Polakovich finished 6th in points and 2nd in rebounds on the all-time ranks at Grand Rapids Catholic Central.
He also lead the Cougars to 24 wins and a spot in the class B state championship game.
Polakovich lost his father last fall and honored him today by signing his letter of intent with a carrot pen he was give by his dad.
"One of his favorite bars, the elbow room, he goes there to get a burger every once in awhile" Jacob said about his dad. "One of his buddies there had a pen and they were kind of joking around saying it would be funny to sign with it and he gave it to me and I wasn't thinking much of it, I was like yeah it's a funny joke don't know if I'll do it, but when it happened and I saw the pen moving I kind of realized that it would just be a cool thing to do it kind of reminded me that he is still there watching me sign."
Indianapolis is a division 2 school competing in the Great Lakes Valley Conference, the Greyhounds were 19-9 last season.
