Te Slaa Signs With SDSU Basketball

Brookings, South Dakota — South Dakota State men’s basketball head coach Eric Henderson announced the addition of three newcomers on National Signing Day.

Tanner Te Slaa and William Kyle III each signed national letters of intent. Jack Hastreiter was accepted for admission to South Dakota State and will enroll to join the squad next fall.

“All three of these young men share the same character traits that have made Jackrabbit basketball successful for a long period of time,” Henderson said. “We cannot wait for them to wear the Yellow and Blue!”

Tanner Te Slaa (6-5, 175, Guard – Hull, Iowa, Boyden-Hull High School)
Tanner Te Slaa, a 2020 and 2021 first-team All-State selection, joins the Jackrabbits from Hull, Iowa where he helped lead Boyden-Hull to a 2020 state title and runner-up finishes in 2019 and 2021. The 6-5 guard was named to the Iowa High School State Basketball All-Tournament team in 2020 and 2021, as well as the first team All-Northwest Iowa Review in both seasons.

Te Slaa was named the 2021 Sportswriter Player of the year after he averaged 21.5 points, 7.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game during his junior season.

Henderson on Te Slaa: “Tanner is a winner. His athleticism and innate ability to make everyone around him better is special. He can impact the game in so many ways whether it be scoring, making a great pass or getting a big defensive stop.”
