Catching up with Jon Brockman

Jon Brockman concluded his basketball career nearly two months ago as Washington's all-time career rebounding leader and the second-leading scorer. He is currently finishing his degree, working out and showing NBA teams what he can offer. GoHuskies.com recently caught-up with Jon and talked about a variety of subjects.

GoHuskies: What has your life been like since the Husky basketball season ended?

Jon: "It has been pretty hectic. I've been doing quite a bit of traveling between here and Los Angeles. I have been training down there as well as here. In L.A., it is a different scene and I've been working with trainers that my agent has set up for me. I went to Virginia to play in the Portsmouth Invitational. That was about a week or so. It is going to start getting hectic pretty soon when I start working out for teams and attend the NBA Pre-Draft Combine (May 27-31 ) in Chicago."

GoHuskies: What kind of feedback have you received from NBA scouts?

Jon: "They see me kind of a Chuck Hayes at Houston or Reggie Evans at Philadelpha-type of player. A real energy-type of player who can get the offensive rebounds, defensive rebounds, defend. A guy who can do the little things for the team - dive on the floor, bring energy and excitement and do the little things for the team. Every team in the NBA has an unbelievable scorer on their team. They need guys to come in and be role players and I think that's how they see me at this point."
