Jim Hayford on Jörg: “This year we will redshirt Fredrick Jörg. Fred has outstanding potential, and is committed to being the very best he can be. By redshirting him, it adds a year between Martin and him. That will be very helpful to our program, and to Fred his junior and senior years in terms of playing opportunity.”

2013-14: Is expected to redshirt.

High School: Graduated from Gymnasium Eversten in 2012. Along with Eastern teammate Thomas Reuter, Jörg attended tryouts for the U-20 Germany squad in December 2010. Jörg played in one game for EWE Baskets Oldenburg in the Basketball Bundesliga League (BBL), the highest level league of professional club basketball in Germany. Previously, he played for Akademie Weser-Ems in the U-19 Nachwuchs Basketball Bundesliga League (NBBL), averaging 14.7 points, 10.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocked shots per game. He ranked second in the league in blocked shots, seventh in rebounding and fourth in double-doubles with seven (in 12 games). He made 59.0 percent of his shots from the field and also averaged 2.0 assists per game. His single game high for rebounds was 25.

Personal: He was born on Aug. 11, 1992, in Saarbrücken, Germany. Major is undeclared, but he is considering business administration. His parents are Hermann and Martina Jörg. His fellow Germans Thomas Reuter and Martin Seiferth are also in the Eastern program. At 7-1, he is the tallest player in Eastern history. Eastern has had several 6-11 players in its history as a NCAA Division I member (since 1983-84), with the most recent being Jeremy McCulloch (2002-05). The only former Eagle taller than that is 7-foot Uli Sledtz from Gelsenkirchen, West Germany. Sledtz transferred from the University of Washington and played for Eastern in the 1978-79 and 1979-80 seasons. Frederik’s shoe size was 10 when he was nine  years old, and he now wears an 18.
