In addition, it was recently learned the Crimson Tide staff has been in contact with a least four transfer players.

  1. Jaelin Llewellyn – 6’2″ guard from Princeton. Llewellyn has started for Princeton the last two seasons. This past season he was 38.6% from three. He is also a low-turnover guy.
  2. Taylor Funk – 6’8″, 230lb. forward from St. Joseph’s. Funk has also started the past two seasons. This past season Funk made threes at 37.3%.
  3. Fardaws Aimaq – 6’11”, 245lb. forward from Utah Valley. Aimaq made 49% of his shots this season and averaged over 13 rebounds a game. He was a respectable 72.3% from the foul line.
  4. Camren Wynter – 6’2″ guard from Drexel. Wynter started 112 of his 114-game, Drexel career. He is not great at shooting threes but made 50.4% of his two-point attempts this season. He is an excellent free-throw shooter.

Might Nate Oats be willing to make room for all four players? He has considerable work in front of him to be able to answer that question.

Tide NCAA loss was no upset. dark. Next

Alabama Basketball will be a very different team next season. In terms of continuity, it will be similar to a John Calipari team, filled with newcomers. So much new talent will need time to come together. When it really matters in February and March, it might be one of the Tide’s most talented rosters ever.
