Garfield High guard who has national merit tops Huskies’ list

SEATTLE – Tony Wroten highlighted a group of four high school players who signed national letters of intent to play college basketball at Washington on Wednesday, Huskies coach Lorenzo Romar announced.

Wroten, from Seattle’s Garfield High School; guard Hikeem Stewart, from Seattle’s Rainier Beach; 6-foot-10 Jernard Jarreau, from New Orleans; and Andrew Andrews, from Portland, signed with the Huskies.

Wroten is considered the gem of the class. The 6-4 guard has been rated among the top players in the country since his freshman year of high school. He missed his junior season with a knee injury, but played for the 2010 USA basketball developmental national team this past summer.

Stewart is the younger brother of former Rainier Beach stars Lodrick and Rodrick Stewart, who went on to careers at Southern California and Kansas, respectively.

Jarreau, from McDonogh 35 Senior High School, missed his junior season with a broken wrist.

Andrews averaged 25 points per game as a junior at Benson Tech High.
