Perris Blackwell, the former University of San Francisco standout, will transfer to Washington.
The 6-9, 240-pound junior forward will sit out the 2012-13 season and will have a year of eligibility remaining in 2013-14.
Last season Blackwell earned All-West Coast Conference honorable mention honors after averaging 12.7 points and 6.1 rebounds. He started 72 of 91 games the past three seasons.
“No. 1, he brings a wealth of experience in that he has played three years of college basketball,” coach Lorenzo Romar said in a release from UW. “He was an honorable mention all-conference player in the WCC.”
Blackwell joins Mark McLaughlin as 2012 signees
If there’s no subtractions from the roster, Washington has one scholarship remaining. The Huskies have extended an offer to big man Anthony Bennett, who is also considering Kentucky, Florida, Oregon and UNLV.
According to Adam Zagoria, Bennett received a home visit from Oregon, Florida and UNLV.
Washington is believed to be a long-shot in the Bennett sweepstakes and Plan B may involve William Howard, a 6-8 forward from France.
The spring signing period ends May 16.
