For the second time in the span of a month, Arizona State head coach Herb Sendek landed a 2015 commitment from a three-star JuCo recruit. On Friday night, Indian Hills Community College (Iowa) power forward Jordan Washington committed to the Sun Devils, according to a report from Brad Winton of JuCoRecruiting.com.
The 6-foot-8 Washington was on an official visit to the Tempe, Arizona campus. Last month, 6-foot-3 guard Andre Spight from South Plains Community College (Texas) pledged to Arizona State. While Washington will bring his physical style of play to the post, Spight told NBCSports.com in July that he is looking to develop his point guard skills. The junior college duo joins three-star small forward Dominic Green in the Sun Devils’ incoming class.
In 35 games for Indian Hills, Washington averaged 9.8 points and 5.7 rebounds per game.
The Sun Devils reached the NCAA tournament for the first time in five season this past March. Though, they lose their three top three contributors from a season ago as Jahii Carson, Jordan Bachynski and Jermaine Marshall have all left the program. Washington, Spight and Green will follow a seven-man 2014 recruiting class.
Sendek, who is entering his ninth season as the head coach at Arizona State, received a contract extension on Sept. 1.
