July 4 Open Thread: Is Nate Oats about to add another elite prospect?

What an offseason for Alabama basketball

NCAA Basketball: South Carolina at Alabama Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Independence Day, everyone.

As you take the day to celebrate freedom, do some grilling and maybe catch some fireworks, consider this your open thread to discuss whatever may be on your mind.

One bit of Alabama-related news to report: 6’11” big man Alex Tchikou, from France by way of Arizona, has reclassified to the 2020 class similarly to Kira Lewis a couple years ago, and all eight of his crystal balls point toward the Tide. He is ranked as the #58 player overall in the class and would likely be around for at least two seasons due to age.

“Frentchi” can handle the ball and shoot it exceptionally well for a player his size, and he has a cool story to boot.

That dude would instantly become one of the most popular folks in Tuscaloosa. Hopefully the insiders know what they are talking about. Alex would be the cherry on top of what has already been a surreal offseason for Nate Oats.

Stay tuned.

Enjoy your loved ones this weekend, folks. We’ll see you on Monday.

Roll Tide.
