Panthers add tall timber

South Adelaide are pleased to announce the signing ruckman Michael Knoll.

Knoll, who weighs in at 205cm and 100kg, joins the Panthers after spending two years with the Box Hill Hawks in the VFL.

Prior to his time at Box Hill, the 25-year-old spent four years playing collegiate basketball with St Ambrose University in Iowa.

"After Keegan was drafted by West Coast there was a key need to bring in some tall timber into our squad," said senior coach Jarrad Wright.

"Michael has great size and is an exceptional athlete for someone his height. He moves really well around the ground and has a great leap at the footy. 

"Coming from a basketball background he is still developing his craft, but we see great potential in his game in giving our midfield first use of the ball and taking some good catches around the ground."

Join us in welcoming Michael and his wife Tiffany to South Adelaide!
