Gant to redshirt UPDATED

UW coach Lorenzo Romar has announced that freshman forward Darnell Gant will redshirt this season.
Gant, a 6-8 forward from Crenshaw High in Los Angeles, said he initiated the decision after thinking about it for the last week or so.
“I decided to do it for personal reasons to make myself a better player,” Gant said. “To take a whole year off and just work hard and season myself.”
Another consideration is to put on weight and strength. Gant said he weighs about 206 pounds and would like to get up to 220, if not a little more, by next season.
“I want to get bigger and stronger and get in the weight room and just do everything I can do to better myself,” Gant said.
Gant said Romar was “behind me 100 percent” in his decision.
His decision leaves UW with 12 active players for the season, but just 11 on the current roster with senior guard Ryan Appleby out for another month or so with a broken thumb.
Gant played six minutes in UW’s 86-77 exhibition win over Seattle Pacific last week, going 1-3 from the field with two points, one rebound, one foul and one turnover.
He becomes the first Husky to redshirt for non-injury reasons since Joe Wolfinger during the 2005-06 season. Wolfinger also redshirted primarily for an extra year of physical development. Wolfinger and Gant are the only two UW players during Romar’s tenure to redshirt for non-injury reasons.
BY THE WAY — The game tonight is not on television and the school cannot webcast it due to licensing rules. It is available on the Husky Radio Network and through GoHuskies.com.
