Oregon State athletics and Wayne Tinkle announced that Alfred Hollins, a 6-foot-5, 185 pound forward has signed his National Letter of Intent to play for the Beavers next season. The four-star prospect is originally from the San Francisco area, but has played his senior year at Hillcrest Prep School in Phoenix, Arizona, where he helped lead them to a national championship.
“We are very excited about the prospects of Alfred Hollins," head coach Wayne Tinkle said. "He brings a great motor and is really going to add to our level of toughness and athleticism. But he’s more than that. He has a great skill level and can shoot and score from the outside and is a crafty finisher at the rim and above the rim.
“We love that we are adding a guy who sticks his nose in it defensively and will do the dirty work. He’s a high-level athlete who can play multiple positions offensively and guard multiple positions on the defensive end.”
Hollins joins 4-star guard Ethan Thompson from Los Angeles, California and Zach Reichle, a guard from Wilsonville, Oregon in the 2017 class.
