Mitcham, a 6-foot-2 forward, is Alabama's fifth member of the incoming class as she joins Kaneisha Horn, Khristian Lee, Shafontaye Myers and Jasmine Robinson.

"Alicia is a very versatile player that can be a factor both inside and out," said Alabama Coach Wendell Hudson. "She's real athletic and will be a great asset to this program. We are excited about her joining us."

The Balch Springs, Tex., native spent the 2009-10 season as a member of the Panola College women's basketball team where she led the Fillies with 15.8 points per game and 11.4 rebounds per contest. In addition, Mitcham chipped in 2.0 steals and 2.0 blocks per outing.

Mitcham averaged 19 points and 12 rebounds for West Mesquite High School and was named All-State and All-Region by the Texas Girls Coaches Association and the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches. In addition, she was awarded Most Valuable Player honors in District 10-4A.
