Aiden Sherrell Commits To Alabama


Aiden Sherrell, the No. 24 prospect in the MADE Hoops 2024 rankings and a MADE Hoops alum, has committed to Alabama. He chose the Crimson Tide over additional finalists of Michigan State, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Texas, becoming Nate Oats' first pledge in the senior recruiting class.




Sherrell was originally supposed to commit back on August 13th, but pushed back his commitment date. Alabama was the favorite then, too, and had been trending towards the Tide since late in 2022. The top 25 prospect visited Alabama just over a year ago on September 23rd, and had taken additional visits to Michigan State, St. John's, Oklahoma, and Ohio State since then.


“I also have a great relationship with them. Coach (Nate) Oats is a great coach and their playing style is great. I actually see myself playing in their play style, it’s fast, quick, and they’re a great team.” - Sherrell to Travis Graf in February


Nate Oats reeled in one of his top targets to kick things off in the 2024 class, but there's still plenty of big fish out there on Alabama's board. The first couple that come to mind are five-star guard Boogie Fland, who just went on an official visit to Tuscaloosa and is down to eight schools. Another is Derrion Reid, a top 50 prospect in the MADE Hoops rankings, who just released a top three featuring Alabama. The Tide are also in the top eight for four-star guard Jase Richardson, who officially visited Alabama within recent weeks.

Boogie Fland Top Eight: Alabama, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, North Carolina, St. John's, and UConn

Derrion Reid Top Three: Alabama, Florida State, and Georgia

Jase Richardson Top Eight: Alabama, Arkansas, Cincinnati, Michigan State, San Diego State, Stanford, USC, and Virginia 


Alabama is the perfect fit schematically for Sherrell, who excels as a rim running athlete and has also showed promising shooting traits from the outside. He would fit into the the mold of the Noah Clowney role, who wasn't as highly-touted as Sherrell coming out of high school, but thrived and was a first round draft pick in this year's draft. I've always been high on Sherrell as an athlete with a developing skill set and the ability to impact games on both ends of the floor. Nate Oats' system is going to give him the freedom to thrive and showcase those abilities, not putting him in a box.
