Few surprises on the newly released 2014-15 Washington men’s basketball roster although it’s always interesting to note weight gains and losses.
Once again Jernard Jarreau made the biggest weight gain. The 6-10 junior who sat out most of last season after suffering a knee injury in the season opener added 20 pounds. He’s up to 240. Jarreau has gained 45 pounds the past three years. When the New Orleans native arrived in 2011 he was 195 pounds. He redshirted that season.
Senior Mike Anderson, who spent a lot of time in the low post last season, added 10 pounds. The 6-4 wing was was listed at 195 pounds last season and now he’s 205.
Nigel Williams-Goss and Shawn Kemp Jr. each added five pounds and they’re up to 190 and 255 respectively.
Not everyone gained weight.
Sophomore center Robert Upshaw and junior center Gilles Dierickx each dropped five pounds and they’re down to 250 and 230 respectively.
And for some reason 6-0 sophomore point guard Jahmel Taylor, who is the smallest person on the team, lost five pounds and is down to 170.
Jarreau and Taylor also changed jersey numbers. Jarreau is now 21 and Taylor 33.
No one grew taller, however, the roster did expand recently.
The Huskies added freshman walk-on KJ Garrett, a 6-3 point guard from Manhattan Beach, Calif. He’s one of two non-scholarship players joining Dan Kingma.
