UW sophomore power forward, Tyreese Breshers, retired today due to medical reasons. He spent his redshirt freshman year recovering from a shin surgery that involved inserting a metal rod through his patella tendon and into his shin…which doesn’t sound like ice cream and salt water taffy.
Unfortunately, the shin surgery led to knee problems which led to conditioning issues, but Breshers persevered and had his best game of the season in the Pac-10 championship against Cal – scoring six points and blocking four shots.
This “poor man’s Jon Brockman” is going to be sorely missed for his physical presence down low. Breshers joins Elston Turner (Texas A&M) and Clarence Trent (Seattle U.) as Huskies that won’t be returning to the team next season.
The Huskies now have room for five players in the 2011 class which currently has one commitment from Rainier Beach shooting guard, Hikeem Stewart.
According to Scout.com, the Huskies have extended offers to seven players in the ’11 class: shooting guards Stewart, Jabari Brown, Tony Wroten, and Brett Kingma and power forwards Angelo Chol, Norvel Pelle, and Jernard Jerreau.
Clearly the Huskies will be bringing in some pretty fresh names next year. Jernard Jerreau? The guy sounds like an athletic, aquatic explorer…which is exactly what Romar has been lacking the last few years.
