He was selected by the Washington Bullets in the 1995 NBA draft, but his draft rights were traded along with Rex Chapman to the Miami Heat, for the draft rights to Jeff Webster and Ed Stokes.

Internationally, he played for Bnei Herzliya in Israel, Pallacanestro Cantù, Basket Rimini and Viola Reggio Calabria in Italy, KK Split in Croatia and Telekom Baskets Bonn and RheinEnergie Köln in Germany, amongst others.

In his first year at University of San Diego, Rencher assisted the team in earning a 20-win 2017-2018 season, inclusive of a quarterfinals appearance in the CollegeInsider.com (CIT) Post-Season Tournament.
