Lourdes University head men's basketball coach Andre Smith has announced that Zach Steinmetz is transferring to the school and will begin playing hoops for the Gray Wolves in the 2013-2014 season.
Steinmetz, a 6-4 forward, attended Bowling Green State University for two years, where he was on the Falcons' football roster in 2011, sitting out the season as a redshirt.
"Zach will bring some toughness and physical tools to our team," Smith stated. "His aggressive attitude and his extreme work ethic will contribute to our style of play. Zach can score on the low block due to his strength and athleticism and will also be counted on for post defense and rebounding."
A native of Toledo, Ohio, Steinmetz played at Saint John's Jesuit High School where he was a team captain in basketball for head coach Ed Heintchel as a senior. In his three years on the varsity roster, the Titans posted a 69-14 record and he was named to the City League's All-Academic Team.
Steinmetz was also a three-year letterwinner in football for Saint John's where he earned First Team All-District and First Team All-City League honors for the Titans.
