Three prep basketball players intend to play at Alabama

From staff reports

Three high school basketball players signed their national letters of intent to play basketball for The University of Alabama on Wednesday. The group includes forwards JaMychal Green and Tony Mitchell and guard Andrew Steele.

“I think we’ve addressed some specific needs for our team,” Tide coach Mark Gottfried said. “I think we have three very talented basketball players who are also very high quality individuals, which stays consistent with what we’ve tried to do from a recruiting standpoint.”

A 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward from St. Jude High in Montgomery, Green is considered the top player in this year’s recruiting class.

Rivals.com lists him as the No. 25 player in the country, while Scout.com has him ranked No. 17.

“JaMychal is a terrific inside player. He’s got strength, size, good hands, good feet,” said Gottfried. “He also has a toughness about him that I really like. We’re excited about him joining our program.”

The younger brother of injured Tide point guard Ronald Steele, Andrew Steele is a 6-foot-3 and 195-pound guard at John Carroll Catholic High in Birmingham.

He ranks No. 50 overall nationally by Rivals.com.

Mitchell is a 6-foot-6, 190-pound forward from Swainsboro High (Ga.).

He is the No. 38 ranked prospect on Rivals.com.
