Zach Reichle will forgo extra season at Oregon State

OSU Beavers

After four seasons in Corvallis, senior Zach Reichle has decided to end his career with the Beavers. 

Due to the pandemic, players were granted an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA. However, rather than come back to OSU for one more run, Reichle decided to start the next chapter of his career. 

The Wilsonville, Oregon native made the announcement on his Twitter account late Friday.

“What a journey it has been. These last four years have truly been the best four years of my life and I wouldn’t trade my time at OSU for the world." Reichle wrote. "I am very blessed to be able to say that Oregon State Basketball has helped me grow as a person in ways that I could never imagine. I will forever be grateful for the opportunities this program has given me on and off the court. " 

"The last month and a half has been extremely tough for me, as I faced the decision as to whether or not I would use my extra year of eligibility. There have been many emotions and tears that have contributed to my decision. Ultimately, in my heart I feel that it is best for me to forgo my final year of eligibility and move on to the next chapter in my life."

I am proud to be ending my collegiate career as a Pac-12 champ and an NCAA Tournament run to the Elite 8. Thank you for everything and Go Beavs!"
