In case you missed it, Charles Garcia, the Seattle University junior star and former Washington Husky recruit, announced today that he’s leaving school a year early and will declare for the NBA draft after the season.
In a statement released by the school, Garcia said it has “always been a dream of mine to play in the NBA.”
The 6-foot-10 forward has averaged 18.7 points and 8.3 rebounds. Many scouts consider him a raw project, but they marvel at his physique and ability to handle the ball for somebody so tall.
“There may be a handful of players in the country who have as much upside as Charles,” Seattle U. coach Cameron Dollar said in the statement. “I am extremely proud of how he has grown and developed throughout the year. I support his decision 100 percent and look forward to watching him reach his tremendous potential in the NBA. I will be forever grateful for all he has done for the university and our basketball program.”
Garcia, a junior college transfer, was headed to Washington but was denied admission into the school.
