Texas transfer Tevin Mack to Alabama

Avery Johnson picked a key transfer in 6-foot-6 wing Tevin Mack on Wednesday.

Texas transfer and former four-star recruit Tevin Mack committed to Alabama, he told Scout. 

Mack, a 6-foot-6 wing, took a visit to Alabama's campus on Wednesday. He also visited and strongly considered Georgia.

Mack played just 15 games at Texas last season and was suspended indefinitely in mid-January. When on the court, Mack was quite productive, averaging 14.8 points, while shooting 39.1-percent from three and reeling in 4.8 rebounds.

Mack, who averaged 5.1 points a game as a freshman, will be forced to sit out this coming season, before having two years of eligibility at Alabama. 

Johnson has had quite a bit of recent success on the recruiting trail, as their five-man 2017 class ranks No. 5 nationally. That group includes Collin Sexton, the nation's top point guard, plus two other recruits ranked among the top 60 in the country.
