Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (UTC) -- Chattanooga Mocs Head Basketball Coach John Shulman announced the signing of Christian Kennedy Wednesday afternoon. Kennedy is a 6'10" post player from Warner Robins, Ga.

Kennedy is a long and lean athlete who fits well with the way the Mocs play.

"Christian Kennedy is long and athletic," Shulman stated. "He is a defensive force in the middle. He can rebound, block shots and run the floor. He has huge potential to be a really good player in our league.

"He comes from a great family, a military family," Shulman added. "We are really happy that they are joining our family."

Kennedy is a rising senior at Northside High School playing for Kenneth Price. He played AAU for Gerald Ogletree and the Columbus Knicks.

He is the 15th-ranked prospect in Georgia according to 247sports.com. That same website has him listed as a top 60 power forward nationally and he received three of a possible five stars.

Kennedy chose UTC over Jacksonville after an early offer from Auburn, He will help fill the void left when senior Drazen Zlovaric (Novi Sad, Serbia) completes eligibility after the 2012-13 season.

The Mocs are on the road facing No. 7 Kansas on Thursday. The game is available on ESPN3.com.
