Next season, senior guard Ryan Meis will be trading in the black and orange for red and gold.

On Wednesday, Meis inked a scholarship offer from Seton Hill University. Seton Hill is a liberal arts university located in Greensburg, Pa.

Meis said staying close to home played a big part in his decision.

“It’s going to be great for my family to have the opportunity to come and watch me play,” he said.

Seton Hill competes at the NCAA Division 2 level in the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference, more commonly known as the PSAC. The PSAC is known nationally as one of the best Division 2 conferences in the country. The league often attracts Division 1 dropouts and top-level junior college transfers.

I’m excited for the challenge to play against some of the best players in the country.”

Meis said he is looking forward to the opportunity. “I’m excited for the challenge to play against some of the best players in the country.”

Meis is very excited to play for second-year coach Kendrick Saunders. Saunders has an impressive coaching resume with previous stints at Army, Navy, and Princeton, among others.

“Coach Saunders was a big part of my decision to go to Seton Hill. I love the way he coaches and can’t wait to play for him.”

The Griffins run a complex offense called the Princeton offense. The offense involves a lot of ball screens, constant motion, and backdoor cuts often played with high IQ players. Meis should fit in well.

Before arriving on campus next fall, Meis is looking forward to playing his senior season with his teammates.

“I can’t wait to play with my best friends one more time and see what we can do.”

The Black Hawks start the season on December 6 against North Hills.
