TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama coach Anthony Grant has signed
two out-of-state players in the early signing period.

it takes to be successful.

junior, averaging 18.6 points and 6.3 assists.

Hankerson is also rated a four-star prospect after averaging
21.6 points and six rebounds a game to lead Coral Reef High School
to its first state title.
