Tevin Mack is officially a member of the Alabama basketball program.
Mack, who will play his junior season for the Crimson Tide in 2018-19 after sitting out the upcoming season, previously announced his decision to play for Avery Johnson in May.
“We are very excited to welcome Tevin to the Alabama men’s basketball family,” Johnson said in the welcome announcement on the Alabama basketball team site. “Tevin will have to sit out a year, but will be able to practice and that will give him an opportunity to learn our system.”
Mack, a 6 foot 1 inch, 220 pound guard/forward, was Texas’ leading scorer a season ago, averaging 14.8 points per game to go along with 4.8 rebounds. He also shot 39.1 percent from 3-point range and scored in double figures in 11 of his 15 games played.
He only played in 15 games because of a couple of disciplinary issues. He was suspended at two different points in the season for separate violations of team rules, according to Kyle Boone of CBS Sports.
In his first career collegiate start, Mack actually faced Alabama and put up 11 second-half points in a Longhorns win.
