Men’s basketball coach Lorenzo Romar confirmed this afternoon that power forward Charles Garcia won’t be part of this fall’s incoming class due to academic issues.

Garcia is a 6-foot-9, 220-pound power forward, and as the only junior college transfer of this class, it had been hoped that he could step in immediately and help fill the void left by the departure of senior Jon Brockman.

However, he ran into grade troubles last winter, and apparently wasn’t able to solve them, at least to UW’s standards. He is apparently NCAA-eligible, however, as Romar said Garcia is likely headed to Seattle University, where he will play for Cameron Dollar, the longtime Romar assistant who has taken over the Redhawks’ program.
