For the first of three nationally televised UC Davis games, the Aggie men’s basketball team is flying to Utah (1-0) with some very good news in hand.

Ohio prep star Isaiah Walton is headed for Hamilton Court at The Pavilion. Having made a verbal commitment last month, the 6-foot-3 guard signed his National Letter of Intent on Wednesday.

“As a staff, we couldn’t be more excited to have Isaiah join our basketball family,” UCD coach Jim Les said. “He is a very skilled and athletic guard who makes us immediately better. He is an explosive scorer that can make plays for himself as well as others.”

While a junior at Elyria High in Oberlin, Ohio, Walton averaged 17.9 points per game, five rebounds and four assists. His school went 18-6 and Walton was accorded all-league and all-county honors.

Walton’s father Harold played at Kent State, where Aggie assistant Chris Davis coached at the same time.

“My father told me Coach Davis is a good guy and a real straight shooter,” Walton told the UCD athletic department. “What you see is what you get with him … and I liked that.

“UC Davis is ranked No. 8 in the country for its academics. The environment was really positive and the people were really nice and welcoming.”

While the Aggies rejoice about the signing of Walton, who will arrive on campus next fall, there is some concern about All-Big West guard Corey Hawkins’ hand injury.

School officials say it happened in a practice before Monday’s 80-54 win over Holy Names. Hawkins sat out that game, his hand bandaged.

But there has been no official report on Hawkins’ availability.

Utah is coming off a 128-44 beat-down of Evergreen State. Davis is 1-1, having lost earlier at Portland, 100-83.

Notes: Friday’s game will be televised on the Pac-12 Network (7 p.m.), with Jason Knapp and Dan Dickau at the mics. Davis also will be on Pac-12 TV Dec. 14 (at Stanford). Fox Sports Prime Ticket will air the Aggies’ Big West finale from UC Irvine on March 8. …Speaking of  broadcasts, Bill Herenda will fill in for Scott Marsh on the Aggie radio calls from the Portland State Tournament (Nov. 22-24). Marsh will be tied up calling the Causeway Classic football game. Herenda, once the Aggie color man, is now the morning sports guy at KFBK (AM 1530) and just inked a contract to do games for ESPNU. …UCD’s next home game is Nov. 26 against Sacramento State.
