Alabama finished the 2019 recruiting cycle with the No. 34 recruiting class in the nation.
Shortly after taking the head coaching position at Alabama, Nate Oats finished off the class by adding 6-foot-9, 220-pound center Raymond Hawkins.
Forbes, Shackelford and Gary are players who were originally signed by Avery Johnson before he was let go as head coach, but Oats did a nice job re-recruiting them to stay committed to Alabama.
It does not count towards the recruiting class, but Alabama landing Jahvon Quinerly, the 6-foot, 180-pound point guard transfer from Villanova, was the biggest addition the Crimson Tide had this offseason.
Overall, this class includes nice core players who will see early playing time at Alabama and will be vital to the Crimson Tide’s depth and future success.
