Former Ohio men’s basketball forward Ivo Baltic announced via Twitter on Thursday that he has officially signed a four-year contract to play for KK Cedevita Zagreb in Croatia.

“Well, it's official! I'm heading to Croatia this Sunday to play for Cedivita for a 4 year contract!” Baltic tweeted.

Baltic joins Reggie Keely as the second player from the Ohio class of 2013 to sign with a team overseas. Keely signed with the Dan Helder Kings of the Dutch Basketball League in June.

Baltic helped lead the Bobcats to two Mid-American Conference championships and a regular season title his senior year. He was an integral part of the 2012 Sweet Sixteen team that defeated Michigan and South Florida in the NCAA Tournament.

The 6-foot-9 forward averaged 7.5 points and 4.7 rebounds throughout his four-year career in a Bobcat uniform. He ranks 30th all-time in Ohio history with 1,066 career points and was 2012 All-MAC Honorable Mention selection.
