JC-Power Forward Inks With Broncos

Reggie Larry had initially planned on taking five official visits this spring, but the live-bodied 6-5 1/2, 220 pound forward from the College of Southern Idaho needed just a pair to make a decision.

After visiting both Boise State University and the University of Dayton this spring, Larry has opted to remain in Idaho and continue his career at Boise State.

CSI Head Coach Barret Peery told hsnewyork.scout.com that Larry signed with Boise State on Monday. He visited Boise State from Apr. 14-16 and Dayton from Apr. 21-23.

A native of Newark, N.J., Larry canceled planned trips to Marshall University, Butler University, St. Louis University and the University of Houston.

"I think that when it came down to it, Reggie was excited about staying in the area and being around the friends he's made at CSI," Peery said. "I think he found a good fit, he's comfortable there and he feels he can contribute immediately."

Even though he might be more built like a small forward, Larry's game is all about power, rebounding and finishing around the rim.

Larry averaged 14.7 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game during his sophomore campaign for the Golden Eagles, shooting 50 percent from the field and 55 percent from the foul line.

He especially shined for Southern Idaho at last month's NJCAA Tournament in Hutchinson, Kan., averaging 21 points and 11.7 rebounds in three games while shooting a robust 58 percent from the field.

"It's all I've been playing all of my life," Larry said when asked about his tendency to gravitate toward the low post. "When I was a freshman in high school, I was a two guard, but then I had this growth spurt and they threw me down in the post as a sophomore."

Larry will have two years of eligibility at Boise State.
