ESPN's Jeff Goodman released his annual list of college basketball players who plan to transfer to another school, and Huskies forward Gilles Dierickx is included on it (the list is in alphabetical order).
A UW spokesperson said there is no official news on Dierickx's reported transfer. ESPN's list does not specify a potential destination.
Dierickx, who will be a fifth-year senior next season, appeared in 14 games for the Huskies in 2014-15, averaging 1.0 points and 1.5 rebounds in 9.9 minutes. He played more toward the end of the season after injuries thinned UW's frontcourt, and started the final three games of the season. But he was mostly a deep reserve during his two-year UW career after redshirting in 2012-13 following his transfer from Florida International, where he played as a freshman.
UW is adding a six-player recruiting class this summer -- 6-foot-10 JUCO transfer Malik Dime is already on campus -- which would fill UW's allotment of 13 scholarships, assuming no defections. Dierickx's reported transfer would bump that number back down to 12, giving the Huskies the option to add a graduate transfer or another recruit, if coach Lorenzo Romar sees fit.
Never miss a local story.
There is also the matter of whether point guard Nigel Williams-Goss might declare for the NBA draft, or return to UW for his junior season. The NBA's early-entry eligibility deadline is April 26.
