The Ottawa University athletic coaches have been busy recently adding to their future rosters with signings.
Here is a list of those athletes:
Bishop Carroll High School senior Logan Bullinger signed to play basketball for the Braves. The 6-foot-6 forward played football and basketball.
He led Carroll to third in the 5A state tourney this past season. He also played on the 2012 undefeated state championship football team.
He averaged 15.2 points and 5.0 rebounds per game as a senior.
“He is an outstanding student and coming out of a very strong basketball program at Bishop Carroll,” Ottawa coach Andy Carrier said. “At 6-6, he will play both forward positions. Logan can shoot the three, face up and drive as well as score the ball inside.”
Bullinger plans to concentrate on general studies before deciding on a major.
Burlington High School senior guard Ryan Redding signed with the Braves basketball team. The guard earned several postseason awards after he averaged 15.3 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists, and 1.2 steals per game.
“Ryan is an athletic guard with a tremendous work ethic,” Carrier said. “He is a very good student and a team player. Ryan will continue his development with our junior varsity.”
Redding plans to major in physical education.

Raymore-Peculiar High School junior Sarah Shatford signed with the softball program. She is the first signee for the 2014-15 school year.
The infielder earned all-district and second team all-state academic honors.
