UW had now announced that 7-foot junior college center Aziz N'Diaye of Dakar, Senegal, has signed a letter of intent and is expected to join the team for the 2010-11 season. (The name is pronounced AH-zeese EN-jai...like "eye")
"We're really excited to have Aziz," coach Lorenzo Romar said in a UW press release. "When you play in the NCAA Tournament and continue to advance, the one thing you see more and more of is size. Aziz is a seven-footer and definitely fills a need there. At the same time, he is very athletic and can get up-and-down the court."
More information is available at GoHuskies.com. And even more will be available later tonight after Romar meets with the media.
