“Jacob is an elite passing guard who possesses a terrific IQ and feel for the game,” Linder said. “He comes to us after playing with the Canadian National Team and at one of the top high school programs in the country. During his time at Western Reserve Academy he was coached at a high level by Pete Hutchins and Matt Garvey. We are thrilled to welcome Jacob to the Cowboy basketball family.”
He is the second native of Canada to play for the Cowboys with Dave Lodgins playing for the Pokes from 1984-88. Theodosiou represents his country at the National level. He averaged 6.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game at the FIBA U17 World Cup in 2022.
A native of Waterloo, Ontario, Theodosiou played his high school basketball at Western Reserve Academy in Hudson, Ohio. He is a rated as a three-star recruit by 247Sports and the seventh-best recruit in the State of Ohio and is a Top 200 recruit in the nation.
At Western Reserve Academy, the 6-3, 180-pound guard played with current cowboy Oleg Kojenets in high school.
