Former Snohomish hoops star Brockman to enter UW Hall of Fame

Jon Brockman, a former McDonald’s All-American at Snohomish H.S., is part of UW’s 2021 induction class.

Jon Brockman is set to become a Hall of Famer.

The former Snohomish High School basketball star will enter the Husky Hall of Fame as part of the University of Washington’s 2021 induction class, the school’s athletic department announced Thursday.

Brockman, a 2005 Snohomish graduate and former McDonald’s high school All-American who went on to play three seasons in the NBA, will be the 26th men’s basketball player inducted into the Husky Hall of Fame.

Brockman compiled a record-setting career at UW, where he holds both the program’s career rebounding record (1,283) and single-season rebounding record (391 in his senior year). The 6-foot-7 power forward’s career rebounding total ranks fourth in Pac-12 history, and his 724 career rebounds in conference play are the most ever.

Brockman also is fourth on the Huskies’ all-time scoring list, with 1,805 career points. He had 96 career double-digit scoring games, which is second-most in program history.

Brockman, a four-year starter at UW, helped the Huskies reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament in his freshman season. As a senior, he led UW to the Pac-10 regular-season title and the second round of the NCAA Tournament. It was the program’s first outright conference championship in more than half a century.

Brockman averaged a double-double in each of his final two seasons with the Huskies, including career highs of 17.8 points and 11.6 rebounds per game as a junior.

Brockman received first-team All-Pac-10 honors in both his sophomore and senior years. He was a second-team All-Pac-10 selection as a junior and a first-team Pac-10 All-Freshman selection in his first season at UW. He also was awarded the Tom Hansen Pac-10 Medal as UW’s top senior male student-athlete for the 2008-09 year.

During his decorated high school career at Snohomish, Brockman led the Panthers to three Class 4A state quarterfinal appearances and three seventh-place state trophies. As a senior, he was named a McDonald’s All-American and The Associated Press all-classification state player of the year after averaging 30.2 points and 14 rebounds per game. He was twice named The Herald’s Boys Basketball Player of the Year.

After starring for the Huskies, Brockman was selected in the second round of the 2009 NBA draft with the 38th overall pick. He spent three seasons in the NBA — one with the Sacramento Kings and two with the Milwaukee Bucks. He then spent four seasons playing professionally in France and Germany.

Brockman is part of a star-studded 2021 Husky Hall of Fame class that also includes Jake Locker and Marques Tuiasosopo — two of the greatest quarterbacks in UW football history.

The other inductees are Claire Carter (women’s tennis), Eric Drew (men’s tennis), Kristen Rivera (softball), Craig Waibel (men’s soccer) and five individuals from the 1969 UW football team — players Gregg Alex, Ralph Bayard, Harvy Blanks and Lamar Mills and assistant coach Carver Gayton — who took a stand to protest racial injustice.

Brockman and the rest of the 2021 Husky Hall of Fame class will be inducted during the weekend of the UW football team’s Oct. 16 homecoming game against UCLA, with official ceremonies scheduled for Oct. 17.
