re: Alabama Basketball: 2016 (and beyond) Recruiting - BigBird09
[quote]Arizona had already offered him so that's basically the biggest offer besides getting a UK or Duke offer [/quote] Both Kansas and Arizona had offered and along with Alabama had been listed as teams prioritizing him when Bossi made his early prediction of Sexton to Alabama. We obviously si...

[quote]The guy I am interested in is Malik Newman. He has also withdrawn from the draft and is possibly looking to transfer[/quote] Sucks, but we'd likely have no shot. Blocking transfers to in-conference teams is a common practice in basketball....

It was Eric Bossi. He called it his "Way too Early Prediction". Wouldn't quite call it a confident guess....

We don't have one for Sexton. I think we have a few for Herb Jones, one for Jamal Johnson (or did), one for Hammonds, and a couple for Brooks. That's it as far as I know....

re: Alabama Basketball: 2016 (and beyond) Recruiting - BigBird09
We received a crystal ball pick for Jaren Jackson, which I found interesting. He's one of the most intriguing guys in the class. At 6'10 most project him as a PF, but he has the handles, coordination, and shot to possibly be a SF at the next level. Huge potential this one. 247 actually projects h...

[quote]Yeah, it's exciting that basketball recruiting is a big topic again. The Grant yrs were boring. It was almost impossible to find any news, cause Grant was an arse and wouldn't talk to anybody.

Giddens would only be a sophomore and AJ jr would be a junior (Sorry for the OCD). I'm interested to see how CAJ handles the Giddens and Hall situation. I think Hall is the better player right now, but after both develop the next year and a half, who knows? If both develop well, I could definitel...

[quote]Not really. He got better at shooting three's and used his athletic build to finish through contact[/quote] Yes, really. Outside of his quick first step and beating people to the rim, Retin didn't have much inside the arc and floaters until his senior year. He also improved his finishing a...

re: Alabama Basketball: 2016 (and beyond) Recruiting - BigBird09
[quote]Retin was already a great athlete. He just had to refine things in his game to hit another level. Coleman would have had to make a very significant jump at his size to really turn in to an awesome player. He largely lacked all of the go to moves required to be awesome at that size. Floaters, ...

re: Alabama Basketball: 2016 (and beyond) Recruiting - BigBird09
[quote]There is a reason he transferred to Samford [/quote] If Retin left after his junior year, he would've likely been headed to a similar school. Just because someone transfers to a mid-major doesn't mean they belong there. It's pretty harsh to judge a 5'10 PG for not living up to expectat...

[quote]Coleman couldn't, and from his tape it looks like Collins can. I think it's a significant upgrade[/quote] Last year Coleman shot 34% on 2pt FGs. Collins shot 36% against lesser talent.Most of Corban's scoring will be done from the perimeter. Highlights can make anybody look good at somethi...

I'm hoping there's an Arthur Edwards of post players that we can add for next year. If Donta and Jimmie stay healthy, we'll be fine, but if we lose one, it'll be interesting to see who backs up the 5 position......

Sorry if this isn't new, but LA Tech transfer Dayon Griffin is supposedly considering Alabama according to ESPN's transfer list. Not immediately eligible, but as a Sophomore averaged 11.3 ppg on 48% from the field and a high volume 38% from deep....

re: Alabama picks up basketball transfer - BigBird09
At LSU the kid had 30 turnovers in limited playing time and posted almost 0.5 ast/to ratio. His last season at Morehead State he played more than 3.5x more minutes, had just 6 more turnovers, and posted almost a 3.0 ast/to ratio. Pretty clear this isn't the same player y'all saw....
