Boise State added its third and potentially final piece to Leon Rice’s ‘super team’ on Friday with the commitment of St. John’s transfer O’Mar Stanley.
Stanley made the announcement on Twitter.
The 6-foot-8 forward made 18 starts for St. John’s as a season last year, mostly towards the end of the season. He averaged 15.1 minutes per game and 4.7 points and 2.7 rebounds, although his production increased down the stretch.
Stanley had 15 points and 8 rebounds at No. 6 Marquette on March 4th and had at least eight points in three of the final seven games.
The athletic forward who brings an energy and tenacity that the Broncos could use off the bench, likely will rotate with Tyson Degenhart and Cam Martin at the 4-5 spots. He led St. John’s in field goal percentage in each of his two seasons, shooting an impressive 64.9 percent this past season.
The Overland Park, Kansas, native played one year at Link Academy in Branson, Mo., prior to signing with St. John’s. Boise State walk-on guard Kade Rice played at Link Academy the following year.
Stanley joins Kansas transfer Cam Martin and UC San Diego transfer Roddie Anderson as additions to the Boise State roster in the past month. The Broncos also add a trio of impressive high school players in Andrew Meadow, Chris Lockett and Emmanuel Ugbo.
Boise State went 24-10 last season and finished second in the Mountain West, but lost in the first round of the NCAA Tournament for the second year in a row. After the game, Rice told BNN he was aiming to build a ‘super team’ this offseason that could help get the Broncos over the hump next year.
Rice is slated to talk with the media later this morning. This story will be updated afterwards, and the full interview will be posted to the Bronco Nation News YouTube channel.
