Nate Oats and Alabama seem to be the favorites to land former 5 star Nimari Burnett. Burnett has entered the transfer portal after one season with Texas Tech. The 6'4 guard would add to a dynamic back-court to pair up with Jd Davison who is also a 5 star in the 2021 class.
After a comeback win vs Georgia Saturday, Alabama will now set their focus towards a SEC quarterfinal matchup. The Tide will either face the 8 seed Kentucky Wildcats or the 9 seed Mississippi State Bulldogs this Friday in Nashville.
Alabama has been dealing with a handful of injuries this season, and now star Senior Herbert Jones playing status is in question. Jones has been banged up for quite some time now, and many have been asking the question if he should rest.
