Pearl lets his guards play.

    Creighton: “I love the way coach (Greg) McDermott spaces the floor and runs a flowing offense. And I love the confidence he gives his player to let it fly whenever open.”

    LSU: “Ever since I received an offer from them I talked with the staff every other day where either coach (Will) Wade or coach (Nick) Robinson which just shows how interested they are in me. Their style of play is good. Coach knows how to find mismatches all over the floor and utilizing his guards to mismatch opponents’ guards.”

    New Mexico: “I visited the campus back in February and it was great. The pit is something else! My relationship with coach (Paul) Weir and coach (Brandon) Mason is good. After visiting and watching a game the staff is really big on development and working hard.”

    Ole Miss: “My relationship with them are good as I talk with coach (Kermit) Davis and coach (Levi) Watkins a lot. I can tell coach really lets his team go out and play.”

    Santa Barbara: “My relationship with the staff is great especially coach (Ben) Tucker. He’s really a great dude and coach (Joe) Pasternack has always kept it 100 percent with me. He told me what it’s going to be, you need to want it. The scenery of Santa Barbara is just amazing. In the off season they breakdown strength and weakness which focuses on improving the weakness before the season. Their Facility P3 is amazing just seeing some of there players body develop from working out there shows it’s the real deal.”

    San Diego State: “Coach (Brian) Dutcher is an amazing dude as he keeps it honest with you no matter what. I can tell the team is focused on winning when I watch them play. They always find ways to win whether it’s shutting their opponents down with defense or out executing them.”

    USC: “USC is a great school and I have a really good relationship with coach (Eric) Mobley beyond basketball. As far as basketball it’s a good situation especially for me as a guard because they have really talented bigs that help their guards look good. They really focus on developing their players.”

    Washington State: I have a pretty good relationship with all the entire coaching staff especially coach (Derrick) Phelps because he thinks he can beat me in 1v1. Just watching them play at the pace they play at is real easy for the guards to create for themselves and for others.

    According to 247Sports, Washington is ranked No. 60 nationally and is the No. 3 player in Arizona.
