Last week, Alabama lost a cornerstone of its backcourt, when Mo Williams was drafted in the second round by the NBA. Seven days later, Coach Mark Gottfried has completed a brand new backcourt and this one is going to be three-deep.
Glenn Miles, an outstanding combo guard, committed to the Tide on Wednesday. He loved the idea of a deep backcourt. "Really just the three guard offense [was attractive] that we were going to be running. I fit in good in that right there. I'll be the leader."
The Crimson Tide's new three-guard backcourt that will debut in the fall of 2004 is deep and talented. Top 50 talent Albert Webber is the hired gun on the wing. Ronnie Steele, the first commitment for the Tide, is the point man. Together, Gottfried has three Top 100 talents heading to Tuscaloosa.
Miles knew he wanted to go to ‘Bama since the 10th grade and said it was his family and coaches who kept the process moving slower. He was ready to commit a while back, that's how much he favored the Crimson Tide.
Last year he averaged 15 points a game and runs with the Southeast Pump ‘n Run on the circuit.
