Its official. After weeks of hearing his name out there, UCSB has landed another key transfer. This one is named Keegan Hornbuckle who played his freshman season at Colorado.
Keegan will be able to play in the 2011-2012 season and will have three years of eligibility after that. Just a few weeks ago, UCSB landed Nate Garth from New Mexico.
Hornbuckle is an athletic 6'7'' power forward with a good outside shot. Coach Williams says Hornbuckle reminds him of the great Chris Devine. Not bad company!
Hornbuckle attended Campbell Hall High School in North Hollywood.
"On my visit, I thought that I really fit in well with the players and that the coaches did a good job of explaining to me what my role would be," he said. He also said he wanted to be closer to home and that he wanted to see his brother Matt play who will be going to Westmont in Montecito.
