Northwestern lands commitment from top 100 forward


Chris Collins landed his third commitment in the Class of 2015, as Aaron Falzon pledged to the program on Monday morning.

Couldn’t be more excited to join the Northwestern family,” Falzon tweeted.

Falzon picked the Wildcats over Harvard. Boston College had also recruited Falzon, who played his high school ball for Northfield Mount Hermon, a prep school in New England.

Falzon is a 6-foot-7 forward that is probably closer to being a four than he is a three, but he also happens to be one of the best shooters in the country. Ranked the No. 98 player in the class by Rivals, Falzon joins Dererk Pardon and Jordan Ash in Northwestern’s class. He was a member of the Expressions Elite AAU program that competed in Nike’s EYBL circuit and produced top 100 Class of 2014 prospects Jared Terrell and Abdul Malik-Abu.
