TUSCALOOSA — Former Gadsden City standout Jeff Garrett has signed to play basketball for Alabama.
Alabama men’s basketball coach Anthony Grant said in a university release Monday that the 6-foot-7, 210-pound forward had signed a National Letter of Intent with the Crimson Tide.
Garrett, who originally is from Gadsden, played the 2013-14 season at Oldsmar Christian School in Oldsmar, Fla.
As a senior at Oldsmar Christian, Garrett averaged 18.3 points, 10.1 rebounds, four assists and two blocks per game.
Prior to joining Oldsmar Christian, Garrett averaged a double-double for Gadsden City. He averaged 14.4 points and 10.2 rebounds per game for the Titans as a junior.
Garrett was a member of The Gadsden Times’ All-Etowah County first team for 2012-2013 season.
So, at one point, Gadsden City had potentially 3 D-1 prospects on the same basketball team. Garrett and the others all transferred out, including Rakim Lubin (UConn signee), and 7'0" rising senior Trey Kalina (uncommitted as of yet)....
