Men’s Basketball: Northwestern nabs power forward Aaron Falzon, a top 2015 target

Jesse Kramer, Reporter

Power forward Aaron Falzon has committed to Northwestern, the high school senior tweeted Monday.

Falzon is coach Chris Collins’ third commitment for the recruiting class of 2015, and the Massachusetts product is the biggest so far. He joins three-star guard Jordan Ash and three-star forward Derek Pardon.

Falzon is a consensus four-star recruit. He is ranked No. 91 nationally in ESPN’s recruiting rankings and No. 98 in Rivals.

At 6-7, Falzon has the size of a big man. But he is also known for his outside shooting abilities. ESPN’s evaluation of Falzon says his range extends past the NBA 3-point line. With that skill set, Falzon could pose some mismatches in the Big Ten.

Falzon chose NU over Harvard, according to reports from Medill junior Luke Srodulski of 247 Sports, who first reported Falzon’s commitment Monday.
