Men’s Basketball: Collins announces two 2015 recruits

Jesse Kramer, Reporter


Northwestern officially has two members in its class of 2015 recruiting class. Forward Aaron Falzon and guard Jordan Ash signed their National Letters of Intent Wednesday, coach Chris Collins announced Wednesday.

Falzon is this class’s headliner as a member of ESPN’s and Rivals’ top-100 recruiting rankings.

He is 6-foot-7-inches tall and is a shooter with deep range. That combination could cause some mismatches when he gets to the collegiate level.

“For us to be able to go to the east coast and get one of the premier shooters in the country is a great get for us,” Collins said Wednesday. “He’s going to fit in tremendously with what we’re trying to do and how we’re trying to play.”

Ash is 6-foot-2-inch guard who can finish strong at the rim. He is a local talent, playing his high school ball at St. Joseph High School in Westchester, Illinois.

“That’s something that’s been important to us, to keep the local talent home,” Collins said. “He brings a great pedigree. He comes in as a winner.”

Cleveland native Dererk Pardon, who gave NU a verbal commitment in June, has yet to sign his NLI.
