Ryan Perryman (born April 13, 1976) is a retired American expatriate basketball player who spent time playing professionally in Hungary, South Korea, Chile, the Dominican Republic and Argentina. He is best remembered, however, for his collegiate career at the University of Dayton between 1994–95 and 1997–98. Perryman played for the Flyers after attending Oak Park High School in Oak Park, Michigan. During his four-year career, the 6 ft 7 in (2.01 m), 228-pound power forward compiled 1,524 points and 1,156 rebounds. As a senior in 1997–98, Perryman led NCAA Division I in rebounding with a 12.5 per game average. He holds the school records for rebounds in a game (23) and offensive rebounds in a season (166).

Perryman did not get selected in the NBA Draft and spent his first year out of college as a teacher in Michigan before becoming a professional basketball player. He had the most success while playing for Argentino de Junín in Buenos Aires. He led the Argentine league in rebounding every single season he was there and even developed a cult following among the team's fans. He also played briefly in the Continental Basketball Association for the Grand Rapids Hoops during the 1998–99 season, averaging 3 points and 5 rebounds per game in limited action.[1]

Today he is an elementary school textbook representative for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in the Columbus, Ohio region. He is married and has three children.
