Northern Kentucky University Signs Eric Stenger

The NKU Norse men's basketball team signed Erik Stenger of St. Xavier high school to a scholarship a couple weeks ago. Stenger is a 6'6 forward who put up solid numbers during his senior campaign averaging 17.6 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. Stenger was nominated for numerous awards last season and helped lead St. Xavier to the district championship.

Stenger joins Ethan Faulkner as NKU's lone recruits next season. The Norse will also have redshirt freshmen Corey Sorrell on the squad.

With Scott Bibbins, Dennis Gagai, and Dustin Maguire back next year the Norse will have solid guard play. One thing they'll lack is a presence in the post with only Tanner Jacobs and Brad Hosler as the current bigs.

Stenger will help a little but I'm hoping for A.J. Stewart.......
