TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It’s never too early to start developing relationships in recruiting, and the University of Alabama hosted two top basketball prospects for the class of 2015 over the weekend, as Rockwall, Texas, teammates Austin Grandstaff and Elijah Thomas visited Tuscaloosa for the Crimson Tide’s skills camp.

“It was good,” Thomas said. “We saw a lot of activities and what not, met a lot of people. We played video games in the hotel room, went swimming and just chilled. We had a good visit. It was fun.”

Thomas, a 6-foot-8 five-star, ranked No. 7 nationally in 2015, was surprised with how much he enjoyed the visit to UA.
