Alabama coach Avery Johnson is always talking about going fast, and on Wednesday he started the early signing period off the same way.
The No. 6 junior college player according to 247 sports, Ar’mond Davis, signed for Alabama first followed by the 247 sports No. 59 prospect coming straight out of high school, Braxton Key. The Crimson Tide’s other key commit the No. 15 prospect out of high school, Terrance Ferguson, remains unsigned.
Johnson said he was pleased to see those two guys follow through with their commitments and sign. He said he thought Davis was one of the best prospects in the country regardless of junior college involvement or not.
“He is an outstanding young man, long athletic wing player that can shoot the ball from here to Idaho,” Johnson said. “We need that type of scoring and shooting and underrated ball handler.”
Key was one of the first players Johnson recruited when he got the job. He said associate head coach Bob Simon showed Johnson video of Key first.
“I was like ‘Wow this guy can do it all, pass dribble and shoot.’ A multi-positional player, high basketball IQ, [with] great size,” Johnson said. “[They’re] just two quality, high character young men that we’ve added that’s extremely talented.”
