Washington added junior-college transfer Quevyn Winters to the 2014 incoming class.
The 6-6 guard at Indian Hills Community College in Iowa signed scholarship papers with the Huskies on Wednesday.
Winters, who played one season at Duquesne in 2012-13, will have two years of eligibility at UW.
“We’re excited to add Quevyn to our program,” Washington coach Lorenzo Romar said in a statement released by the school. “He’ll bring a multitude of intangibles to Seattle as a kid who has a history of winning. He’s already played Division I basketball and averaged almost 10 points as a freshman at Duquesne before playing in the junior college national championship game for Indian Hills. He’s a very good shooter with a lot of experience and we’re delighted to have him.”
Winters was a co-captain at Indian Hills CC and helped the Warriors to a 34-3 record during the 2013-14 season. He averaged 11.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.8 turnovers while starting 26 of 33 games. He also shot 40.5 percent (138 of 341) from the field, 33.7 percent (60 of 178) on three-pointers and 72.7 percent (56 of 77) on free throws.
Washington’s incoming class also includes Timberline High guard Donaven Dorsey and Tristan Etienne, a center/forward from Abbotsford, British Columbia.
The Huskies still have one remaining scholarship and are looking to bring in a big man to replace junior forward Desmond Simmons, who decided to transfer.
According to several recruiting sites, Washington has extended scholarship offers to Rainier Beach High forward Djuan Piper and Westview High (Avondale, Ariz.) forward Andre Adams
Piper is also considering Minnesota and Gonzaga while Adams is being courted by most Pac-12 teams including Arizona State, which appears to be the team to beat for his services.
The Huskies also reportedly offered a scholarship to forward Johnny Zuppardo who was expected to visit UW this weekend. However, he signed with Mississippi State today.
