Boise State Men’s Basketball Team Announces Roster Additions

Boise State announced the addition of four players to its roster Tuesday evening.

Robin Jorch, walk-ons Collin Landry and Cody Spjute, and transfer James Reid have joined the team and will be freshman during the 2015-2016 season.

Jorch comes to Boise from Berlin, Germany, having played in four FIBA European Championships as a center with the German National Team. He also played for RSV Eintracht Stahnsdorf, a Germany ProB League. During his four seasons with RSV he averaged 6.5 points and 3.1 rebounds per game, while shooting 30 percent from three-point range.


Jorch stands at 6-10 and weighs 257 pounds, his size and experience playing overseas should prove vital to the Broncos on the court this season. That is, assuming Jorch will be allowed to play; his eligibility is still being determined by the NCAA. Some expect Jorch to have to redshirt this season. If that happens, his skills will be greatly missed on the court.

Landry joins the team as a freshman walk-on from Jesuit High School in Portland, Oregon. He stands 6-3 and weighs 180 pounds. Landry lettered twice while in high school and earned second-team All-Metro League honors in his senior year.

Spjute (pronounced Spewt) is walking on as a freshman from Borah High School in Boise. He is 6-4 and is 195 pounds.




Spjute returns to Boise after serving on a two-year mission right out of high school. During his time at Borah HS, Spjute lettered three times and won back to back state championships in 2012 and 2013 with a 50-2 record during that time. In his senior year, Spjute was named First Team All-State for 5A schools, selected to play in the Idaho High School All-Star Game, and was named honorable mention All-Idaho by USA Today.

Reid joins the Broncos after transferring from Arkansas-Little Rock. Due to eligibility rules, he will have to sit out the 2015-2016 season. During his junior year at Arkansas-Little Rock, Reid averaged 7.9 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 1.4 assists per game will shooting 34.7 percent from beyond the three-point arc.
