Iweka still committed to UW

Anybody who also reads the basketball blog knows I had a chance to talk today with Rainier Beach athletic director Dan Jurdy.
In the course of our conversation I also asked Jurdy what he knew about the status of Emeka Iweka, the former Rainier Beach lineman who signed last year to play at Washington before being declared academically ineligible.
Jurdy said he had spoken with Iweka over the holidays and that Iweka is “still committed to coming back to the University of Washington. He said he wants to show his home town people that he is going to do what he said he’d do.”
Iweka is currently enrolled at Arizona Western College in Yuma, Ariz., Jurdy said. He redshirted this season while recovering from an Achilles injury he suffered playing basketball at Rainier Beach last January.
Jurdy said Iweka plans to play next season but hopes to finish his JC degree in two years so he will then have three years of Division-I eligibility remaining.
Iweka has been in contact with UW coaches and they are aware of his plans, Jurdy said.
As far as his academics, Jurdy said he has talked with Arizona Western coaches and they told him that Iweka “has passed every class so far.”
