Chris Brickhouse Joins Wolfpack Walk-Ons

Rob Leifheit-US PRESSWIRE

He's mighty mighty; just lettin' it all hang out.

Joining #BattleCannon and #freejevoni in the #walkonlife for the Wolfpack this fall is the unfortunately named (for a basketball player anyway) Chris Brickhouse. Like NCAA Champion of Names Staats Battle, Brickhouse is a Broughton kid. But unlike Battle, who hastily hoists garbage-time threes, Brickhouse is more of an interior player. The kid is dangerous around the rim, and you lose track of him at your own peril.

Brickhouse actually drew interest from BCS programs on the gridiron, where the 6-foot-5, 205-pounder was projected to play tight end in college. Duke was after him the hardest, Brickhouse told the Nittany Lions' Den blog in a feature that ran two years ago. Yahoo's recruiting page shows him having offers from Air Force and Army. But recruiting interest waned after Brickhouse suffered a severe knee injury during his junior hoops season.

Patrick Wallace, who joins the Pack after a prep year at the Brewster Academy, will complete the quintet of walk-ons for Mark Gottfried. Wallace, a 6-1 guard, will presumably run the point with #BattleCannon on the wings, Brickhouse at the four, and #freejevoni at the five for the last minute of what I hope will be many Pack blowouts this season (with the Pack on the right end of the scoreboard).

Of the five, the freakishly athletic Jevoni Robinson (#freejevoni) and the sharp-shooting Wallace, who averaged 17 points a game and hit 86 threes in his last season at Myers Park before prepping at Brewster, are the two most likely (though not very likely) to force their way into the Pack's rotation.
