Coach Scott Morrison of the men's basketball team is pleased to announce the commitment of Michael Poirier, of Mississauga, Ontario. 

The freshman 6'5" wing player arrives via Kiski prep (Pennsylvania) as well as Elev8 Sports Institute (Florida).

Says Poirier, "I'm very excited to be a part of one of the strongest CIS basketball programs in the country, and I'm looking forward to playing in front of the most energetic crowd in the nation. I'm proud to finally be a member of the Thunderwolves family."

Poirier has also spent time on the AAU circuit with Grassroots Canada (Amateur Athletic Union).

Coach Morrison's effort to return his Thunderwolves to prominence in the OUA takes another step forward with the addition of Poirier. As Morrison states, "We're excited about Mike's potential as a big wing and outside shooting threat. He has some excellent players to develop alongside in practice and we hope he will emerge as a solid long term player for our program."
