The Boise State men’s basketball team received a commitment last week from Fordham University graduate transfer Christian Sengfelder.
Sengfelder, who is from Leverkusen, Germany, has been a key player for the Fordham Rams the past three seasons. He made 160 3-pointers during his time, which put him in the top 10 in school history for 3-pointers made.
Sengfelder averaged 12.1 points and 5.1 rebounds per game last season while starting all 32 games for Fordham, the Rams ended the season with 13 wins in the Atlantic 10 Conference.
According to the Idaho Press-Tribune, the 6-foot-7-inch, 238 pound Sengfelder is very excited about his future here in Boise.
“I really like the coaching staff, and I liked my visit last weekend. I think it’s the best fit for me basketball-wise to take the next step,” said Sengfelder.
Sengfelder said his goals can be met and achieved with the Boise State Broncos basketball program next year.
“Hopefully I’ll be in a position with some responsibility and the opportunity to make it to the NCAA Tournament and win the conference, those were a couple goals I had when I decided to transfer and I think I can accomplish those at Boise State,” said Sengfelder.
As a graduate transfer, Sengfelder will be eligible to play for the Broncos this upcoming season with one season of eligibility remaining.
Sengfelder explained to the Idaho Press-Tribune that he hopes to be a vital part in a run to the NCAA Tournament.
“I’m going to give it everything I have,” said Sengfelder. “This is my last year, I want to make it my best year. I want to go dancing in March, so I’m going to give it everything I have every second.”
Boise State loses seniors Nick Duncan and James Reid from last season. Leading scorer, junior Chandler Hutchinson, declared for the NBA Draft, but won’t hire an agent and is expected to return for his senior year.
