Alabama Basketball Included in Sports Illustrated’s Latest Preseason Top 25

Alabama basketball remained in the top 25 in Sports Illustrated’s latest preseason rankings released Saturday. The Crimson Tide dropped down to No. 23 after coming in at No. 12 in Sports Illustrated’s way-too-early top 25 in April. The latest rankings were updated to reflect recent transfer additions and draft decisions.

Alabama added two transfers this offseason in Ohio guard Mark Sears and St. Bonaventure guard Dominick Welch. The Crimson Tide also brought in a five-man signing class featuring four SI99 members in small forward Brandon Miller, point guard Jaden Bradley, forward Noah Clowney and shooting guard Rylan Griffen as well as highly-rated JUCO forward Nick Pringle.
