Courtesy of Reggie RankinAnthony Barber's commitment to North Carolina State has Alabama readjusting its basketball recruiting board quite a bit.In 2013, point guard was supposed to be a priority for the University of Alabama’s recruiting class, but over the weekend, the Crimson Tide lost two top targets as five-star Anthony ‘Cat’ Barber committed to North Carolina State and combo guard Rashawn Powell committed to Memphis. UA was a finalist for each recruit.
The Alabama coaching staff had also been in contact with ESPN 100 point guards Kendal Harris and Jaren Sina, but Harris committed to USC and Sina gave a verbal pledge to Northwestern. Now, the Tide are still searching for their floor general of the future.
Missing out on Barber and Powell hurts, but it doesn’t take away from a good class that still has the potential to be a great class. Alabama already has commitments from 6-foot-10 center Jimmie Taylor and ESPN 100 forward Shannon Hale, and it's not done. Here’s a look at some of the top prospects available and interested in the Tide.
