UW’s all-time, all-walk-on team

In honor of Brendan Sherrer who will play his final home game tomorrow, I decided to put together a collection of the greatest Washington walk-ons in the modern era.
Thanks to Rick Lund who gave me the idea and special thanks to those who helped in the process. I’m sure we left some people, but this gives us a chance to recognize players who at least began their Husky basketball careers as a walk-on.
Some of them went on to great fame and fortune in the NBA while others waited patiently on the bench until their names were called.
WASHINGTON’S ALL-WALK-ON TEAM
G Nate Robinson … 5-9/180 … 2003-05
Comment: The two-sport star was technically a basketball walk-on who had a football scholarship. A two-time All-Pac-10 selection, he ranks 18th among all-time UW scorers with 1,283 career points.
G Al Moscatel …… 6-2/185 … 1986-87
Comment: Transfer from San Diego’s Mesa College known for making big shot in the final seconds. Won the Pac-10 Sixth Man of the Year award as a junior.
G Will Conroy …. 6-2/195 … 2002-05
Comment: He arrived without a scholarship, but was given one only after another recruit failed to qualify. Conroy is UW’s all-time leader in assists for a career (515) and season (219 in 2005).
G Brandon Burmeister …. 6-4/195 … 2004-07
Comment: Four-year letter winner. Played in 73 games, averaged 2.4 points and shot 35.3 percent on three-pointers.
F Chris Walcott … 6-9/215 … 1997-2000
Comment: Four-year letterwinner. Started as a senior and averaged 9.2 points and 4.4 rebounds.
Honorable mention: Bryan Brown (1998-2001), Matt Fletcher (2005), Andrew Moritz (1999-00), Andy Roberson (1993-96), Reggie Rogers (1983-85), Zane Potter (2004-06), Brendan Sherrer (2010-11).
