John Riek signs with Mississippi State.
John Riek, once projected as a lottery pick in the 2008 NBA draft, before he got injured has just signed with the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Just a couple of days after superstar Renardo Sidney, signed with the team. John Riek, 7-2, and Renardo Sidney, 6-11, together can become the twin towers that can propel the Bulldogs into the NCAA tournament and beyond. Though, don’t expect much from Riek, this year as he is still recovering from a serious leg injury. Riek, also has some serious baggage last year he choose the Cincinnati Bearcats, but didn’t play one game for them because he was academically ineligible and was not cleared by the NCAA clearinghouse. Also, the true age of Riek is not known and several sources believe he might be lying about his real age.
