OXFORD — Miami University head men’s basketball coach Jack Owens announced Thursday that Luka Eller (Concord, Ohio/Lake Catholic) will be joining the team for the 2020-21 season.
Eller is a 6-7 forward who was a four-year starter for Lake Catholic High School in Mentor, Ohio. He was a four-year starter and holds records for most points scored in a single season (576) and in a career (2001). He also holds the school record with 1003 career rebounds.
Eller was named First-Team Ohio in 2019 and 2020 and earned Second-Team honors in 2018. He led his team to conference championships in each of his final two seasons and a district championship in 2017.
“We are excited to add someone with the skill and size of Luka Eller,” said Owens. “It is also important that he has been a part of winning at both the high school and AAU levels.”
Eller joins Jackson Ames (Batavia, Ohio/West Clermont) as incoming RedHawks for the 2020-21 season.
