Ryan is the nephew of former University of Missouri All-American and Indiana Pacer center Steve Stipanovich. 

Steve made national news in 1980 against ORU at the Mabee Center in his first game back from his infamous shooting accident, when "he accidentally discharged a loaded firearm, hitting himself in the shoulder. He initially told police that a masked intruder, wearing cowboy boots and a flannel shirt broke into his apartment on Sunrise Drive in Columbia, Missouri, and shot him while screaming obscenities about basketball players. The next day, Stipanovich recanted the story and admitted that he shot himself by accident." (Wikipedia)

National media pointed out that he could not have picked a less-hostile road environment than ORU for his return to action, and they were right:  as I recall, he went for about 25-and-10 that night, despite a big bandage on his upper arm.

Quick search says he is 6'8"/220 from Missouri.  It would be nice to have another "big".

You are right, his hometown is listed as Raytown, Mo. and his school is Sunrise Christian Academy.  He is listed as a power forward.

Wow! That's quite a range of schools.....If SMU and Wichita St are interested he  seems like he'd be a good get.

Raytown, MO is also the hometown of DoMo.

Perhaps DoMo could put in a word?  I agree that it is a nice list of teams interested in him.
