Perris Blackwell to join Huskies

SEATTLE - Perris Blackwell, a three-year letterwinner for San Francisco, will transfer to play basketball at the University of Washington, Husky Coach Lorenzo Romar announced on Monday. The University received Blackwell's financial aid agreement Monday. He will have one year of eligibility at Washington after sitting out the 2012-13 season due to NCAA transfer rules.

Blackwell, a 6-foot-9, 240-pound forward, was honorable mention West Coast Conference in 2012 after he led the Dons with 6.1 rebounds per game and was second on the team with 12.7 points per game. He ranked 11th in the conference in scoring, second in field goal percentage (57.5% on 172-of-299 shooting), ninth in rebounding and second in offensive rebounds (2.9 per game).

Romar knows the Huskies are getting someone that will be able to step onto the court and help right away once Blackwell becomes eligible.

"No. 1, he brings a wealth of experience in that he has played three years of college basketball," said Romar of Blackwell, who started 72 of 91 career games for San Francisco. "He was an honorable mention all-conference player in the WCC."

Romar added: "He is someone that you throw the ball to in the middle he can use both hands and is crafty around the basket. He has a high, high basketball IQ and really understands how to play."
