News out of Boise today has 6'10" forward Robin Jorch from Germany heading to Idaho to become a member of the Broncos basketball team.
Sources tell me the Boise State men's basketball team is getting a late 2015-16 addition: 6-foot-10 German forward Robin Jorch.— Dave Southorn (@IDS_Southorn) August 24, 2015
Jorch initially signed with Liberty, but was released from it once the Flames changed coaches. http://t.co/PuN3OgB8wB— Dave Southorn (@IDS_Southorn) August 24, 2015
Jorch has spent four years with the German National team where he averaged 12.4 points per game to go along with 5.3 rebounds per game. He also has a good shot from range relative to his imposing 6'10" frame. While with RSV Eintracht Stansdorf in 2014-15, he went 28 of 88 (32%) from three-point range.
Questions do exist with his eligibility as he has been out of high school for a few years now. Even if he loses eligibility for the upcoming season, he will still be able to practice with the team.
Jorch plans on enrolling in classes immediately. Boise State has not made this acquisition official. However, with the recent departure of guard Dezmyn Trent and center Kevin Allen, scholarships have opened making this move all but official.
