Husky hoop squad adds 7-footer

7-foot center Robert Upshaw has announced he’s transferring to the University of Washington. Upshaw averaged 4.1 points and 3.8 rebounds as a freshman for Fresno State last year.¬†The Bulldogs¬†kicked Upshaw off the team last month for violations of athletic department policy. He’d been suspended twice for a total of four games during his time at Fresno.

Upshaw was a four-star recruit at San Joaquin Memorial High School in California, averaging 18 points, 11 rebounds and 5 blocks a game as a senior. Washington beat out Oregon to land Upshaw. He’ll have to sit out the 2013-14 season and will be eligible in 2014-15.
