Northwestern State men’s basketball head coach Mike McConathy announced on Thursday that Wallace State Community College (Ala.) standout Ryan King signed to join the 2013-14 basketball squad.  

King, a 6-7 post player, averaged 8.0 points and six rebounds per game with 91 blocked shots his final season in junior college.

“We feel very fortunate to have landed Ryan as a Demon.  He adds much needed length and athleticism to our post play,” said McConathy.  “He is an outstanding rebounder and shot blocker, and is a lefty that can make plays around the basket.

“Ryan has played in an up-tempo program the last two seasons which will allow him to have a smooth transition into our program,” he said.  “He can also guard multiple positions on the floor which is a perfect fit for our defensive style.”

King led Wallace State to an 18-14 record, and was coached by John Meeks.   He transfers with a 2.7 grade point average.

“Ryan comes to us well-prepared from playing in a very competitive junior college conference, said McConathy. “Coach Meeks does an outstanding job preparing his players for the next level after junior college.”

The Greensboro, N.C., native graduated from Oak Ridge Military Academy.
