NCAA: What Breshers' Retirement Means For Washington Recruiting

Percy Allen of the Seattle Times is keeping us all up-to-date on the Breshers situation and after talking to Huskies coach Lorenzo Romar is reporting that the seven-foot transfer center Aziz N'Diaye will help to fill the spot in the rotation.

But given that Breshers had an impact on the interior but wasn't necessarily a big minute player, the more intriguing news might be the impact the retirement has on recruiting.

Scout.com's Dave Telep is reporting Jernard Jarreau, a 6-10, 190 pound forward from New Orleans, is considering UW after committing to Virginia Commonwealth. Jarreau told Scout.com: "VCU is my No. 1 choice but I want to keep my options open."

Scout.com is also reporting Jarreau has offers from UW, VCU, Tulane, Tulsa and Louisiana Tech. The Huskies are also hot on the trails of Norvel Pelle, who is rated the No. 2 center in the class of 2011 by Rivals.com. Coincidentally, he attended the same high school - Frederick K.C. Price High in Los Angeles - as Breshers.

As Romar told Allen, Breshers was not a 25 minute per game guy. If opening up the roster spot leads to stronger recruiting in the future, the long-term impact on the program of losing Breshers will be minimal.
