More on Breshers

Just got off the phone a little while ago with Mike Lynch, the high school coach for Tyreese Breshers, who confirmed that Breshers is indeed headed to Washington.
“If he could wear a Husky hat now he would,” Lynch said with a laugh. “But I won’t let him get started that early. … I’ve got him for one more season and then he will be a Husky.”
Breshers is a 6-6 power forward from Price High in Los Angeles who had committed to Miami earlier this month.
“He had committed and then the family thought through that commitment and decided it was a little bit premature and decided to think it over,” Lynch said. “They contacted Miami at that time and let them know that he family wanted to reconsider the whole situation.
“They wanted him closer to home and be on the West Coast and Washington had always been at the top of the list until he came back from that visit to Miami. So upon further thinking and discussing it, they decided that the University of Washington is exactly where they wanted to be.”
As noted below, Breshers will be the third member of the Class of 2008, and speculation is that the Huskies could look to land one more.
Lynch said Breshers averaged 17 points, 11 rebounds and six blocked shots last season for Price.
“When we last measured him, he was 6-6, 260 pounds,” Lynch said. “But we’re not talking about an out-of-shape kid. He’s a kid that’s a good-sized guy who has a great around-the-basket game but for his size is also really athletic and can jump and run. I’d say he’s a power player with some finesse.”
Breshers is also said to be a good student, so doesn’t sound as if qualifying academically should be an issue.
