Northwestern lands Northfield Mount Hermon power forward Luke Hunger
By ADAM ZAGORIALuke Hunger, the 6-foot-10, 255-pound power forward from Northfield Mount Hermon (MA), has committed to Northwestern.
He also considered Miami, Harvard and Richmond.
“[It’s a] Top 10 school [and I’ll be] playing in the Big 10,” Hunger said. “Can’t get any better than that.”
As for what skillset he will bring, Hunger said: “I will be a versatile big who can stretch the floor as well as play inside, be a high energy guy and also bring toughness.”
Said NMH coach John Carroll: “Luke Hunger works! He has transformed his game over the past year and he’ll bring a heightened level of intensity to the Northwestern program. He and his NMH teammate Rowan Brumbaugh are a terrific tandem that the Wildcats faithful will enjoy watching together for years to come.”
