Northwestern Grabs Transfer From Yale

Northwestern rounds out its team for next year with a fifth year transfer big man from the Ivy League

Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sport

Northwestern was in desperate need of some height for next year's team and it looks like they've solved that problem with today's announcement that 6-10 forward/center Jeremiah Kreisberg will be transferring from Yale and will land in Evanston.

Kreisberg has averaged 6.9 points per game, 4.2 rebounds per game, and 1.0 assists per game over his three year career in New Haven. For his career, the big fella has shot .498 from the floor as well. Being a fifth year transfer, Kreisberg is eligible to play right away next year for the Cats. He will back up starting center Alex Olah.

The Berekley, California native has played in international competitions for Israel, including the 2011 U-20 European Championships. This bit of information has at least one prominent Northwestern blogger rather excited about next season.
