Talk about a three pointer at the buzzer!!!  (He shoots he scores...3 points for Nate Oats!)  Alabama head basketball coach Nate Oats received a late verbal commitment from a big basketball recruit named Alex Tchikou.  Bama's new power forward is ranked as the sixth best forward in the nation according to Rivals.com.  This guy is so talented some recruiting experts say Alabama may be a top 10 basketball recruiting school this year.  #YesPlease

In a press release. from the University of Alabama today, Coach Oats said, “Alex is exactly the type of front court player we’re looking for in our system, He’s long and athletic with guard skills. He can shoot and play on the perimeter as a 6-11 wing while also adding rebounding and shot-blocking in the paint. Alex’s attitude and work ethic is outstanding and he has shown tremendous improvement in the past year. Alex has great upside and we’re confident he will fit in perfect with the gym rats we currently have in our program.”

Alex Tchikou chose the Crimson tide over Arizona, Florida State, Mississippi State and the dang cowbells, Oregon and USC.  #WildBillShow #RollTide
