Michigan grad transfer Spike Albrecht lists Syracuse as possible 5th-year destination

Michigan grad transfer guard Spike Albrecht is showing interest in Syracuse.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- According to ESPN's Jeff Goodman, former Michigan guard Spike Albrecht has named Syracuse as a possible destination for his 5th year of eligibility. Goodman also mentioned Wichita State, Purdue, Indiana, Texas A&M, USC and Milwaukee. 

Albrecht is a 5-foot-11 point guard from Crown Point, Indiana, according to the University of Michigan's athletic website. He attended high school in Massachusetts. 

Albrecht played in 115 games at UM, and was named a team captain in 2014. Orange fans may remember him from 2013 when his Wolverines knocked out 4th-seeded Syracuse, 61-56, in Atlanta. Spike finished with six points that night on 2-of-2 shooting from 3-point range. 

His best season came in 2014-15, where he averaged 7.5 points, 3.9 assists and shot 36.5 percent from 3-point range. 

It's safe to say Syracuse has mutual interest in Albrecht, who will likely visit SU soon.

These two are the only publicly known grad transfers to have interest in Syracuse as of right now.
