SEATTLE – University of Washington’s 2014-15 recruiting class got even better on Wednesday as head coach Lorenzo Romar announced the signing of 6-6 guard Quevyn Winters (Milwaukee, Wis.). Winters, who will have two years of eligibility remaining, joins an already talented class which includes local standout Donaven Dorsey (Lacey, Wash.) and Tristian Etienne (Abbotsford, British Columbia).
“We’re excited to add Quevyn to our program,” said Romar. “He’ll bring a multitude of intangibles to Seattle as a kid who has a history of winning. He’s already played Division I basketball and averaged almost 10 points as a freshman at Duquesne before playing in the junior college national championship game for Indian Hills. He’s a very good shooter with a lot of experience and we’re delighted to have him.”
Winters started his collegiate career with the Dukes where he saw action in all 30 games during the 2012-13 season and averaged 9.6 points on 44.2 percent shooting from the field. At Indian Hills Community College, Winters averaged 11.9 points and added 4.9 rebounds per game while helping the team reach the championship game at the 2013-14 NJCAA National Tournament.
After playing high school ball at Washington High in Milwaukee, Winters headed to the M.A.C.K Prep Elite Training Academy in Charlotte, N.C. where he averaged 22.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 2011-12.
UW’s 2014-15 class will now feature Winters, along with Dorsey, who is ranked 56th nationally amongst small forward according to ESPN.com, and 6-10 Etienne who is listed as one of the top 10 players in Canada.
