Riley Barker commits to Portland.

Post by IronLions on Thu Sep 24, 2009 3:27 pm

Eric Reveno's Portland program procured a commitment from one of Canada's top big men.

Riley Barker, a 6-foot-10 standout from White Rock Christian Academy in British Columbia, is on board.

Last year, Barker tossed in 16 points and 12 boards a game.

Awesome news, thanks IronLions!

At first blush, he seems like a great kid and a good fit for Rev and the program...

Perhaps he's had a growth spurt? Scout.com lists him as 6' 5", but the news article says 6' 9", and IronLions mentioned 6' 10". Suspect

The EDP link mentioned 6'10".
He's probably still growing.

Awesome...you knew his career wasn't going to end with that injury.

Hey, and I see he's not even the only Canadian on that roster. Jahmal Jones from Ryerson will be his teammate there.
