Boise State men’s basketball signed four-star recruit Sadraque Nganga from Chandler, Arizona,  head coach Leon Rice announced Wednesday, April 13. 

The 6-foot-10 forward is one of the top-100 recruits in the country and the highest-rated recruit in program history to sign with the Broncos. 

“We are thrilled to have Sadraque join our basketball family,” Rice said. “Sada is a very talented young man with unlimited potential and a tremendous amount of upside. We look forward to helping him fulfill his potential as both a player and a person.”

Originally from Angola, Nganga has been ranked 76th by 247Sports and 86th by ESPN. He was previously ranked in the top 20 before suffering an injury during his junior season in high school. 

The forward out of AZ Compass Prep turned down multiple offers from other schools including the University of Arizona, Auburn University, the University of Kentucky and the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) to come play for Boise State.

Boise State men’s basketball finished the most successful season in school history with 27 program-record wins, all while claiming the Mountain West regular season and tournament championship titles. The team earned a No. 8 seed spot in the NCAA tournament before losing to the University of Memphis, 64-53 in the first round
