Northwestern has added a potential impact player in the post with the commitment of power forward Pete Nance.

The 2018 prospect announced his decision on Twitter:

According to Scout, the 4-star recruit is the No. 77 overall player in his class and No. 18 at his position.

Nance comes from an NBA family as the son of Larry Nance and the younger brother of current Los Angeles Lakers forward Larry Nance Jr. While that's a lot to live up to, his talent makes him a high-upside addition to the Wildcats.

Nance could add weight to his 6'8", 210-pound frame, but he is a skilled player for his size who make things happen on the offensive end. Not only can he hit outside jumpers if left open, he can create looks for himself off the dribble with an impressive mid-range game.

Even without the same level of athleticism as his brother, he could fit perfectly in Northwestern's system as the squad tries to build on its recent success. The program reached the NCAA tournament for the first time in history last season and returns a lot of talent ready to improve upon that result in 2017-18.

With 3-star point guard Jordan Lathon also headed to Evanston, head coach Chris Collins has the makings of a quality class for 2018.
