Sacramento State Signs Nick Hornby

Sacramento State has their second signee of the recruiting season, inking 6'5'' wing man Nick Hornby. Hornby is a freshman who averaged 12.0 PPG, 7.8 RPG, and 3.2 APG, showcasing a good variety of skills.

From, a nice quote from Brian Katz:

“Nick can play three spots on the perimeter,” Katz said. “He gives us some size. He won’t have the experience that Joe has had, but he’s far more skilled than Joe.”
Hornby can play all three perimeter positions, and that versatility is something that Katz has really emphasized in recruiting with guys like Joe Eberhard and Cody Demps over the past couple of years.

Also from Sac State Sports:

Hornsby, who is from Tustin High School in Irvine, Calif., was named by ESPN as the 20th best high school recruit in California and ranked the sixth best small forward on the West Coast by
The Hornets are losing a lot of frontcourt talent after this season, with their three best frontcourt players graduating. However, with Eric Stuteville and now Nick Hornby, they are showing definitely that they will be able to build on the success they are having this year. As they have traditionally been near the bottom of the Big Sky, that is great news for the conference.

Hornby reportedly had offers from UC-Riverside and Portland State as well.
