What are Alabama Basketball’s Chances with 5-Stars Collin Sexton and Troy Brown?
The home opener for Alabama football brought out number of recruits to Bryant-Denny Stadium, but the two biggest names were visiting for another sport.
Five-star guard Collin Sexton and five-star forward Troy Brown both took official visits to Tuscaloosa over the weekend. If Avery Johnson could somehow land both players, it would be a gamechanger for the men's basketball program.
But how realistic is that possibility?
247Sports recruiting reporter Hank South joined Southern Fried Sports to discuss the visit and give his opinion on where Sexton and Brown are leaning.
"I wouldn't say it's a longshot with either of them," South told host Travis Reier. "I think if you wanted to pin one guy that they're better shape with I'd say Collin Sexton. But then again, Troy Brown, he has offers from pretty much any big name basketball school you can think of and he's chosen to take an official visit to Alabama."
South said Alabama has prioritized both players through the process, which has helped their chances. The 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions have Alabama leading for Sexton but California in front for Brown.
