Dzmitry Ryuny Joins Oregon State Men’s Basketball Program
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State head coach Wayne Tinkle and his staff announced Tuesday the addition of Dzmitry Ryuny who signed an athletics aid agreement to join the Beaver basketball program beginning with the 2022-23 season.
Ryuny, a 6-foot-9 forward, played the last four seasons at the University of San Francisco and has one year of eligibility remaining.
He joins a class that includes 6-foot-8 forward Tyler Bilodeau, 6-foot-4 shooting guard Nick Krass, 6-foot-2 point guard Jordan Pope, 6-foot-5 wing Justin Rochelin, 6-foot-7 small forward Jayden Stevens, 6-foot-8 wing Michael Rataj and 6-foot-3 point guard Christian Wright.
"We're excited to be adding Dzmitry to our team," Tinkle said. "He is a tough, skilled 6-foot-9 player who can really shoot the ball. He's also a willing defender and strong rebounder, a combination we're thrilled about at the forward position. His maturity will really help with the development of our young team as well. Dzmitry is a great young man and a driven student, and I know Beaver Nation will love his commitment to our program."
