BOISE, Idaho - Boise State men's basketball coach Leon Rice announced a new addition to his program, Wednesday (June 30), as 7-1, 230-pound center Isaac Oeltjen has signed a financial aid agreement for the 2010-11 academic year.
"Isaac has a lot of basketball potential," Rice said. "He is a hard working kid that has been through some health problems, but he has those corrected now. With his character, work ethic and desire to be a player I think he is really going to develop."
Oeltjen played his high school basketball at Red Wing HS in Welch, Minn. After graduating in 2009, he did not play basketball or attend school this past year while recovering from injury.
"He's got a high level of basketball skill for his size. If he hadn't had problems with his health, he would have been a high level recruit. Because of that he has become an unknown, but it gave us a chance to get him here."
