ARLINGTON, Texas -- The UTA men's basketball program significantly enhanced its inside presence this season with the addition of 7-foot graduate transfer Johnny Hamilton.

A native of Rio Claro, Trinidad, Hamilton earned a bachelor's degree in sociology with a major in criminology in August from Virginia Tech, where he played just three games as a senior after suffering a thumb injury. He began his college career at Jacksonville (Texas) College, where he was among the national leaders in blocked shots. He has one season of eligibility remaining as a graduate student at UTA pursuing a master's degree in criminology and criminal justice.

"Johnny is an extremely athletic big man who has a chance to be among the elite centers in the Sun Belt Conference," said UTA head coach Scott Cross. "At 7-feet, he obviously has tremendous height and length. But, more importantly, he has good skills at both ends of the floor, great timing and will be an elite defender for us. He is mature, experienced and gives us the flexibility and depth to be very aggressive on the defensive end of the floor. We are very, very excited to have Johnny in our program and I cannot wait to start coaching him here at UT Arlington."

Hamilton, who only began playing basketball at the age of 16, started his college career under head coach Jody Bailey at Jacksonville. As a sophomore in 2014-15, he averaged 9.0 points and 8.9 rebounds and shot 61.7 percent from the field. He averaged 4.3 blocked shots per game and registered four or more blocks 16 times.
