Montana Tech head basketball coach Patrick O’Herron announced the signing of 6-foot-7 Billings Skyview forward Nolan McHugh today. Nolan will join the Orediggers in the fall of 2015 as freshman.
“Nolan is another player who comes from a winning program and understands the hard work needed to build a championship team,” O’Herron said. “Nolan is the type of student-athlete we feel will be successful here at Montana Tech academically and athletically. I see a big upside in Nolan and I look forward to watching him reach his full potential.”
This season, McHugh is averaging 11 points and 5 rebounds per contest while shooting 47 percent from the field along with 48 percent from behind the arc. Off the court, Nolan has also maintained a 3.6 grade point average.
“I chose Montana Tech because of the coaches, the program and the school,” McHugh said. “Overall, it’s all just a great fit for me.”
McHugh is the third signee of the Diggers who lost five seniors. O’Herron added Lukas Vining out of Great Falls and Seth Erickson from Salem, Ore. earlier in the season.
McHugh is the son of Brian and Beverly McHugh. He plans on pursuing a degree in geological engineering.
