Coach Haase on Chris
"Chris is a strong, athletic and versatile big man," Haase described. "He has the ability to score inside and outside and he will fit in very well to our style of play. He comes from a great basketball tradition at Savannah High School under Coach Jordan, and has competed in back-to-back state championships in Georgia. Chris embodies all the characteristics we look for in a player and student and we are thrilled to have him as a part of our program."
