The Alabama Men's Basketball Team has landed one of the top recruits in the nation. Greensboro High School star Jimmie Taylor has verbally committed to the Crimson Tide, and plans to sign with Alabama in November.
Taylor is ranked as the 30th best recruit in the nation for the 2013 signing class. The six-foot-nine forward averaged more than nine points and five rebounds per game as a junior, helping Greensboro win the Class 3A State Championship this past season.
He chose Alabama over Vanderbilt and Louisville. Taylor is related to former Tide star Erwin Dudley.
