FROM BOB GIBBONS
Noted recruiting expert Bob Gibbons selected Ruslan as one of his five "sleeper" recruits after the fall signing period. Gibbons took note of Pateev at the 2007 City of Palms Classic in Florida and at the 2008 NBPA Top 100 camp, where Gibbons noted he "arguably had the best hands and most accurate shooting touch of any big man."

SAYS COACH SENDEK
"Ruslan brings great size and an outstanding skill set. He is efficient around the basket and can knock down jumpers and will add toughness and a defensive presence to the floor. We are very excited to have him as part of our program."
