Martin Breunig Commits to Washington

Martin Breunig, a 6-foot-9 forward, who originally committed to play for Gary Williams and the Maryland Terrapins was granted a release after the coaching change that led Mark Turgeon to College Park.

Since being released, Breunig had two schools in mind: South Florida and Washington.

Breunig finished up his visit to South Florida earlier this week and it didn't take him long to announce his intentions to sign with the Washington Huskies.

Breunig gave Lorenzo Romar his fifth commitment in the 2011 class and the big the Huskies desperately needed.

Breunig joins a class that features Tony Wroten Jr, Hikeem Stewart, Jernard Jarreau and Andrew Andrews that is certainly going to help continue success at Washington.

Breunig is a face-up mid-range four man that can attack the defense with his solid jump shot. He has to develop more post moves and utilize his physical talents but his overall game is solid and this is a great pickup for the Huskies.
