TWIN FALLS -- The College of Southern Idaho has announced that 6-0 guard Alec Meyerhoeffer will officially play college basketball for the Golden Eagles. Meyerhoeffer grew up and played high school ball in Twin Falls and will look to make an impact in front of his hometown crowd.

I waited a long time to sign so this feels good, Meyerhoeffer said.

In his senior season for the Twin Falls Bruins, Meyerhoeffer led his team to a state championship on the court, as well as winning his fourth state championship on the golf course.

Attending the College of Southern Idaho may just be a tradition for the Meyerhoeffer family. Jerry Meyerhoeffer, Alec's grandpa, is the former president of the College of Southern Idaho.

I just want to thank my parents and grandparents for everything they've done for me. I'm very excited, said Meyerhoeffer.

Alec's success throughout high school both on and off of the court is providing an opportunity of a life time to be a collegiate athlete. Alec earned first team all conference and first team all state honors his junior and senior year for basketball. In both seasons, he averaged 14 points, over 3.5 rebounds a game, and 3 assists. Academically, he also made the honor roll and was a part of the National Honor Society.

Coming off of a 27-5 record, 16-1 at home, the Golden Eagles look to keep the success going this upcoming season with Meyerhoeffer a part of the team.
