Topeka Native Ediger Signs With Pitt State Basketball

Updated:

PITTSBURG — Pittsburg State men's basketball coach Kevin Muff announced today (Apr. 21) that Topeka native Jake Ediger has signed a national letter of intent to play for the Gorillas starting in the 2011-12 season.

Ediger (6-6, 195) will come to Pitt State from Washburn Rural High School where he was selected both the Centennial League Player of the Year and the City Player of the Year this past winter.

Additionally, Ediger garnered first-team Kansas Class 6A All-State honors and he was named to the second-team All-State All-Class squad after averaging 18 points and 6.4 rebounds per game while helping WRHS to a 6A state tournament berth.

"Jake is a player I have followed closely over his career," Muff said. "His father, Ron, and I played college basketball together at Cloud County and we've remained close friends, so watching Jake develop into the the type of player he's become has been like watching your own son in some respects.

"Jake can play both the four and five positions. He has a high basketball IQ and he plays extremely hard. He's the type of kid we're excited to be a part of our program. He will fit in perfectly with what we want to do."

Jake is the son of Ron and Sall Ediger. An honor roll student with a 3.8 high school GPA, he anticipates majoring in pre-law at Pittsburg State.
