Bishop Gorman senior Jamal Bey commits to Washington

Updated September 30, 2017 - 4:41 pm

Bishop Gorman senior wing Jamal Bey will play college basketball at the University of Washington, Gaels assistant coach Rich Thornton comfirmed.

Bey committed to Huskies first-year head coach Mike Hopkins on Saturday afternoon. The commitment is nonbinding and will not be official until Bey signs a national letter of intent.

The early signing period begins on Nov. 8.

Bey averaged 17.1 points per game for Bishop Gorman in 2016-17 and helped the Gaels defeat Clark in the Class 4A state championship game.

The 6-foot-6 swingman followed his high school season with a strong summer for Thornton’s Vegas Elite AAU program, with which he played alongside fellow Division-I commits Trey Woodbury (UNLV) and Maka Ellis (Columbia).

Bey also had scholarship offers from UNLV, Arizona State, USC, Utah and Nevada.
