If I had to guess, I say Alabama lands one more front-court player. Luke Cothron’s academic eligibility is a huge question mark, and Marcus Thornton, out of Atlanta, might be a long shot. That leaves Jason Carter as our best bet, and it sounds like he may decide by the end of this week.

Greg Ostendorf | Basketball Recruiting Blog, Tuscaloosa News First of all, kudos to the Tuscaloosa News for adding this to their site tidesports.com. I recommend it for those who follow basketball closely. Secondly, I think he sums up pretty well where we stand with basketball recruiting as things begin to wind down here in the late signing period. With us picking up JuCo point guard Kendall Durant as our third perimeter signee this weekend, and with no freshmen or sophomore post players set to be on the roster for next year, all indications are that we will sign one of the three post players listed in the quote above. Cothron and Thornton are higher-rated prospects, but as mentioned above, qualifying issues have arisen recently to lead many experts and apparently coaches, including Grant, to think Cothron may not be worth the trouble. Meanwhile Thornton has us in his top seven, but there's some very fierce competition from some big-time programs there that make him, well, a long shot. Carter is down to deciding between Ole Miss and Alabama, having visited each school the past two weekends. He is expected to announce within the week.
