ESPN No. 26 ranked high school junior point guard Elijah Hardy has committed to the University of Washington.


The 6-2 floor general out of Bishop O’Dowd HS (Oakland, CA) led his AAU squad Team Arsenal in assists at the Adidas Summer Championships, averaging 5 dimes and 1.2 steals.


“It seems like a place where it’s a real tight community,” Hardy told Dawgman.com of UW. “They take care of each other, and that’s what I love about it. It’s kind of like Oakland in that sense — everybody watches over everybody. That’s what I need. They seem like they’re really there to get you better.”


The Husky Haul’s Bret Stuter believes that talented Hardy is a good get for Washington.


“Hardy brings a new boost of talent to the team, he is a guard who can direct the floor, score, and play defense,” Stuter wrote. “His shooting his natural, and he has a sweet motion from three-point distance.”


UW DawgPound’s Max Vrooman said Hardy fills a position of need for the Huskies.


“Point guard was a pressing need for the Huskies in the class of 2018,” wrote Vrooman. “Nate Pryor’s eligibility is questionable, leaving David Crisp as the only point guard on the roster and Crisp started his career as a shooting guard.”


“Hardy has been somewhat under the radar but shows the ability to do everything you want out of a PG,” added Vrooman. “Expect Hardy to come in as the immediate backup to Crisp and then take over as a starter in his sophomore year.”


UW beat out the likes of Cal, USC, and Saint Mary’s to land Hardy.
