CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - University of Central Arkansas coach Russ Pennell has added the final piece to his first recruiting class with the addition of forward/center Albert Christensson.

Christensson, a 6-foot-9, 220-pounder from Lund, Sweden, played last season at South Kent Prep in South Kent, Connecticut.

Pennell took over the UCA program in March. He says Christensson brings size at 6-9, athletic ability and great fundamentals to the team. He says Christensson’s international experience and playing at South Kent Prep puts him ahead of the curve for most freshmen.

The signing of Christensson brings UCA’s total number of newcomers to 12 and the roster total to 13 with returning sophomore Ethan Lee. The addition of Christensson gives UCA four players at 6-8 or taller.
