MIKE SULLIVAN'S VIEW OF RYAN ROSSITER'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Ryan in an intriguing prospect. Coaches who were watching him over the past week indicated he had committed to Siena.

A senior with some upside,Rossiter has some agility but will need to work on footspeed as well as side to side moment. This is not unusual for any big man as they approach the division one level next season.

Ryan seems to be composed too and moves smartly without the basketball. He has good chemistry with his guards and Ryan does a good job in giving a passing lane to receive entry passes.

Rossiter recorded 14 points last weekend in a first round playoff game in the CHSAA at Holy Cross High School in Flushing, New York. Ryan, at times, had to battle 6-foot-10 big man Morgan Kelly. He did a nice job in moving around and looking for seams to score.
