Klekas was named as the 3A North Division League MVP during both his junior and senior seasons. He also received 1st team All-State recognition both years.
The multi-talented guard averaged nearly 23 points per game over his last two high school seasons, while averaging nearly 4 assists during the same span. He hit 187 three-point shots during those two years and hit them at nearly a 44% clip. His team finished 25-3 during his senior campaign.
UCC Men’s Basketball Coach Daniel Leeworthy had this to say about the addition of Klekas,” Eric is the son of a coach and has a very good basketball IQ. He knows and feels the game really well. He reminds me of Jimmer Fredette in the way he can create his own shot and shoot it from deep. He will fit in well with our high octane offense on the wing.”
