The Pilots rack up another commitment for next season. Philipp Hartwich is a 7-ft Center from Cologne, Germany. From the little info out there on him, he looks like a back to the basket kind of guy (sorry he's not Dirk). And it also looks like he needs to hit some weights and pound some burgers at the Cove.
The guy must be athletic, since he was on the Germany National Youth Handball team! Then again, he's 7-feet tall so he was probably the Goalie.
Bonus fact: strong resemblance to Jim Parsons from The Big Bang Theory:
