Micah Rollin, a 6-foot-10, 260-lb. center, has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend Ball State University and compete for the men's basketball program, according to first-year head coach Ronny Thompson.

Rollin, a junior college transfer who was a sophomore at the College of Southern Idaho, was recruited by both Fresno State and Ohio State, before choosing to continue his college basketball career at Ball State. Rollin is a native of Long Beach, Calif.

"I am extremely excited Micah has decided to join our program at Ball State," Thompson said. "Anyone who has the presence he has will be a huge asset to our team and our league. Micah can catch, score and finish. He's only been playing organized basketball for one year, but he has the things you can't teach. I am also excited about his potential, because we can teach and instruct those other areas."

At Southern Idaho last season, where he was slowed by a foot injury in 2004-05, Rollin played in 31 games with three starts for a team which posted a 25-10 overall record and finished first in conference play with a 13-5 mark.

Rollin becomes the first recruit signed to play at Ball State for Ronny Thompson, who was named BSU's head coach April 4.
