COLLEGE STATION, Texas - The Texas A&M men's basketball program announced Thursday the signing of Tonny Trocha-Morelos, a highly-recruited center and native of Colombia.

"I am excited to add Tonny to our program," Texas A&M head coach Billy Kennedy said. "He will have an immediate impact to our program. He is a skilled big man who affects the game on both ends of the floor."

A long and athletic post, Trocha-Morelos made a good impression over the summer when he played for the Colombian U18 Team at the FIBA Americas in Brazil, averaging 16 points and 10.2 rebounds per contest, both team-highs.

Additionally, Morelos played for Team Latin America at the ADIDAS Nations tournament where he led all players in blocked shots.

The 6-foot-10 center is a highly-prized prospect who received a four-star rating by Rivals.com and was recruited by Arizona, Baylor, Florida, Georgetown, Houston, Kentucky, Ohio State, Oregon, Providence, Texas Tech and UCLA, among others.

Trocha-Morelos joins an already impressive Texas A&M recruiting class that already includes Davonte Fitzgerald (Tucker, Ga.) and Tavario Miller (Houston, Texas).
