DePaul announced the signing of Western Kentucky graduate transfer Chris Harrison-Docks on Monday. Harrison-Docks will have one year of eligibility and can play the 2016-17 season.

The 6-foot guard averaged 10 points last season and shot 38 percent from beyond the arc.

“We are excited to add Chris Harrison-Docks to our program for next season,” coach Dave Leitao said. “Chris is a proven player in college basketball and he can play either guard spot for us. In addition to the experience he adds to our roster, Chris is an outstanding shooter and intense competitor.”

Harrison-Docks left Western Kentucky in January, playing 74 games for the Hilltoppers after transferring from Butler as a freshman. He had served a two-game suspension in December 2015 and was cited on a marijuana possession charge in March 2015.

Harrison-Docks was the 2014 Sun Belt Freshman of the Year, averaging 9.8 points and 2.2 assists while shooting 36.2 percent from deep. He originally announced his commitment to DePaul in February.

DePaul finished 9-22 last season and 3-15 in the Big East. The Blue Demons return a pair of backcourt starters in Billy Garrett Jr. and Eli Cain.
