The Arizona Wildcats have added walk-on Alec Spence to their roster, it was announced Wednesday.
Spence is a 6-foot-6 freshman guard from St. Louis, Missouri. He attended Mary Institute and Saint Louis Country Day School where he averaged 19.2 points, 9.8 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game while earning Metro League Player of the Year honors as a senior.
As a junior, Spence helped guide the Rams to a 19-9 record and a third consecutive district title game appearance. Spence originally signed to play at Rice, but was released from his National Letter of Intent for an undisclosed reason.
Spence will wear No. 50, last worn by Tyler Trillo and the legendary Jacob Hazzard.
