Ambrose is the #79 prospect in the 2020 class according to 247 sports. Considering the dearth of frontcourt depth on the current roster, Ambrose is a huge get.
From 247’s Evan Daniels:
“I picked them because they are the best choice for development and can get me to the next level,” Ambrose-Hylton said. “They take decent players and get them to the next level. Like at Buffalo and with Herb [Jones] just hearing about the teaching of the game and how much they care about their players.”
Ambrose-Hylton, a standout at Andrews Osborne Academy, said ultimately his decision came down to Alabama and NC State, although Arkansas, Dayton and USC were also in his top five. Ambrose-Hylton took official visits to all five schools.
Ambrose is Alabama first commitment in the 2020 cycle.
Welcome, Keon, and Roll Tide!
