Orser on Hager
"Will was a fall signee and had just a monster year. He is the glue guy to all these great recruits because he is a true, big point guard who can get guys shots. With Will's leadership, and winning ways, the sky is the limit for Mines basketball. Will's high school team went 33-2, and lost to the eventual state champion by 3 in Rupp Arena. Kentucky has only one classification and has a blind draw to the state tourney. He is a great recruit for the future of Mines basketball and someone we can continue to build our program around."
