WEIGHT: 205 Pounds

POSITION: Center/Power Forward

HIGH SCHOOL HEAD COACH: Bob Besignano (12th Season)

BRIAN TOWEY'S VIEW ON RYAN ROSSITER'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: Rossiter was brilliant at times for Farrell in a game I watched this season, scoring 28 points (19 in the second half) with 10 rebounds.

Ryan showed the type of versatility and offensive polish that should make him a valuable contributor at Siena next year, connecting on a pair of three-pointers, working the baselines, and scoring on the low block. He did a solid job on the boards, ran the floor, and showed some toughness.

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.
