TCU Basketball just added their second member to the 2018 class with the commitment of New Zealand big man Angus McWilliam. McWilliam is a 6-foot-10 junior at Middleton Grange School. He was recently selected to play for New Zealand's Under-19 National Team.

Jamie Dixon was just in New Zealand two weeks ago for a coaching clinic at McWilliam's high school so Dixon got some more time to evaluate McWilliam. McWilliam will become the second Kiwi to play for Jamie Dixon, joining Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams, who played for Dixon at Pitt in 2012-13. McWilliam looks to be a very athletic big with good range and ball-handling skills. He can score with either hand and has a solid low-post game thanks to a good baby-hook shot.

Jamie Dixon has has an eye for talent and has done well with his recruiting under the radar guys in the past. Last year Dixon added a relative unknown guard from Indiana by name of Desmond Bane, who went on to start 13 games for the Horned Frogs, including all four NIT games and averaged 7.1 points and 2.9 rebounds per game on the season. McWilliam will give the Horned Frogs a nice one-two punch with him pairing up with 2017 signee Kevin Samuel.
