Alabama got one of its best recruits ever when point guard and five-star and recruit Collin Sexton committed to them last year. However, it appears he has some eligibility issues he has to work out with the NCAA before he can step foot on the court. This was in a press release from the school.
“The NCAA informed us late this afternoon that Colin Sexton has not had his eligibility reinstated by the NCAA.
“We don’t have any further information at this time, but we will continue to cooperate with the NCAA and work toward a resolution that results in Colin’s timely reinstatement.
“While we are disappointed, the right decision was to err on the side of caution for tonight’s exhibition game.”
Alabama staffer Kobie Baker resigned earlier this year because of the FBI probe into players taking bribes from assistant coaches and Sexton was reportedly involved in it. This eligibility issue could be stemming from that, but it is unclear at the moment.
