Alabama lands St. Bonaventure transfer Dominick Welch

Shooting guard Dominick Welch transferred from St. Bonaventure to Alabama, the Crimson Tide program announced Monday.

Welch played four seasons with the Bonnies and will use his extra year of NCAA eligibility in Tuscaloosa. He has career averages of 10.9 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game in 110 career games (105 starts).

In his senior campaign last season, Welch started all 33 games and averaged 37.5 minutes per game. He was St. Bonaventure’s fourth-leading scorer (12.3 ppg) and second-leading rebounder (6.0 rpg) while making 2.8 3-pointers per game at a 37.4 percent clip.

“We are excited to have Dom join our program,” Alabama coach Nate Oats said in a statement. “He is a versatile wing who has experience and can really score the ball. He was one of the top shooters in the A-10 leading the league in threes made per game last year, so we expect him to thrive in our system.”

Welch is a native of Buffalo, N.Y., and Oats coached at Buffalo for four years before Alabama hired him to the same position.

Alabama, which won the SEC regular-season and tournament titles and reached the Sweet 16 in 2021 before making a first-round NCAA Tournament exit last year, also signed Ohio transfer guard Mark Sears in April.

Welch is the second St. Bonaventure product to find a home in the SEC in recent weeks. Kyle Lofton, also a guard, transferred to Florida earlier this month.
