Boise State Men's Basketball Signs 6-foot-2 Westly Perryman to National Letter of Intent

BOISE, Idaho - Greg Graham, head men’s basketball coach at Boise State University, announced today the signing of Westly Perryman, a 6-foot-2, 180 pound guard from Monroe College in Bronx, New York, to a National Letter of Intent.


Perryman is currently a sophomore at Monroe and has started in all five of the Mustangs games this season. He is averaging 16.8 points and 4.2 rebounds per game, in addition to tallying 15 steals and 17 assists. The Mustangs are currently 5-0 for the 2008-09 season.


As a freshman, Perryman started in 25 of Monroe’s 32 games. He led the Mustangs averaging 15.3 points per game and in minutes played with 893. The freshman led the team in 10 statistical categories, including rebounds (4.4 rpg), assists (2.6 apg) and steals (2.5 spg). The guard from Boston, Massachusetts, led the Mustangs to an overall record of 24-8, and 4-2 in conference play.


As a freshman, Perryman was named a third team NJCAA All-American, was Co-MVP of Region XV, and a First-Team Region Tournament All-star. He was also invited to Jerry Mullen’s prestigious Top 100 Junior College Camp.


While at East Boston High School, Perryman averaged 20 points, 6 assists and 6 rebounds per game. He was ranked Massachusetts No. 1 guard, he was All-State in his senior year, an All-Scholastic player, a three year All-Star, named to the Boston Herald Dream Team, and was team captain and MVP.


“Wes is a very explosive guard that can play the one and the two position,” said Graham. “He is very strong and quick scoring guard. He brings a lot of speed and athleticism to that spot, which will be a great addition to our style of play.”


Perryman, who will join the Broncos in the fall of 2009 at the end of his sophomore season, is the second player signed by Graham and the Broncos during the current signing period. He will join power forward Sam Hicks from Liberty Christian.


Excerpt on Hicks from Monroe College’s 2008-09 media guide:

“Boise State is going to be very happy with their new guard next year because Westly can do it all. Backed by a solid work ethic that fuels his ferocious on-court energy, Westly’s repertoire includes the quickest moves of any player on the court, an uncanny instinct for the game of basketball, through-the-roof leaping abilities, and a deadeye jumper from literally any spot on the court.”
