Jernard Jarreau to transfer out of Washington

1 Comment

The roster turnover at Washington continued on Monday, as big man Jernard Jarreau was granted a release to transfer from the program on the same day that the Huskies received a commitment from top 100 recruit Dominic Green.

Jarreau averaged 5.1 points and 4.7 boards while starting 21 games as a redshirt junior. He tore his ACL in the opener of the 2013-14 season, receiving a medical redshirt for the year. As a result, the 6-foot-10, 240 pound New Orleans native will be eligible immediately next season.

Jarreau also missed the final 10 games of the 2014-15 season due to a knee injury.

Lorenzo Romar has landed one of his best recruiting classes at Washington this season, with five of the eight newcomers¬†ranked in at Scout’s top 100. But with Williams-Goss and Jarreau headlining the four players that are transferring out of the program, Washington does not have much in the way of experience on their roster. Only three rotation players — Andrew Andrews, Quevyn Winters and Donaven Dorsey — are back, and none of them are front court players.
