Cincinnati Christian Senior Kollin Thomas Inks with OCU

CINCINNATI, OH - Cincinnati Christian High School Senior Kollin Thomas has signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Ohio Christian University. Thomas signed his letter in the presence of his parents John and Kim, his brothers Kris and Kyle, and OCU Head Coach Tony Stockman on Thursday.

CCS Head Coach Danny Celenza has the following to say about his departing Senior Player: "Kollin loves to compete and will do whatever he is asked in order to give his team the best chance to win. He is an outstanding young man, with a strong desire to serve God in all he does. He will definitely be missed next season.”

Thomas has been a key player in some of the most successful seasons in Cincinnati Christian history, with several winning seasons. He averaged 7.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game as a Senior in 2011-2012. A starter for the Cougars, he helped lead the team to an overall record of 14-8, 8-5 in the Miami Valley Conference. Cincinnati Christian made it to the Sectional Semi-Finals in the 2012 Ohio High School Athletic Association Division IV State Tournament.

"Kollin is a quality young man that comes from a great family and a great school," said Coach Stockman.  "We expect him to really lead by example on the court and in the classroom.  We see potential in him and we are really looking forward to investing in Kollin and working with him to take his game to the next level over the next four years."

Thomas joins an OCU program that went 27-10 this past season on their way to their first ever Final Four appearance.  The Blazers tip off the season on November 2nd against Indiana University East.
