Alabama basketball lands graduate transfer guard |

Morehead State graduate transfer guard Corban Collins is transferring to Alabama, sources told The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Collins, who began his college career at LSU, averaged 11 points per game as a redshirt junior at Morehead State last season.

The University followed with an official announcement:

Collins is a classic two-guard who adds a much-needed shooter in the backcourt, managing 42.5% from three-point range in 2015-16. He will be eligible immediately for his final season.

Welcome and Roll Tide, Corban!
