Avery Johnson Lands Graduate Transfer from Morehead State
Alabama men's basketball coach Avery Johnson said last week that he would like to add two or three more players to his roster, and he's grabbed the first addition on Monday night.
Morehead State guard Corban Collins visited Tuscaloosa over the weekend and decided to play his final college season with the Crimson Tide.
The pickup comes at a position of need for Alabama. The program lost three of its top four scorers from last season and all of those came at the guard spot. Retin Obasohan and Arthur Edwards graduated, while Justin Coleman transferred to Samford. The Crimson Tide now has four true guards on scholarship with the addition of Collins.
The 6-foot-3, 190 pound point guard averaged 11 points and 2.5 assists per game in 2015-16, which earned him second team All-OVC honors. He knocked down 42.5% of his 3-point attempts, which was second-best in the conference.
The Alabama coaching staff continues to hit the recruiting trail in search for a couple more players to bring in before the fall.
