Washington men’s basketball coach Lorenzo Romar said Wednesday that Timberline guard Donaven Dorsey and Tristan Etienne, a 6-foot-10 forward from British Columbia, each signed a National Letter of Intent today to play for the Huskies next season.
On Etienne, Romar said: “Tristan is a guy who we’ve been recruiting for a long time, been watching him for a while. He’s continued to develop and continued to get better. I think he’s one of the top four or five prospects in the entire country of Canada. He’s a good shot-blocker, he has really good hands, can step outside and knock a shot down. When you look at his frame you can just see after a year or so of really getting on the weights working with our strength coach and the different people here he has a huge upside. We’re excited about that.”
On Dorsey, Romar said: “Donaven Dorsey is a very rangy, versatile wing. He can handle the ball, he can shoot the ball, he’s athletic and he’s 6-foot-6 with long arms. He’s a prototypical ‘Husky’ wing. Timberline High School here in the area, about an hour away.
Dorsey is listed as a 4-star prospect by Scout.com. According to the recruiting website, he also had offers from Gonzaga, Oregon State and Washington State. Etienne also had a WSU offer.
Both Dorsey and Etienne committed verbally to UW in July.
