BOISE, Idaho Greg Graham, head men’s basketball coach at Boise State University, announced today the signing of Reggie Larry, a 6-foot-6, 225-pound forward from the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls. Larry is Boise State’s first recruit from CSI since Steve Swanson, who played for the Broncos during the 1973-74 season.

“We are very excited about Reggie’s decision,” Graham said. “He provides us with a quality front line player who can come in and help us right away. He has the ability to play both inside and outside and his versatility will be very valuable to us.”

Larry averaged 15.2 points and a team-high 8.2 rebounds per game, while making 50.5 percent of his field goals as a sophomore. He was named to the 2006 Junior College All-National Tournament Team in Hutchinson, Kansas, after averaging 21.0 points and 11.7 rebounds in CSI’s three games. He led the tournament in rebounds per game grabbing 12 against both Southwestern Illinois and Southwest Tennessee and 15 against Monroe. He finished fifth in points per game in the tournament and 11th in points scored getting 17 points against Southwestern Illinois, 22 against Southwest Tennessee and 24 against Monroe.

The Newark, New Jersey, native also was named to the 2005-2006 Scenic West Athletic Conference All-Tournament Team after leading the Golden Eagles to the tournament title by averaging 23.5 points and 9.0 rebounds per game. He scored 27 points and grabbed nine rebounds in CSI’s semifinal win over the College of Eastern Utah and had 20 points and nine rebounds in the championship game against Dixie State College.

Larry led the SWAC in rebounding (offensive, defensive and total) and blocked shots (1.46 per game), while finishing fourth in scoring and eighth in field goal percentage. He scored a career-high 39 points in CSI’s season opener against Westchester and had 12 games of 20-plus points and 26 double-digit scoring games during his sophomore season. Larry also grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds twice and had 10 double-digit rebounding games. He had nine double-doubles as a sophomore and 10 in his career at CSI. As a freshman he averaged 6.5 points and 3.5 rebounds and had nine double digit scoring games and one double digit rebounding game.

Larry graduated from Barringer High School where he led his team to the New Jersey state tournament as a sophomore and again as a senior. As a senior he averaged 20.5 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks per game and was named to the all-city and all-county teams. As a junior he earned all-city honors after averaging 15 points, six rebounds and two blocks per game.

Larry is the fifth players the Broncos have signed. The other four (Shawn Rouse, Paul Noonan, Zach Moritz, and Tyler Young) signed during November’s early signing period.
