Northwestern picked up a commitment on Monday from four-star power forward Aaron Falzon, per 247's Luke Srodulski. Falzon, a native of Massachusetts, had visited NU over the previous weekend and picked the Wildcats over Harvard and a number of other offers.

According to the 247 composite ratings, Falzon is the 33rd-ranked power forward in the country and the 117th-best player overall in the class of 2015. And according to Wildcat Digest's Luke Srodulski, he got a grand tour of campus that included the football team's upset of Wisconsin and a lot more.
- Falzon arrived on Friday and was shown around campus as well as the basketball facilities, both of which are larger than his other favorite, Harvard.
- He and his family met with both athletic director Jim Phillips and university president Morty Schapiro, who (obviously) had great things to say about the school and the basketball program, as well as good things to say about Aaron.
At 6-foot-8, 208 pounds, Falzon will give the Wildcats a frontcourt presence that they desperately need. While Chris Collins has done a good job building up his team with guards and wings, NU has struggled to recruit power forwards.
Now, the Wildcats will have two power forwards in the 2015 class, with Falzon joining 6-foot-7 Dererk Pardon, a three-star from Cleveland. Also in the 2015 recruiting class is Jordan Ash, a three-star point guard from Chicago. NU's class now ranks 33rd nationally, according to the 247 composite rankings.
