Hoops recruiting rankings released

May, 24, 2012
Coach Anthony Grant and the rest of the University of Alabama basketball staff are poised to make an impact recruiting in 2013. Today, ESPN released the top 100 recruits for next year's class, including two Crimson Tide commits. Recent commit Jimmie Taylor checked in at No. 49 on the ESPN 100 and power forward Shannon Hale just made the cut at No. 99.

Last month, Grant told reporters he would save his open scholarships (created by the departure of JaMychal Green, Tony Mitchell and Charles Hankerson) for next year, rather than load up on 2012 commits.

Looking to the even more distant future, ESPN released both the early 2014 and 2015 rankings. Stay tuned at TideNation as we update you on how the UA basketball staff goes after college basektball's future stars.
