"Zach was an important signee for us," Heath said. "He fills a void on our front line losing Ron [Anderson Jr.] and Gus [Gilchrist]. He's a guy that can score inside and out. He's very versatile in his game and has a great motor. We're very excited to add him to our 2012-13 class."
The Texas native averaged a team-best 20.6 points and 8.4 rebounds per game for The Colony HS during his senior season to help lead the Cougars to a 30-6 record. He reached double-figure scoring in all but two games and posted at least 20 points 17 times while also racking up back-to-back 30 point games.
"Zach is a very hard worker and a tough kid whose motor runs all the time at a high level," said Assistant Coach Steve Roccaforte. "He's got great energy and is a mismatch because he is a 6-7 forward that can step out and shoot the ball well."
