Unless there's a specialty graduate program, the move doesn't seem to make sense academically because it not a week-known school, nor does it give him any exposure for his continuing basketball career. 
The hiking and fishing in the rugged Salmon River area of the state is worth thr trip .

Road trips to Vegas and San Diego.  They have been pretty good the last few years.

Northwestern would have been my choice, but maybe Boise St. felt right for him. Given the pool of schools that were in on him, I'm a bit surprised, but good for him.

What other schools were supposedly in on him?  I have not seen a list anywhere and choosing Boise St. so you can hang out with your buddy who you played with on the german national team seems like a pretty poor decision regardless of whether he stays here or not.

Academically, he'll do well, then he can transfer to a good graduate school after his eligibility runs out.

Thanks for being a Ram, Christian!

I'm guessing he wants to play with his Germany U-23 teammate Christian Jorch, who's at Boise. Good luck to him.

Good Luck and best wishes to CS....but it seems to show exactly how low the Fordham BB program has sunk.  From a New York City University to Boise, Idaho?  C'mon... Wants to play with a fellow German...Really?  That's the reason?.  Don't believe that for an instant. Playing in Idaho rather then New York City is better publicity for a future pro career?  Nope!
Playing home games at Rose Hill before a half empty gym?....an apathetic student body?...an administration that places no priority on
a basketball program?  Perhaps... who really knows..

I think it's more of an indication of how low college basketball has sunk

this conversation becomes circular and low-level, but yes - having a friend/teammate that sells you on the program does matter. You better believe the staff and school sold it hard. I'm sure he'll enjoy his year there. Moreover, it isn't 1975, the Boise St. program is more attractive than Fordham and playing in Idaho is better 'publicity' for his future pro career in Germany. As I said earlier, I'm a bit surprised he didn't take the Northwestern bait, or the California schools, but he'll be just fine at Boise State.

They won 19 games and went to the NIT last year. I think it's a step up.

They will have a chance to make the tournament but if as Peter says he had other schools that could make the tournament this makes no sense.  But it is his choice.  Adios.

Boise State plays in the Mountain West Conference. This is not a step up from the A10. He should be able to compete and possibly even make their All Conference Team.

Not a step up in conference, but Boise State has been Kenpom 96, 90 and 47 the last 3 years (in 2015 they made the NCAAs).  Hate to say that's a step up.  Fordham hasn't made the top 100 in the kenpom era, which goes back to 2002.   

And while not the A-10 the MWC isn't bad.  Only 1 bid this year.  But in 2015 it got 3 bids, and in 2013 it was a 5 bid league, with Colorado St (Kenpom 22), New Mexico (23), San Diego St (31), UNLV (38) and Boise State (54) all making it.  So in last 5 years Boise State has been to 2 NCAAs and an NIT, even though it never won its conference tournament.

agree   MWC was only a shade below A-10 this past season per Sagarin     also, Boise SOS was stronger than ours and home attendance was far superior, several games exceeding 7K    plus, if he has a friend there, not such a strange move    enjoyed watching him play, his effort and wish him well

Agreed but it's a major step as far as programs go. Major. Not even close.

Lets see - he's transferring to a team that just went two games deep into the NITs. For the Broncos last home game there were nearly 6000 fans in attendance.

Why would he go there? You have to ask?

CS played major minutes in every game while he was at FU. He was very personable and friendly. He seemed to give his all every time.  For whatever reasons he had, he wanted to make a change after graduation. Best wishes to him.  And best wishes that the Rams can come up with a suitable replacement, which we know is a big unknown for our always challenged program.
When did the program last get a lucky break?  Even the Cubs and Red Sox have had their day.
