The Providence Friars have made a splash in the transfer market.
North Florida Ospreys forward Noah Horchler is heading to Friartown. Jeff Goodman of Stadium reported the news on Tuesday that Horchler, a 6-foot-8, 210-pound forward who’s played two years at UNF, will be joining the Friars. Horchler will sit out the 2019-20 season but will play in 2020-21.
Providence has landed Noah Horchler - 6-8 transfer from North Florida, he told @Stadium. Sit one, one to play. 16.0 ppg, 9.3 rpg— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanHoops) April 23, 2019
Coach: “Super-skilled post. Makes plays off pick and pop or slipping screens. Jump hook in the post, can step out and make 3’s, good on the glass.”
Horchler averaged double figures in the two years he played with the Ospreys. He averaged 11.7 points per game in his first season, and 16 points per game this past year. He also showcased an ability to pull down rebounds, averaging 9.0 rebounds over the course of that two-year span, 9.3 this past season.
When he joins the fray he’ll be playing alongside the likes of Nate Watson, Jimmy Nichols Jr. and Kris Monroe, among others. He should fit in very nicely with the Friars and give them a scoring punch that should help them continue to compete at a high level in the Big East Conference.
