Men's Basketball Signs Drews For 2018-19 Season

The Ashland University men's basketball program announced Tuesday (May 8) that it has signed forward Bryce Drews to the program for the 2018-19 season.

The Hillsdale, Mich. native is a two-time Associated Press first team all-state performer, two-time Lenawee County Athletic Association most valuable player, and a two-time academic first team all-state selection.

"Bryce will be a great addition to our team," said Ashland head coach John Ellenwood. "He is an outstanding student and plans on majoring in business. From a basketball perspective, he has a great feel for the game, has a high basketball IQ, and is versatile."

Drews prepped at Hillsdale High School where he led the Hornets to three league championships and an 80-9 overall record. The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder is a career 47 percent shooter from the field and 75 percent shooter from the free throw line. He averaged 16.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.1 steals in his prep career.

Drews also lettered in football, track and soccer at Hillsdale.

He joins a recruiting class that already includes prep guards Dylan Beaugard and Jordan Burge, prep forward Jake McLoughlin and sophomore transfer forward Derek Koch.

The Eagles went 20-10 last season and advanced to the GLIAC Tournament semifinals for the third straight season.
