A middle blocker, McGeough has twice represented his province as a member of Team Saskatchewan and is excited to be able to continue his education and volleyball career at the University of Saskatchewan.

"I chose the University of Saskatchewan because it has a strong reputation in both academics and athletics," said McGeough. "I am excited to be a Huskie and look forward to working with coach Bennett to develop as a player and contribute to the team."

Standing at 6’9”, McGeough has starred at a number of different levels throughout his young career, playing for the Estevan Comprehensive School Elecs in high school, the Southeast Giants for club volleyball and was also a member of both the U-17 and U-18 Saskatchewan provincial teams.

The announcement is the first signing of a high school product in Bennett's tenure as head coach of the Huskies.
