Northwestern announced on Monday that they have added a 6-foot-10 transfer from the ACC.

Joey van Zegeren started 27 games for Virginia Tech over the course of the last two seasons, but he was dismissed from the Hokie program back in January.

“We’re really excited to add someone of Joey’s caliber to our program,” Northwestern head coach Chris Collins said. “He brings four years of ACC experience and he’s a veteran guy on the front line who has been very accomplished at a high level. He’ll bring great athleticism, physicality and size, but most importantly experience to our team as we head into next season.”

Van Zegeren averaged 9.8 points and 5.3 boards in 13 games last season.
