THUNDER BAY – The Lakehead Thunderwolves men’s basketball team has reached overseas for its latest recruit.
Eric Gonzalez, who spent the past couple of seasons playing for Spain inthe 2017 FIBA U18 European Division A Championship, and later for Gannon University, is a 6-foot-8 wing who coach Ryan Thomson says will fit nicely into the LU lineup.
"Eric gives us a great deal of versatility and size up front,” said head coach Ryan Thomson. “He shoots the ball at a high level, brings some toughness for us as well as an understanding of what it takes to win and compete at a high level."
Gonzalez plans to take engineering in Thunder Bay and is looking forward to settling in to his new home.
Lakehead is a great program to keep growing as a player to reach my ultimate goals. I'm also able to pursue a degree that I'm keenly interested in.”
