Perkiomen’s Haugh Signs with Gators’ Basketball

PENNSBURG PA – Thomas Haugh (pronounced “howk;” at top), a 6-foot-9 men’s basketball forward from New Oxford PA who currently attends the Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, has committed to attend the University of Florida as a freshman and join the Gators’ basketball team in 2023, the university said Thursday (Nov. 10, 2022).

Florida coach Todd Golden praised Haugh’s ability to “defend multiple positions” and his “great basketball IQ.” As a player Haugh is “selfless, has a great attitude, and values the tradition and history of our program,” Golden added.

GatorSports.com reported Haugh “chose Florida over offers from Georgia Tech, Northwestern, Illinois and Maryland.”
