Spring Hill College Men's Basketball Head Coach Robert Thompson today announced that forward Jake Thelen from Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Ky., has signed to play for the Badgers.
At 6-foot-6 and 220 lbs., Thelen averaged 22 points and nine rebounds per game as a senior and is the fourth leading scorer in the history of the CCHS program.
As Northern Kentucky's Runner-up for "Player of the Year" honors, Thelen participated in the 2011 Kentucky High School East/West All-Star game and was invited to play in both the Kentucky/Indiana and the Kentucky/Ohio All-Star games.
"Jake is the epitome of a true student-athlete and will have an opportunity to compete for a starting position for our basketball program," said Thompson. "We are very excited to have Jake join the Badger family."
