I wondered why everyone was using the same picture when writing about newest UofL Basketball signee Matz Stockman, apparently they aren’t easy to find. What I do know is this, he’s the tallest player in school history edging out 7’1 David Shrag (97), 7’0 current DJ Matt Simons (95), & 7’0 Beau Zach Smith (97). Yes Matt Simons is really a DJ but that’s not the point. Don’t really know a ton about Matz, but here is what we do know. The 7’2 238 pound Matz (pronounced Mots), and his Conan O’Brien-esque build, is Norwegian. The only video I have seen of him was this video @CrumsRevenge tweeted out:
He is tall and he can dunk…more things we know. I feel like as a member of CardNation that I should help him feel at home so I will speak a little in his native language.
Velkommen (Welcome)- We welcome Matz to the already loaded 2014 signing class which includes Shaqquan Aaron, Quentin Snider, Jaylen Johnson and Chinanu Onuaku.
hei (hello)- say hello to the tallest front court we have had in quite a while when you add Onuaku to the mix
prosjekt (project)- He likely won’t be a day one contributor and may even Redshirt, but he will be a force to be reckoned with when he leaves the University of Louisville
bilder og video (pictures and video)- We really need more videos and media on this kid so that we can see what this kid is all about. He may be a Hajj Turner hype wise (no offense, can’t get mad) or may be a Dirk…I’m betting he is somewhere in between.
So to Matz we will leave him with, Velkommen til Louisville, de 2013 National Champions…never gets old
