Wroten staying at Garfield; Bradley to Nevada

Tony Wroten, EA Sports’ national freshman of the year in basketball last season, is staying at Garfield. He showed up today for the first day of the school, after his family decided this past week to move from Renton to the Central District, his dad, Tony Wroten Sr., said.

“He grew up in that community, that’s where he went to all his various schools, from Kindergarten on up, and that’s where his support system is,” Wroten Sr. said. “…We had to get back in the community, and that’s what we did.”

Wroten had attended Seattle schools, including Garfield last season, as a non-resident by getting a release from the Renton School District. But non-residents can attend Seattle schools only “as long as the anticipated needs of resident students are met first,” according to district policy. Non-resident students must re-apply every year, and the Wrotens were informed earlier this summer he would not be able to attend Garfield as a non-resident.

Also, it appears that Avery Bradley will be attending Findlay Prep in Nevada.
