Humboldt State Athletics

Humboldt State men’s basketball has announced the signing of three out-of-area recruits — John Reitenbach, JT Riddick and Jordan Robinson. 

“We would like to welcome John, Jordan and JT to Humboldt State and the Lumberjack family,” interim head coach Rich Mendoza said. “All three of these student athletes complement each other’s style of play and will mix in well with our returning roster. 

“They also bring a winning mentality and commitment to academic success, which is vital to the program’s future success.”

Reitenbach is a 6-6 forward from Stockton from Edison High School in Stockton, where he averaged 15 points and 11 rebounds per game as a senior.

“John is a high character self-motivated young man who is just scratching the surface of his basketball talents,” Mendoza said 

Riddick is a 6-9 forward who is transferring to Humboldt State from the University of Texas-Tyler. 

He previously played at Allan Hancock Junior College, where he was a teammate of current Lumberjack Gabrys Sadaunykas.

“We are very excited to welcome JT to the Lumberjack Family,” added Mendoza. “He comes from a winning tradition at Allan Hancock Junior College.”

Riddick led the state in blocked shots while at the community college.

Robinson, meanwhile, is a 6-2 guard from Tucson, Arizona. He is transferring from Pima Community College, where he averaged 13.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 5.3 assists this past season.

“Jordan brings an immediate impact and maturity at the guard position and comes from a great basketball program at Pima Community College under coach Brian Peabody,” Mendoz said.

The Jacks are currently in the process of hiring a new full-time head coach.
