The Washington Huskies Men’s Basketball coaching staff received some fantastic news as they continue to the massive offseason overhaul of their roster.
Earlier this afternoon, junior college power forward Langston Wilson announced his commitment to the University of Washington via a message he posted on Twitter.
Wilson comes to Montlake after playing junior college at Georgia Highlands College in Rome, Georgia. The Huskies coaching staff will rely on his extreme athleticism, experience, and talent, at a position where defense and scoring will be highly welcomed.
At 6-foot-9, 215 pounds, Wilson is lanky and will bring considerable height to the Washington front line. While at Georgia Highlands, he averaged 10.1 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks per game as a freshman. Wilson will have a full three years of eligibility to play for the Washington Huskies.
Wilson is currently ranked the #1 JUCO (junior college) power forward and also the #2 overall JUCO player in the nation according to 247Sports Composite JUCO. He was formerly committed to Alabama before changing course and deciding on the Huskies.
Jerry Meyers from 247Sports wrote this evaluation of Wilson:
“An exceptional leaper with length. Runs the floor extremely well. The lefty is tough to defend in the paint when attacking the rim. Keeps the defense honest as a three-point shooter. Dangerous offensive rebounder. Has room to improve as a ball-handler and passer. Versatile defender. Has a lot of upside, but must gain weight and get stronger.”
He had offers from Alabama, Alcorn State, Arizona State, Arkansas-Little Rock, and Washington. Wilson has been affected by a genetic heart condition throughout his life and needed medical clearance to play from doctors before he enrolled at Georgia Highlands College.
The Huskies have made massive changes to their roster, including players and the coaching staff since the end of last season. Earlier today, the University of Washington announced the official additions of Terrell Brown Jr., Emmitt Matthews Jr., and Samuel Ariyibi.
