Former Virginia Tech big man Joey Van Zegeren, a graduate transfer, has committed to Northwestern, according to a report from ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

Van Zegeren visited Northwestern for the Iowa game, and was one of two candidates for Northwestern's final available scholarship. However, Collins could still add three-star recruit Kipper Nichols (should he choose Northwestern) if somebody from the current roster transfers.

Here's a full profile of van Zegeren, an athletic 6-foot-10 forward from the Netherlands. He was a pretty inefficient offensive player during his two-plus years at Virginia Tech, but was a good rebounder and shot blocker, especially in his sophomore season. There's one really ugly number though: He's a career 37.9 percent free throw shooter.

Here is his 2013-14 shot chart from his sophomore season as a Hokie:

As you can see, he doesn't have much of an offensive game outside of the paint.
