2018 Sacred Heart (AL) wing Diante Wood (@1k_youngtrill) will officially visit Alabama October 13-15— Garrett Tucker (@GTuckerHoops) August 17, 2017
Wood's head coach at Sacred Heart Catholic School - Ralpheal Graves - was quoted in a recent Bama Online article that Diante is in contact with the Bama staff every day, and that he has a very close relationship with Antoine Pettway. If Bama emerges as Wood's leader, don't be surprised if he commits to Alabama after his official visit in October. Here's some recent video of Diante.
In other recruiting news: It's unclear, but it appears that 2018 4-star guard Jared Butler, whom I wrote about here, is either visiting the campus or is hosting Avery Johnson for an in-home visit. His brother, Drew Butler, composed the following tweets today.
My brother, Jared, has met Avery Johnson. He has spent the day with Avery Johnson.— Drew Butler (@KingDrewButler) August 20, 2017
You all are loved. Thank You Alabama Crimson Tide Fans and those alike for showing such love and appreciation for the school and Jared.— Drew Butler (@KingDrewButler) August 20, 2017
