University of Northern Iowa head men’s basketball coach Ben Jacobson announced the signing today of Wyatt Lohaus (North Liberty, Iowa/Iowa City West HS) to a National Letter-of-Intent to play for the Panthers.

“Our program is thrilled to add Wyatt today,” Jacobson said. “He has proven himself to be a tremendous leader and teammate. Wyatt's work ethic and competitiveness are terrific and have allowed him to improve his game every year. He comes from a quality high school program that has had great success. All of these things make Wyatt a perfect fit.”

Lohaus (6’2”, 185 lbs., Guard) has helped lead Iowa City West High School to two consecutive Class 4A state championships and back-to-back undefeated seasons (52-0). Lohaus earned a spot on the 2013 state tournament all-tournament squad. Lohaus was a first-team all-state pick as a junior and was a second-team all-state pick as a sophomore. Lohaus is a two-time first-team all-conference honoree.

Lohaus has scored 763 career points heading into his senior season. He scored 103 points as a freshman, 305 points as a sophomore and 355 points as a junior.

He shot 51.8 percent from the field and 40.7 percent from the 3-point arc as a junior. Lohaus averaged 13.7 points, 5.0 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 1.9 steals per game last season.

He is the son of Anne Lohaus and Brad Lohaus.

City High player Hailey Lorenzen signed to play with Florida today, and Washington's Danni Franklin also signed with Valparaiso.
