Top100 SG Rylan Griffen commits to Alabama

Alabama football and basketball are in recruiting roles, and both are adding obligations left and right. On Tuesday, Nate Haver and the staff has brought in another great prospect in four star shooting guard Rylan Griffen.

The 6-foot-5, 180-pounder from Richardson, Texas, chose the Crimson Tide over Oklahoma, NC State and Kansas State.

“The only thing is how cool the coaches are. I felt like every coach out there is someone I can trust.

“You know, Coach (Bryan) Hodgson is my husband. He talks to me a lot, as well as Coach Oats. You don’t hear much from head coaches, but he makes sure he talks to me.”

Griffen joins a class with a five-star little attacker Brandon Miller, five star point guard Jaden Bradley, four star power forward Noah Clowney — with whom he officially visited Alabama — and top junior college power forward in Noah Pringle.

“They think I’m a good match,” Griffen said of the staff recruiting pitch. “They think I will be a good fit for the players they have deployed,” Griffen said. “It was (was) a difficult choice, but it’s nice to see that they have committed players there.”

Griffen is rated the No. 5 shooting guard and the No. 62 overall player in the country, according to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Rankings.

The stakes give Alabama what is currently the No. 3 class in the country, according to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite Team Recruiting Rankings.

Here’s 247Sports’ evaluation of the latest Tide pledge:

“Griffin is a scoring guard whose game is based on the top, and he will be as good as he wants at the basketball game. He has the tools to evolve into a high-level defender and the advantage to be a tough shotmaker. can throw the ball into the basket in different ways Griffin can score on all three levels on the floor and is a solid shooter but he could use some improvement in that area of ​​the game Improving his sometimes shot selection could improve his development in that area and increase his overall field goal percentages he has a solid length combined with elite bounce if he gets a path to the rim he will definitely make something special above the rim worthy of the climax A very thin and slender swingman, adding weight and muscle, will be key in the production of Griffen at the high head level.Overall, Griffen is an exceptional on talented prospect. His ceiling will be defined as he becomes physically and functionally stronger and remains involved in all areas that affect winning.”
