PIQUA, OH - Ohio Christian University is pleased to announce the addition of Jalen Hearn (Westerville North HS). Hearn has signed a letter of intent to play basketball at Ohio Christian University (OCU) in Circleville, OH following his successful career at Edison State Community College. 


"We are very excited to add Jalen to our program," said Tony Stockman, Head Men's Basketball Coach at OCU. "He plays hard and with his team. He is very competitive and a hard worker. We are adding a high character guy who can lead both on and off the court."


During his two–year career at Edison State, Hearn was a force on the court earning 17.5 points per game. This spring, Hearn earned All-OCCAC Honorable Mention honors. 


Edison State helped Hearn build a foundation that he will use next season at OCU. "Edison was a major a key in helping me prepare for the next level," said Hearn. "It made me want to achieve success and strive to be better than I was the day before."


"I'm really excited to have the opportunity to play at OCU next year," added Hearn. "They have a good team and coaching staff and I can't wait to get started."


The 5-foot-11-inch guard hopes to continue his success while playing at OCU. "My goals for next year are to win our conference and a national championship. Talking with the coaches they believe that I can help get the team to those positions and I am up for the task."


During his time at OCU, Hearn will continue his academic pursuit toward a bachelor's degree in sports management.
