What does Washington redshirt mean for Deacs?

On a day that doesn’t usually lead to any breaking news — Media Day — Wake Forest rolled out the announcement that senior center Andre Washington is expected to redshirt this season. That doesn’t sound like much news if you take into account that Washington has only averaged 6.2 minutes a game over three seasons.

However, it does create at least two major questions: Why is a program that is already facing a lack of depth this season planning to sit a player who can provide some, and more important, why is a program facing a scholarship deficit next year pushing someone who should be gone into that season?
