Two players from Germany highlight Jim Hayfords first recruiting class at Eastern Washington University (NCAA 1) for the 2012/13 season.

'We knew we needed to sign a class that would improve our front court, based on us having seniors we would be losing', said Hayford, who will also have 6-10 redshirt Martin Seiferth (208-F-90) from Berlin, Germany available next season. 'When you look at the players we are redshirting and the players we are signing, weve improved our front court and have added to our overall skill base.'
The two new Germans include 7-foot-1, 285-pound center Frederik Lothar Joerg (215-C-92) from Korschenbroich and 6-6, 220-pound forward Thomas Reuter (198-G-92) from Breckerfeld. Both attended tryouts for the U20 Germany squad in December 2010. Joerg represented Baskets Akademie Weser-Ems and Reuter represented BSV Wulfen and Team Phoenix Hagen.
Reuter also represented Germany in Hillsboro, Ore., in August 2011 in the fifth-annual NIKE Global Challenge. The three-day event showcases the top talents from across the world, as they competed in an eight-team, 12-game tournament.
Each one of these young men are gifted players who can help us in our goal of being a perpetual post-season team, Hayford added.

Hayford on Joerg: Frederik is obviously a very big person. He plays the game with great intelligence, and is effective in using his size to give us a great advantage at the low post. I think he will combine with Martin Seiferth to create one of the biggest post combinations in the Big Sky Conference. Joerg recently played for Akademie Weser-Ems in the U19 Nachwuchs Basketball Bundesliga League (NBBL), averaging 14.7 points, 10.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocked shots per game. He ranked second in the league in blocked shots, seventh in rebounding and fourth in double-doubles with seven (in 12 games). He made 59.0 percent of his shots from the field and also averaged 2.0 assists per game. His single game high for rebounds was 25. He will graduate from Gymnasium Eversten in 2012. He was born on Aug. 11, 1992, in Saarbrcken, Germany. His parents are Hermann and Martina Joerg. He intends on majoring at Eastern in business and economics.

Hayford on Reuter: Thomas has had great experience internationally representing the country of Germany. Hes a very physical player who has interior and perimeter skills. Hes an outstanding passer and a very strong rebounder. He is a great addition to our program. In 2010, Reuter helped the U18 German National Team to a runner-up finish at the Albert-Schweitzer Tournament. While playing with BSV Wulfen in the Bundesliga ProB second league in Germany, his team reached the 2010-11 playoffs. He averaged 11.0 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. While playing for Team Phoenix Hagen in the 2009-10 season in the Nachwuchs Basketball Bundesliga League (NBBL), his team reached the final 16 of the German Championships, as he averaged 16.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game. In 2010-11, he averaged 20.8 points, 8.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.4 steals per game. While playing for Team Phoenix Hagen in 2008-09, his team reached the quarterfinals of the U19 German Championships. His team lost in a best-of-three series against Alba Berlin. During the season, Reuter averaged 13.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game. He graduated from Theodor-Heuss Gymnasium in Hagen, Germany, in 2011. In 2007, his school placed third in the German Championship (officially named the Jugend trainiert fr Olympia). In 2006, he helped lead Nordrhein-Westfalen a county team from the North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) region -- win the German Championship. Reuter was born Jan 25, 1992, in Hagen, Germany. His parents are Helmut and Baerbel Reuter.
