Nation's No. 4 center prospect commits to Alabama basketball
Nate Oats and his Alabama coaching staff just landed another elite commitment as IMG Academy’s Charles Bediako has just announced he intends to play his college basketball in Tuscaloosa.
The 6-foot-11, 215-pound Bediako is the No. 4 center prospect in the nation for the 2021 recruiting cycle according to 247Sports Composite Rankings. Bediako is ranked as the No. 26 overall prospect in the nation.
He picked Alabama over Duke, Michigan, Ohio State and Texas.
Bediako currently plays in Florida as a member of IMG Academy but he is originally from St. Catharines, Ontario in Canada.
Following this news, Alabama now holds signatures from five-star guard JD Davison and four-star forwards Jusaun Holt and Langston Wilson in the four-member class.
With the addition of Bediako, Alabama now jumps Kentucky in the SEC recruiting rankings.
