HOUSTON - With the closing of the fall signing period, the University of Houston Men's Basketball program officially welcomed Yates High product J.C. Washington after he recently signed a National Letter of Intent.

Checking in at 6-foot-6 and 220 pounds, Washington has competed just blocks away from the UH campus for head coach Greg Wise. He has been a part of a nationally recognized program that has won two state championships in the last five years and been to four state title games during that span.

In the preseason, Washington was rated a Top-5 senior in the greater Houston area by RCS Sports. In the Lion's 2013-14 season opener, Washington scored 26 points with 14 rebounds, six blocks and two steals against Prime Prep and is currently averaging 28.5 points, 13.0 rebounds and 5.5 blocks per game.

"We are pleased to welcome J.C. to our program," said head coach James Dickey, who is in his fourth year with the Cougars. "He is an outstanding rebounder and shot blocker who can run the floor. J.C. is a tough, physical player with tremendous potential, and our fans should be excited to see him take the floor in 2014-15."

Washington was ranked as a 3-star recruit by ESPN, Rivals.com and Scout.com and will compete as a freshman with the Cougars during the 2014-15 season.

He becomes the second member of the Cougars' signing class, joining Wesleyan Christian Academy (Greensboro, N.C.) point guard JaQuel Richmond.
