West Bloomfield’s Zach Allread Commits to Northwood

12 Oct


West Bloomfield 6’7″ senior Zach Allread was perhaps one of the best forwards in Michigan who received the least amount of attention.  Allread had only three scholarship offers before deciding on committing to the Timberwolves of Northwood University in Midland, Michigan.

How does it feel to commit to Northwood?

It’s an amazing feeling, feels like all of my hard work to get to this point has finally paid off.

What was Northwood’s reaction when they heard you committed?

They were happy and excited I chose Northwood.

You committed shortly after visiting the campus, what was that experience like?

The campus is in a perfect location that my family can come watch me play and they have a great atmosphere there, perfect fit.

How do you see your play style fitting into Northwood’s system? How do they plan to use you?

They have talked a lot about me coming in and playing a stretch 4 for them because I have the ability to shoot 3s but also can get to the basket.

Are there any other commits in the class of 2015? If so, do you know any of them. If not do you know any players already on the roster?

I don’t know if there are any other commits I don’t think there are.  But I didn’t know any players but met a couple on the visit.

What were some other schools looking at you and what was different about Northwood?

I had offers from Malone and Madonna and I was talking to Depauw and had a recent workout with U of D Mercy who showed interest.  Northwood has a great business school and the atmosphere at the school really caught my eye and I loved it.  And obviously the coaches and players were great and they have been successful the last couple years

And what are you expectations for this upcoming season, what role will you have on this team and how good can West Bloomfield be?

Expectations are high, I will be a 3 or a stretch 4 primarily. The goal is to bring back some hardware and no reason we can’t do it. We have goo leadership and talent from Trishton Jackson and Michael King and have a trio of talented sophomores that will play a big role.
