Spring Hill College Men's Basketball Head Coach Robert Thompson today announced that Najgee Gatson of Our Lady of Mercy Catholic High School in Fairburn, Ga., has signed to play for the Badgers.
Gatson, a 6'6", 215 lbs. small forward, averaged 18 points, 11 rebounds, two blocks and three assists per game as a senior. He also proved himself to be a multi-skilled player with 13 "double-double" games.
During the 2009-10 season, he was selected as a Mike Fitzpatrick Player of the Month and was also named to the All-Region team.
As a senior, Gatson tallied the second most points scored in a season at Our Lady of Mercy while leading the Bobcats to their fourth consecutive winning season and to their second consecutive State Playoff berth.
"Najgee is a quality young man that will have a tremendous impact on our basketball program and community," said Thompson. "He has a surreal potential to be an outstanding basketball player. We look forward having him join the Badger Family."
