A bombshell to Lorenzo Romar and the University of Washington basketball team today as it has surfaced that Charles Garcia Jr. will not qualify academically for University of Washington standards.
Romar later confirmed the news, now raising the question of who will use the final scholarship for the upcoming season. With the Joe Wolfinger transfer and Garcia failing to qualify, the Huskies are using 12 scholarships out of the 13 that the NCAA allows.
I doubt that Romar will go after a recruit as I am sure all of the players he has recruited have signed LOI’s. So I expect the team to roll with 12 scholarships this season.
Somewhat ironic that the news comes today as I have had a article on what happens if Josh Smith commits in the queue ready to be published. But with the news today, and should Smith commit, its now obvious where that scholarship opens up.
Garcia was expected to help out in the front court for the Huskies with the loss of Jon Brockman, but it now appears as if Darnell Gant, Matthew Bryan-Amaning, and Tyreese Breshers will have to step up their game next season.
