The University of Michigan's Spike Albrecht, a 5-foot-11 guard, is headed upstate this weekend to meet with coaches and tour the facilities at Syracuse, according to CuseNation.com.
Albrecht saw action in only eight games this season, all before January, after undergoing bilateral hip surgery last summer. In his junior year, he averaged 7.5 points per game. He has the combined skills of a point guard and shooting guard as a good ball handler and outside shooter. Albrecht also has the vision to create plays on the court. The Orange are in need of a guard, particularly in the case that Malachi Richardson leaves for the NBA for good, which is very likely considering his current rise on daily draft boards. After missing out on Columbia's Grant Mullins, Albrecht could certainly be that guy.
Syracuse will also be visited by Colorado State's John Gillon this weekend, meaning SU is really pushing for at least one grad transfer at guard next season.
Here are the highlights from Syracuse's match-up with the Wolverines in December of 2014 where Albrecht scored a clutch trey to win the game:
