With Alex Olah being the lone returning front court player in 2014-15, Northwestern is certainly in need of another interior body. And according to a report from Teddy Greenstein of the Chicago Tribune the Wildcats have received a commitment from 6-foot-10 forward Jeremiah Kreisberg, who will be transferring to the Big Ten school from Yale.
After averaging 6.9 points and 4.2 rebounds per game in three seasons Kreisberg missed the entire 2013-14 season after undergoing back surgery. Kreisberg accounted for just 5.6 points and 2.8 rebounds per contest in 2012-13, with the nagging back issue limiting his effectiveness.
How productive will Kreisberg be in the Big Ten? That remains to be seen, but simply put Northwestern needed another front court body. In addition to Olah and Kreisberg Northwestern will have incoming freshman Gavin Skelly, with the majority of their talent being perimeter players.
Guards JerShon Cobb and Tre Demps will be asked to lead the way, with four talented freshman guards including the athletic Vic Law expected to compete for playing time upon their arrival in Evanston.
