COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio Dominican's men's basketball team has signed Mason High School senior Matt King, who will be joining the program for the 2017-18 season.

We are really excited to welcome Matt and his family to Ohio Dominican Basketball," ODU men's basketball head coach Dan Evans said. "It was clear very early in the process that Matt is the kind of person and The Kings are the type of family that belong with our program. Matt is a talented young man who can play multiple positions offensively with his varied skill set and guard multiple spots defensively with his athleticism and understanding. His commitment to doing what it takes to win on both ends of the floor, in practice or games, out-of-season or in-season have allowed him to have the type of success he has already enjoyed. We know he will bring those same intangibles to ODU Basketball."
