Boilers add transfer Spike Albrecht from Michigan
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Michigan guard Spike Albrecht will transfer to Purdue and join the Boiler program as a graduate student with one year of eligibility remaining.
The Crown Point native announced his decision on Twitter Tuesday morning.
A team captain in 2014-15, Albrecht played in 31 games, starting 18 while averaging 7.5 points per game, including a career-high 18 against rivals Michigan State. His senior season of 2015-16 was cut short, as multiple offseason hip surgeries were not healing as he had hoped, and on December 11, 2015, Albrecht announced his career at Michigan was over.
Albrecht’s decision means Purdue now has a graduate transfer at point guard for the fourth season in a row (Sterling Carter ’13, John Octeus ’14, Johnny Hill ’15). He joins rising junior P.J. Thompson at the point on the Boilers’ roster.
