UPDATE: Okay. Evan Daniels, who originally reported that Alabama had rescinded their offer to Riley Norris, tweeted this morning that Alabama is once again involved with Norris. Whatever bridge had been burned has obviously been repaired. Ah, the long strange trip of recruiting.
In other recruiting news, 2014 SG Devin Mitchell will be announcing his top eight schools at noon today. Alabama is expected to be among those schools. Mitchell has had plenty of nice things to say about Grant and his staff, but his stock is rising heading into his Senior year of high school and it appears his recruitment could last well into the spring. I've sang the praises of Mitchell in a previous post so my hope is that he eventually chooses to come to Alabama.
UPDATE 2: And now it appears Riley Norris has committed to Alabama. Dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria!
It has been a long process, but I'm excited to say I chose to play ball at the University of Alabama! 🏀 pic.twitter.com/H5Rg7EDeXd

UPDATE: As expected, Alabama makes the cut for Devin Mitchell. Other schools in his top 8 are K-State, Memphis, Wake Forest, UAB, Georgia, Cincinnati and Ole Miss.
This video highlights some of the reasons I like Mitchell's game so much.
