Eastern Washington added a talented shooting guard to its 2013 quiver. Coach Jim Hayford said Wednesday he received a letter of intent from Sir Washington from Las Vegas, Nev.

Washington was All-Sunset region as a junior last season, averaging 14.5 points and five rebounds per game. He helped his team to a 23-5 record and an appearance in the Nevada state playoffs.

"We are excited that Sir is joining our basketball family," said Hayford in a news release. "He is a quality young man and a dynamic player. Sir will fit in well with our other young players to give us a foundation of four- and five-year players in our program."

 

Below is the news release from Eastern Washington:

Sir Washington, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound shooting guard from Las Vegas, Nev., has signed a letter of intent to attend Eastern Washington University and play basketball for the Eagles next year, Eastern head coach Jim Hayford has announced.

Washington was an All-Sunset Region selection as a junior, averaging 14.5 points, five rebounds and four assists as a junior in the 2011-12 season for Clark High School in Las Vegas. He helped the Chargers finish 23-5 and place second in the Southwest League behind eventual State 4A Champion Bishop Gorman. Clark ended the season with a 70-64 loss to Palo Verde in the Nevada Boys State Basketball Playoffs (4A Sunset Region).

"We are excited that Sir is joining our basketball family," said Hayford. "He is a quality young man and a dynamic player. Sir will fit in well with our other young players to give us a foundation of four- and five-year players in our program."

One of Washington's teammates at Clark was his cousin Kentrell Washington, who is now a freshman at Hofstra. They helped the Chargers reach the Sunset Region playoffs for the first time since 2006, improving by 15 wins in the 2012-13 season from an 8-14 finish the year before.

Sir and Kentrell played previously for Western High School, helping their team to state playoff appearances both years. Western was 21-8 in the 2010-11 season and 17-9 the year before. Sir averaged 13.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.6 steals per game as a sophomore, and 10.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.0 steals as a freshman.

Sir also played AAU basketball for the Las Vegas Prospects.

Personal: Born 6/17/95 in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is considering majoring in business at EWU. His parents are Melvin and Sharon Washington. His cousin Kentrell Washington was his high school teammate and is now a freshman at Hofstra University.
