Alex Schrempf Transferred to UW


A few days ago, SeatownSports.net’s editor-in-chief tweeted this:

I followed up with Kevin Cacabelos and found out that in fact, Alex Schrempf has already started classes at UW and is

still unsure if he is going to walk-on.

A former Bellevue stand-out and son of former Sonic great, Detlef Schrempf, Alex has a lot of hype just in his name. Not just because of his father but also for what he was able to do at Bellevue. His bio on the UCLA site says this about his high school career:

"Schrempf garnered first team All-State Tournament honors leading his squad to the semifinals, where Bellevue lost a heartbreaker 52-51 to Columbia River in overtime … he had 16 points and 10 rebounds against Columbia River … he was also named the MVP of the Oregon vs. Washington All-Star game as a senior … he was also named the Co-MVP of Bellevue’s team in 2009 as well as the MVP of the Martin Luther King Holiday Hoopfest … he scored a season-high 28 points in the state tournament opening round victory over Foster … as a senior in 2009, he averaged 15.3 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game … he completed five double-doubles in 2009 including 25 points and a season-high 16 rebounds in a win over Bellarmine Prep."

Schrempf, 6’5 and 220 pounds, did not receive a lot of major offers coming out of High School and decided to walk-on to the UCLA Bruins squad. He was then red-shirted and the following year, as a red-shirt freshman only saw 2 minutes of total action and played in 3 games.

He is now returning to the school that his famous father attended and is planning to finish his college degree. The question remains, will he join Shawn Kemp Jr. on the Huskies basketball squad?
