Where are they now? Tracking last year’s Washington high school all-state boys basketball players

More than eight months have passed since the 2020 Washington high school boys basketball state championships — the last high school sports event to take place before the COVID-19 shutdown. 

While high school sports remain on hold in Washington, many of last year’s seniors are preparing to compete on a bigger stage in college. 

Here’s a closer look at where the seniors on our 2019-2020 all-state boys basketball teams are now:

COLLEGE: Mullins is playing college basketball for Saint Mary’s College in Moraga, Calif.

In Mount Si’s run to its first state title since 1977, Mullins played facilitator, floor general, scorer and defensive stalwart. The 6-foot-6 guard takes those skills to Randy Bennett’s system in the WCC — a team that is looking for an effective guard to replace Jordan Ford.

Eason was perhaps the brightest star at the state tournament, leading Garfield to a 3A state title. He’s figured into a strong freshman class at Cincinnati, which competes in the AAC. “(Eason) is really long and athletic, and his wingspan can surprise you sometimes in practice,” Bearcats center Chris Vogt told The Cincinnati Enquirer.
