What Do We Know About Nate Santos?

BEVERLY HILLS (MI) – Continuing our “FTS” series entitled “What do we know about…” we turn our attention to Nate Santos, the 6’7” 210-pound Chicago native and transfer from Pitt.

Like many of the guys who end up transferring into UD, Santos was originally recruited out of HS by AG, as he was a teammate of R.J. Blakney’s at The Loomis Chaffee School in Connecticut.

Here is his profile on the Dayton Hoops website:


Santos comes from a basketball family:

His father, Joe, his mother Lori, his sisters Sydney and Ashley, and his brother K.J. all played for the Puerto Rican national team at some point in their careers. Mom played Division I ball at Wichita State, Sydney played at Oakland, Ashley played basketball at Louisiana Tech and K.J. was a Missouri Tiger.

A couple of video highlight reels from his days at Loomis Chaffee:



Nate started the first six games his freshman season at Pitt, then saw his PT dwindle. Here is some film of him vs. Vanderbilt:

I think Fansided is wrong when they say Nate won’t be a double-digit scorer. I think he will be and I hope that pub comment is driving him to work even harder on his shots.
