Snow College men's basketball coach Rob Nielson has announced that Mason Rich, a 2013 graduate of Bonneville High School, has verbally committed to play for the Badgers.
Rich will be leaving in July for a two-year LDS Church mission to Peru, and has committed to join the Badgers in the fall of 2015.
"I'm stoked," said Rich, "Going on a mission and then coming back to play for Snow feels right. I like the coaches at Snow and think it will be a really good fit."
In his senior season at Bonneville, Rich averaged 14.2 points and 9.5 rebounds per game.
"Mason is a very athletic young man," said Bonneville coach Jason Finder.
The Bonneville forward was named to the Standard Examiner All-Area first team this year. According Finder, Rich carried a 3.8 GPA throughout high school.

This past season, Snow finished with an overall record of 22-10, finishing third in the SWAC, and was ranked as high as No. 20 nationally in the NJCAA poll.
