Huntington, Ind. - Huntington University basketball head coach Ty Platt announced his fourth and final signing for the 2011-12 basketball season. Ryan Boester, 5'10 guard from DeKalb High School, has signed his letter of intent to become a Forester this fall.
Boester, a three-time ALL-NHC pick and two-time KPC Media group All-Area selection, averaged 13.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.5 assists per contest for the Barons during his final campaign. He was also an IBCA top 60 workout nominee as a senior.
As a junior, Boester knocked down 93.5 percent (58-for-62) of his free throws to finish second in the state for free throw percentage and set a new DeKalb High School record. During this stretch he made 29 consecutive charity tosses to set a second Baron record.
For his career, Boester drained 137 threes and shot an impressive 38 percent from behind the arc. He also went 30 consecutive games with a three.
"We are very excited to have Ryan join our program and continue his basketball career as a Forester," said Coach Platt. "As a player Ryan is a well rounded point guard. He can handle the ball well, see the open man and get his teammates involved. He can also score and is a confident, strong, athletic kid who has a lot of potential. We think Ryan will have a great career at HU."
Boester is the son of Scott and Kathy Boester from Auburn, Indiana.
