LAWRENCE, Kan. - University of Kansas men’s basketball coach Bill Self announced Wednesday that Royce Woolridge has signed a national letter of intent to play at KU next season.
A shooting guard from Sunnyslope High School in Phoenix, Ariz., Woolridge is 6-3, 175-pounds. As a junior at Sunnyslope, Woolridge averaged 28.5 points and 5.3 rebounds per game. He made 50 percent of his field goals, shot 34 percent from behind the arc and 82 percent from the free-throw line. Additionally, Woolridge averaged 2.5 assists and 2.1 steals for the Vikings in 2008-09.
"We are very happy to add Royce to our basketball program," Self said. "He’s a terrific young man, great student and is going to be a heck of a basketball player. Right now he is a combo guard that is really good off the bounce and has become an excellent shooter.
"Royce and his mother, Victoria, have been very loyal to us considering they committed approximately two years ago," Self added.
