Anselem to Reclassify to 2020
According to Andrew Slater of The Athletic, four-star Frank Anselem will reclassify into the 2020 recruiting class. Anselem is a 6-foot-10 center out of Prolific Prep in California. The young center recently named Alabama as one of his final three schools according to Adam Zagoria's blog. The college basketball signing date is tomorrow, April 15.
Alabama, Georgia and LSU are the three finalists for the talented center. If he spurns the Crimson Tide for one of the other schools he will quickly turn from friend to foe on the hardwood. Anselem was the 76th overall prospect in the 2021 class before choosing to reclassify into the 2020 class.
Anselem is from Suwanee, Georgia and averaged 11.8 points and 8.5 rebounds per game for Prolific Prep, according to prepcircuit.com's stat-keeping.
The Crimson Tide currently boasts the number 17 recruiting class for the 2020 cycle. The class does not factor in graduate transfer from Yale Jordan Bruner in its rankings. In total the Tide is set to bring five new players into the program in 2020 currently.
Alabama lost James Bolden to graduation and Raymond Hawkins to the transfer portal. Kira Lewis Jr., John Petty Jr. and Herb Jones are currently testing the NBA Draft process, should the Tide bring back one of the three players Oats will find himself over the scholarship limit. Bringing in Anselem would put him further over the limit and the Tide would need some defections to satisfy scholarship limitations.
