Jaylen Forbes, a four-star shooting guard prospect out of the 2019 recruiting class, has committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide.

One of the 100 best players in his entire class, Forbes chose Alabama over Murray State, Kansas State and a few other notable programs. Obviously, considering Forbes’ pedigree, this is a good get for Avery Johnson.
As a player, Forbes is notable for a few different reasons, including his ability to hit shots from pretty much anywhere on the court. Likely — at least initially — to be the sort of talent who will run off screens to get shots off, it might take a season or two before he’s able to create for himself.
Then again, he still has a few year before he has to hit campus. A lot of development can happen between now and then.
Nevertheless, this is a good get for the Alabama Crimson Tide. If you’re a member of the fanbase, how do you feel about Johnson landing Jaylen Forbes? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter and/or in the comments section below.
