Two promising prospects have signed letters of intent to play at Boise State.
Guard Chandler Hutchison (6-6) and forward David Wacker (6-9) have agreed to play for Coach Leon Rice and, truth be told, what high school basketball player in their right mind wouldn't want to?
Hutchison is ranked as the #11 prospect in California after averaging 13.8 points and 4.8 rebounds last year. Hutchison helped Mission Viejo to a 26-5 record and a beth in the CIF quarterfinals.
“Chandler is a very skilled, athletic guard who has the chance to be a very special player,” Rice said. “He is going to have a terrific senior year.”
Wacker is ranked as the #21 center in the country and #11 prospect in Texas. He averaged 14.7 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.7 blocked shots as a junior in leading Converse High School to a 29-8 record and the third round of the Texas Class 5A State Tournament. He was tabbed 5A All-State.
“In David Wacker we got a great on- and off-the-court leader who will not only impact our basketball program but will impact the campus and community,” Rice said. “Not to mention he’s a very talented young big man.”
“We are very excited about both of these young men because of their tremendous upside,” said Rice. “The best basketball is definitely still ahead for both Chandler and David. They have a great work ethic to go along with their ability and they’re going to continue to improve here at Boise State. They both come from great families and are really high character young men.”
