Alex Schrempf to UCLA as walk-on UPDATED

Interesting note in the Connecticut Post today that Bellevue High’s Alex Schrempf, the son of Husky legend Detlef Schrempf, is walking on at UCLA.
Here’s the story noting Schrempf had been considering a scholarship at Sacred Heart in Fairfield, Ct., before deciding to go to UCLA, instead.
He was named to the honorable mention All-State Class AAA team this year.
UPDATE — I talked with Bellevue coach Chris O’Connor who said that Schrempf had an offer to walk-on at UW but simply preferred UCLA after taking a visit to Westwood.
“He talked to their coaches and he just loved the campus and the idea of playing for UCLA and the chance to chase that dream,” O’Connor said.
O’Connor said Schrempf also had scholarship offers from Sacred Heart and Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo, where former Seattle U. coach Joe Callero is now coaching, but decided to take the chance with UCLA.
