A Quick Look



Pos. Rank

Quick Analysis

Levi Randolph


SG (#9)

He is a great shooter and is the best passer for non-point guards in this class, giving him the capability of playing any perimeter position. He is very smart and has a great mid-range game as well.

Trevor Lacey


SG (#11)

Lacey is a great shooter who has outstanding range and consistency. He can both catch and shoot and shoot off the dribble at a high level. He can also shoot coming off a pick and with guys in his face.

Nick Jacobs



Jacobs gives Alabama a true back-to-the-basket post-player who has good strength and hands that a big man needs. He has good footwork too and creates space well for a big man to get off his shot.

Rodney Cooper



Rodney Cooper is another good shooter that the Crimson Tide is bringing in but he is also a quality defender. His length can cause problems for defenders since he can get his long arms into passing lanes or use them to block shots.

Moussa Gueye


C (NR)

This seven-footer is a defensive specialist who is an effective shot-blocker and rebounder inside the paint and has the potential to make a big impact in the SEC because of his raw talent and size.

Retin Ojomoh



This Belgium-native has good speed and strength and adds depth to Alabama’s back court since he’s the Crimson Tide’s fourth guard in their class.


Shooting guards Levi Randolph (#31) and Trevor Lacey (#37) anchor an impressive Crimson Tide recruiting class and are both in-state products that Alabama head coach Anthony Grant was able to reel in. Both are big-time scorers who can hit shots from all over the floor but the difference between the two is that Randolph has a better mid-range game whereas Lacey is much stronger, allowing him to absorb contact in the paint and finish through it for the bucket. Alabama also brings in small forward Rodney Cooper who is another good shooter and also plays well on defense since he can block shots and get his arms into passing lanes because of his length. As for their front court, the Crimson Tide will have power forward Nick Jacobs and center Moussa Gueye who will provide Alabama with an inside presence that will disrupt opponents who slash into the lane.
