Alabama PG signee Collin Sexton is the first McDonald’s All-American that Alabama has signed in several years, and he is having a good time. He started off by winning Tuesday’s dunk contest with this pair of gems:

Great stuff, but he was hardly finished. Lest anyone think he is just a flyer, Collin showed off some Globetrotter-esque passing ability in the actual game:

ESPN analyst and former Duke and Chicago Bulls guard Jay Williams said that he believes that Collin is actually a bit underrated, calling him a top 5 player and one of the most exciting prospects he has seen in years. Exciting times for Alabama basketball, indeed.
Buckle up and Roll Tide.
