HOUGHTON, Mich. – The Michigan Tech men’s basketball team signed a pair of players, Nicholas Stoll and Michael Fisher, to National Letters of Intent recently. Both players will join the team for the 2012-13 season.
“I am really excited about both players,” said head coach Kevin Luke. “Both of these young men are great students and will have outstanding academic careers at Michigan Tech.”
Nicholas Stoll is a versatile player with great size who can beat players off the dribble or in the post. The 6-7 forward averaged nine points, 11 rebounds and three blocks per game as a junior at Holly (Mich.) High School. Stoll, who carries a 3.93 grade point average, helped the Broncos to a 32-12 overall record and a 27-7 mark in the Metro League.
“Nicholas is a very impressive player,” said Luke. “We hope to look to him to score a lot of points for us in the future.”
Michael Fisher is a 6-7 post player who earned all-conference honorable mention honors at Green Bay East after averaging 7.9 points, 7.8 rebounds and 4.3 blocks his junior season. He is a three-time state qualifier in the high jump and won the state title last season with a leap of 6-8. He comes from an athletic family with each of his three older siblings each competing at the collegiate level. His brother Matt was an all-American high jumper at Minnesota and his brother Tom was a national qualifier in the high jump at UW-Whitewater. His older sister Laura competed in basketball and volleyball at Northland College.
“Michael is a big guy that is mobile, tough and gritty,” said Luke. “He fits the mold of a Michigan Tech big man.”
