PurpleWildcats.com learned on Thursday that Northwestern gained an offseason walk-on: 6-foot-7 small forward Nicolas Segura.
The Potomac (Md.) Heights prospect joins NU and its recent history of strong walk-ons. In the 2012-13 season, Reggie Hearn led the Wildcats with 13.4 points per game.
After NU lost four players to transfer, the ‘Cats can use extra effective bodies. Plus, in only his second season at Northwestern, Chris Collins will have seven of his own players on the sideline.
Segura's highlights show a solid passer with good touch around the rim, but of course, fans should expect a project with potential upside.
