Former Tolton Catholic High School basketball star — and the country's No. 1 player — Michael Porter Jr. said he has decided to ask out of his National Letter of Intent to play at Washington.

As a Huskies signee since November, he intended to ask out of his NLI from the school after former coach Lorenzo Romar was fired but will meet with new coach Mike Hopkins before formally requesting out.

He'll be a free agent to sign elsewhere when the late signing period opens April 12.
