Huskies announce signing of JUCO transfer QB Tony Rodriguez

The Huskies made it official on Tuesday morning, announcing the signing of quarterback Tony Rodriguez, who played the last two seasons at City College of San Francisco.

Rodriguez has three years of eligibility remaining to play two seasons. He signed a financial-aid agreement, because the national letter of intent signing period has passed.

“We’re really happy that we were able to find Tony,” UW coach Chris Petersen said in a statement released by the school. “He’ll add an immediate boost to the competition at the quarterback position this fall.” Read more »

Report: Huskies add JUCO QB Tony Rodriguez

According to the above tweets from junior-college recruiting analyst Kevin Lustgarten, the Huskies have signed JUCO transfer quarterback Tony Rodriguez from City College of San Francisco.

It appears Rodriguez visited recently (or is currently visiting), and the photo on the left obviously shows him signing some sort of paperwork. There’s been no official word yet from UW, though if he did sign some kind of financial-aid agreement or letter of intent, I’d expect an announcement from the school before too long. Read more »

Huskies men’s basketball team officially adds 4-star prospect Noah Dickerson

Noah Dickerson announced his commitment to the Washington Huskies during his official visit to the campus on Thursday, and the school made it official a few minutes ago: Dickerson, a 6-foot-8, 245-pound forward prospect from Atlanta, has signed financial-aid paperwork and will join the program this summer with the rest of UW’s now eight-player incoming class.

“We’re ecstatic to have Noah Dickerson join our program,” UW coach Lorenzo Romar said in a statement released by the school. “He is a forward that can score on the block, step outside and knock the shot down. He is very versatile and has a great knack for offensive rebounding, just has a nose for the ball. He’s a much needed addition to round out our roster, especially for our front line.”

Dickerson originally signed with Florida — he had offers from several SEC schools, among others — but was granted a release from his letter of intent after Gators coach Billy Donovan left to coach the Oklahoma City Thunder.

He joins an incoming class that includes freshmen Dejounte Murray, David Crisp, Matisse Thybulle, Marquese Chriss, Dominic Green and Devenir Duruisseau, junior-college transfer Malik Dime and Auburn transfer Matthew Atewe, who must sit out the upcoming season per NCAA transfer rules.

Dickerson is UW’s fifth top-100 recruit (per Scout.com) to sign in the 2015 class. That’s more than any other school in the country.

“I am so excited to have the opportunity to play at the University of Washington,” Dickerson said in a statement. “Coach Romar is a great coach and a great man which is a big thing for me and my family. I came up here last year and fell in love with the city and the school. I can’t wait to be a part of bringing something special back to the Washington program.” Read more »

4-star forward prospect Noah Dickerson commits to Huskies

The Huskies men’s basketball team received yet another commitment for its 2015 recruiting class.

Noah Dickerson, a 4-star power forward prospect from Atlanta who originally signed with the University of Florida before backing out following coach Billy Donavan’s departure to the NBA, announced via Twitter that he plans to play for the Huskies next season.

Dickerson is currently in Seattle taking an official visit. He had also scheduled a visit to California for Saturday, but is no longer taking that trip.

He should be an immediate contributor in a Huskies frontcourt that became perilously thin with the transfer of Jernard Jarreau and the graduation of Shawn Kemp Jr. Read more »

Sean McGrew, a 4-star running back prospect from St. John Bosco High School who is rated by Scout.com as the top running back on the West Coast, announced on Wednesday during a ceremony at his school that he plans to play for the Washington Huskies.

“I always had a great vibe with the coaches at Washington,” McGrew told Scout.com. “I could tell they really wanted me and I know I’ll be happy there for the next four years. That was a big part of it, I wanted a school where I would enjoy being a student and where the coaches had my back and that was Washington for me.” Read more »
