This past Monday, Northfield Mount Hermon senior Aaron Falzon made his college decision. In a decision that ultimately came down to Harvard and Northwestern, the 6’7 forward chose the purple and the Big Ten over Harvard’s Crimson. Falzon will now join a Northwestern recruiting class that already includes Chicago native Jordan Nash (Saint Joseph High School) and Derek Pardon (Villa Angela-St. Joseph ’15).

Rated by ESPN.com as the 91st ranked player in the Class of 2015, Falzon plays the game as a stretch four. His biggest strength is his shooting ability. The Wildcat bound senior has “in the gym” range and a smooth stroke, which he credits to the countless hours he spent as a kid shooting with his father. He is also a solid passer and likes to get his teammates involved when defenses focus in on shutting him down.

Falzon played his AAU ball with Expressions Elite, a Massachusetts based program that has a history of sending players to Division 1 schools. We got to see Aaron and his Expressions team play in multiple Jam Fests this summer. In fact, he played a key role in Expressions’ road to the Summer Jam Fest Championship.

Good luck to Aaron as he gets set to begin his final season at Northfield Mount Hermon and as he goes to continue his playing career at Northwestern.
