ESPN No. 25 ranked high school junior power forward and Washington commit Ed Chang is transferring to Brandon Roy’s Garfield HS (Seattle, WA) for his senior year.

 

The 6-8, 190-pound Chang averaged 18.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, and a whopping 4 blocks this season for Papillion-La Vista HS (NE), leading the team to a 24-5 record and the Class A state championship game.

 

Now the Nebraska native is moving to Seattle’s Garfield High where he will play for former Portland Trailblazer star and Washington Husky great Brandon Roy.

 

“We wish Edward nothing but the best in the years to come,’’ Papillion-La Vista principal Jerry Kalina told the Omaha.com. “He represented Monarch Nation with nothing but class. We will miss his long-range bombs on Friday nights.”

 

In moving to the northwest, Chang is hoping to learn from Roy, who averaged 18.8 points in six NBA seasons for the Blazers, and led Nathan Hale HS (Seattle) to an undefeated season and the Washington state 3A championship last year.

 

Roy, who was the 2017 Naismith Trophy Coach of the Year, left Nathan Hale this offseason to take the head job at basketball power Garfield.

 

“I understand players do want to play for me; I can’t turn a kid away,” Roy told the Seattle Times.

 

Garfield is getting a very athletic and versatile big man in Chang.

 

“While his size allowed him to play inside in Papio’s defensive scheme, his ability to handle the ball and get hot from three-point range made him a nightmare matchup for opponents,” wrote The Lincoln Journal Star’s Chris Basnett.
