Chace Stanback considers transfer to UW UPDATED

Chace Stanback, a freshman basketball player who decided not to return to UCLA, has visited Washington and is considering joining the Huskies.
Stanback, a 6-foot-8 guard/forward, played sparingly in 25 games last season for the Bruins. He averaged 1.0 points and 0.7 rebounds, in 144 total minutes. He shot 40 percent (19 for 47) from the field, including a 33-percent mark from three-point range (7 for 21).
Stanback recently visited the UW campus, according to Harvey Kitani, his coach at Fairfax High School in Los Angeles.
“I know he took a visit there two weeks ago or so,” Kitani told the Los Angeles Daily News.
Kitani said Stanback has visited North Carolina State, and plans to visit UNLV. Stanback is originally from North Carolina.
Stanback is a cousin of Isaiah Stanback, the former Washington quarterback. Chace Stanback won two state titles at Fairfax and was named California Division I player of the year in 2007.
The Huskies have the limit of 13 players on scholarship for next season. Stanback will have to redshirt wherever he transfers, but would count against the scholarship limit.
One option would be to walk on and pay his own way but it’s uncertain if he would be willing to do so. IOne source said Stanback knew that would likely have to be his option at UW for a year and would have to weigh that against getting full rides immediately at other schools. He’s also thought to be considering a few other ACC schools and will likely make a decision in a week or two.
Because of the scholarship situation, UW’s chances of landing Stanback probably aren’t super great. But he is interested in part because of a long and solid relationship with UW coach Lorenzo Romar, who recruited him hard out of high school.
Sources said Stanback worked out with the Huskies a few weeks ago when he was in town. He’s known for having a good offensive game but didn’t fit in with the defensive-oriented Bruins. He is thought to be interested in transferring to a school where his offensive game would have a better chance to flourish.
