NKU Basketball Adds Forward John Harge

Northern Kentucky men's basketball announced Friday the signing of forward John Harge, the team's second announced signee this week.

Harge will join the program next season.

“John brings much needed size to our program, but what is most exciting is his upside,” said Horn. “We think he is a steal because of his outstanding feel and versatility. He comes from a basketball family and understands what it takes to compete at this level.”

A native of Aurora, Colorado, the 6-foot-8 Harge played last season for Hillcrest Prep, averaging 19.9 points, 7.7 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.8 blocks per game. He converted 48 percent from the floor, including 41 percent from long range. With Harge patrolling the hardwood, Hillcrest Prep posted a 29-7 record.

Harge is the second player to sign with NKU under Horn’s guidance, joining Adham Eleeda, who committed to the Norse earlier this week.

Northern Kentucky is coming off of back-to-back Horizon League regular-season championships, a conference tournament title, and a berth in the 2019 NCAA Championship where the team lost to eventual national runner-up Texas Tech.
