Zach Hinton, a 6-foot-7 forward from East Los Angeles College, has signed a letter of intent to play basketball for Rocky Mountain College beginning next season.

Hinton averaged 13 points and 9.5 rebounds last season in helping East Los Angeles win the Northern Division of the South Coast Conference. It was the Huskies' first conference crown in 42 years.

"Zach, I feel like, is a really important piece to our puzzle," Rocky coach Bill Dreikosen said. "He's an excellent player, very skilled.

"He just has an excellent motor. He runs the floor very well and plays hard. He does a lot of things really well. I like his versatility."

Hinton was a first team all-conference selection in the North for the Huskies, who compiled a 20-9 overall record last season.
