Listed by both sites at 6-foot-6 and 200 pounds, Lohner has received interest from numerous Power Five programs, as well as major interest from BYU. A native of Flower Mound, Texas, he transferred to Wasatch Academy earlier this year.
According to 247 Sports’ rankings, Lohner becomes the second Top 100 prospect to commit to Utah as part of its 2020 class, joining Ian Martinez, who is the son of recently-hired assistant coach Henry Martinez.
Lohner did not immediately respond to a request seeking additional comment on his decision.
