The Michigan Tech Men's Basketball Head Coach Kevin Luke announced the addition of three players to the program for the 2017-18 season. Dawson Bilski (Powers), Trent Bell (Negaunee) and Kyle Clow (Germantown, Wis.) have all signed National Letters of Intent to join the Huskies next season.
"We signed another great class for Michigan Tech both academically and athletically," Coach Luke said. "All three players are excellent students and great basketball players who will make a big impact on our program. All three of these players come from winning programs. They know how to win, they know what it takes to win, they have been coached and they can handle the academics here at Tech. I'm really excited about this recruiting class."
Bilski, a 6'2 guard, from Powers-North Central High School where he helped lead the team to two state championships. He is averaging 15 points and five assists each time he takes the floor. Bilski has garnered numerous accolades, including UPSSA Class D 1st Team Honors, 3rd Team All-State, and 1stTeam All-Skyline Conference as both a sophomore and a junior.
"Dawson is another one of the great shooters that we have recruited here," Luke said. "He can really shoot the ball well from three-point land and is an excellent athlete. He is going to be counted on to be one of those guys that comes in and shoots the three with regularity."
Bell, a 6'7 forward, is at Negaunee High School and currently averages 12 points and nine rebounds per game. Bell has been a second team All-ABC Team selection and earned a spot on the All-Mid-Peninsula Conference second team.
"Trent is an excellent prospect because he can play both inside and outside," Luke said. "He is very versatile, a good athlete, can shoot the three, he is effective inside, and can help us a lot with what we do with mismatches."
Clow, a 6'4 forward, attends Germantown High School where he is averaging eight points per game. Germantown has won seven straight North Shore Conference titles and Clow has been a major contributor in helping the streak to continue. He was named Honorable Mention All-North Shore and has played with the highly successful Wisconsin Swing AAU program.
"Kyle is a great athlete and solid perimeter player that can score, can penetrate, can defend one through four on the court, and is very versatile defensively," Luke said.
