TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama’s basketball staff has been working the recruiting trail in recent weeks, and that paid off late Monday night.
Morehead State guard Corban Collins has decided to finish out his playing career at Alabama, a source confirmed to SEC Country.

Collins took a visit to Tuscaloosa this weekend with Alabama coach Avery Johnson and the rest of the program.
Originally a member of the 2012 recruiting cycle, Collins spent his first season at LSU. He averaged just 2.6 points per game, but shot 46 percent from 3-point range.
Collins spent this past season at Morehead State where he averaged 11 points, 2.5 rebounds and three assists per game while shooting 42 percent from the 3-point arc. He was named Second Team All-OVC.
Johnson and his staff likely hope the 6-foot-3, 190-pound guard can bring instant offense, particularly shooting, to an Alabama backcourt that lost two of its top scorers in Retin Obasohan and Arthur Edwards.
