Former Alabama 4-Star Alex Tchikou transferring to Detroit Mercy

Former Alabama forward Alex Tchikou is transferring from Rhode Island to Detroit Mercy. Tchikou spent last season with the Rams.

Tchikou committed to Alabama out of high school. The France native chose the Crimson Tide over other programs like Arizona, Florida State, and Oregon. He was regarded as a four-star coming out of Dream City Christian High School in Glendale, Arizona.

Prior to the start of his freshman season, Tchikou suffered a ruptured achilles causing him to miss the entire season.

As a reshirt-freshman, Tchikou played in just three games for the Crimson Tide.

Following the season, he entered the transfer portal and committed to Rhode Island. In one season with the Rams, Tchikou averaged 4.1 points per game and 3.5 rebounds per game.

Following his redshirt-sophomore season, he entered the transfer portal yet agin. He will be heading to the Horizon League to play for Detroit Mercy next season. With the Titans losing their all-time leading scorer in Antoine Davis, Tchikou could prove to be a key piece to the puzzle next season.
