The best point guard recruit in the nation is heading to Alabama.
On Saturday, 5-star prospect JD Davison announced his commitment to the Crimson Tide:
The 6'3" and 175-pounder is considered the top recruit from the state of Alabama, the No. 1 point guard in the nation and the No. 9 player overall in the class of 2021, according to 247Sports' composite rankings.
He had a legendary junior season for Calhoun, averaging 30.4 points per game with 25 double-doubles while leading the school to a Class 2A championship. He's a two-time all-state selection and the two-time All-Metro Player of the Year.
Davison was pleased with his junior campaign, though his sights were quickly set on his senior year.
"I had a solid year. We won a championship, so it was one of the best years I've played," he toldI can most definitely improve a lot next year, and we're going back-to-back. We're going to work hard to get back there."
Putting up those sorts of numbers at the college level is unrealistic, but Davison brings a big game to Alabama, which just improved its 2021 recruiting class dramatically.
The school's 2021 recruiting class is also highlighted by 4-star small forward Jusaun Holt. Davison will continue the trend of talented guards at Alabama in recent years, following Collin Sexton to Kira Lewis Jr.
