Rainier Beach transfer Shaqquan Aaron eligible to play

Junior Shaqquan Aaron, a four-star recruit who transferred to Rainier Beach before the season and already has multiple D-I offers, is eligible to play this season, according to Rainier Beach coach Mike Bethea.

Aaron (6-foot-7, 175 pounds) played at Mater Dei High School in California as a freshman, but transferred to Taft High School last year, according to Max Preps. Aaron never played at Taft and spent most of his sophomore year being home schooled.

At the time of his transfer, Max Preps wrote that there was “general uncertainty regarding his status.” Bethea said that’s not the case.

Aaron and his family moved to Seattle, Bethea said, and is scheduled to play this season. Beach, the defending 3A state champs, is once again expected to compete for the state title this year behind returners Marquis Davis, DJuan Piper, Elijah Foster, Keiwuan Miller and Will Dorsey.

Aaron has offers from Washington, UCLA, Arizona, Connecticut, Syracuse and St. John’s and is the state’s No. 1 player, according to ESPN.com. He is also the site’s 14th-best small forward in the country in the class of 2014.

ESPN has Aaron listed as the 39th-best player in the country and Rivals.com rates him as a four-star recruit.
