Head coach Bill Sall of the Northern Michigan University men's basketball team has announced three signees for the 2014-15, to begin his second recruiting class. Cooper Radtke, Alex Sorenson and Kenny Williams have signed to start their careers at NMU next season.
"The best part about adding these young men to our program is that all of them aren't just very good basketball players, they are all tremendous students, great people, and from amazing families. They will add to our Wildcat Family as much off the court as they will on the court," said Bill Sall of his signees.
Radtke is a forward from Oshkosh North High School (Oshkosh, Wis.). He averaged 18.3 points and 5.8 rebounds per game and was named the Fox Valley Association Player of the Year last season as a junior. Radtke is currently ranked No. 20 by WisSports.net and plays AAU basketball for the Wisconsin PlayGround Warriors. He is also a member of the football team that is playing in the Wisconsin State Championship game.
Sorenson will join the team as a center and power forward. He currently attends Dunlap High School (Dunlap, Ill.), where he averaged 15.4 points and 7.4 rebounds a game in his junior season. Sorenson was named to the first-team All-Mid-Illini last season as a junior. He is ranked No. 19 for his position in the State of Illinois by the City/Suburban Hoops report, ranked in top 10 by ChicagoHoops.com, and is the 73rd overall player in the state.
Williams is also from Illinois, and has played against Sorenson. Williams is a power forward from Bolingbrook High School (Bolingbrook, Ill.) and averaged 12 points and five rebounds per game as a junior at Bolingbrook. He was named All-State Honorable Mention and All-Area Boys Basketball South in his junior campaign. Williams is ranked No. 14 in his position in the State of Illinois by the City/Suburban Hoops report, is also ranked in the top 10 by ChicagoHoops.com and is the 58th overall player in the state.
Sall added that, "all of them had multiple college basketball offers and ultimately decided that Northern Michigan University was the best place to further their academic and athletic careers."
