HUNTINGTON, Ind. - Huntington University men’s basketball has added another sharp shooter to its roster with the signing of Oak Hill High School standout David Arens.

Arens averaged 11 points per game this past winter to go along with grabbing four rebounds per night to help guide the Golden Eagles to an IHSAA State Championship. He drained a team-best 44 threes on the year at a clip of 41 percent.

The 6-7 forward finished his career with 850 points. The two-time CIC Honorable Mention pick was invited to the Hoosier Basketball Magazine Top 60 workout as a senior and was named an IBCA Top 100 Player last year.

“We are excited David has decided to come to HU and be a Forester,” said Coach Ty Platt. “He had a very good career at Oak Hill and played a huge part in helping them to a 2A State Championship this past season.

“David is a threat from the outside, is a good defender and rebounds well. He is a young man full of potential and with hard work, we think he can have a great career for us here at HU.”

The Huntington University Foresters compete in 17 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 38 NAIA All-America honors and 274 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S. News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest.
