Alabama Basketball 2023 Signee To Join Team Early
Nate Oats left an extra scholarship spot open for the 2022-2023 season, but a longtime Alabama signee will soon fill that empty spot.
Davin Cosby, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard, is one of four Alabama signees from the 2023 recruiting cycle. Cosby told On3's Joe Tipton of his plans to enroll early in the spring semester on Saturday night.
Cosby attended Word of God Christian Academy this past fall. The four-star prospect is ranked No. 103 and the fourth best player from Virginia in the 2023 class according to On3.
The shooting guard committed to Alabama Sept. 24, joining the likes of power forward Sam Walters and point guard R.J. Johnson. Cosby, Walters, and Johnson all signed alongside small forward Mouhamed Dioubate in early November.
Cosby will officially be part of Alabama's 2022-2023 roster, but will redshirt this season.
He will have the opportunity to immerse himself into with the day-to-day operations of the No. 8 team in the country. Getting in the weight room and acclimating to college life will be a major focus for Cosby this upcoming semester.
Alabama is currently struggling with injuries at Cosby's position as a wing. Nimari Burnett is out indefinitely after undergoing wrist surgery, Darius Miles missed Wednesday's SEC opener againts Mississippi State, and Dom Welch is slowly returning to action.
Nate Oats raved about Cosby's skill in a press release on Nov. 9, calling Cosby "one of the best shooting guards in the country."
With four signees, Alabama basketball has the No. 24 ranked 2023 recruiting class according to On3.
