Four-star guard Davin Cosby Jr. commits to Alabama

Nate Oats brings in another blue chip

We interrupt your college football Saturday to bring you some great news for Tide Hoops, as Davin Cosby Jr. has committed to Nate Oats and company.

The 4-star swingman becomes the third member of the 2023 class, joining 4-star forward, Sam Walters, and 3-star combo guard, R.J. Johnson, as commitments for Oats’ fifth recruiting class. The 6’5 product out of Raleigh, North Carolina chose Alabama over fellow finalists Virginia, Wake Forest, and NC State.

He’s a prototypical two-guard, capable of defending out on the perimeter and using his body control to get into the paint on the offensive end. But it’s Cosby’s shooting that has caught the eyes of many coaches across the country. Check it out for yourself:

With just over a month left before Alabama tips-off the 2022-23 hoops season, Nate Oats and his ace recruiters, Bryan Hodgson and Antoine Pettway, continue to get it done out on the trail.
