Tuscaloosa, AL (Sports Network) - Just two weeks after losing one of their primary scorers from this past season, the Alabama Crimson Tide added Michael Kessens, formerly of Longwood, via transfer.

Kessens enjoyed a strong freshman season with the Lancers as he averaged 13.7 points and 8.8 rebounds per game. The 6-foot-9 forward also posted 11 double- doubles and shot 54 percent from the field en route to being named to the Big South All-Freshman Team.

"We are very excited to have Michael join our program here at the University of Alabama," Grant said. "Michael brings a high skill level and strong basketball IQ to his position. He has a passion for the game and has had the opportunity to learn the college game over the last year. Michael will be an outstanding addition to the our basketball team and the university community."

The addition of Kessens adds some depth for the Crimson Tide who released Trevor Lacey (11.3 ppg, 3.2 apg) at the end of April. The Crimson Tide also signed Tulane transfer Ricky Tarrant earlier this offseason.
