Second Time A Charm For Eblen

Ben Eblen had other official visits scheduled but he's not going to need them. After returning home from an SEC program, Eblen ended his process.

Things may be new for Anthony Grant at Alabama but he's renewing an old acquaintance.

"Ben just got back last night from his visit to Alabama," Florida Air Academy coach Aubin Goporo said. "He's committed to Alabama."

Eblen signed in the fall with Grant when he was the head coach at VCU. After a coaching change, Eblen requested his release form and was granted a release from his letter of intent.

Cincinnati and Rutgers had visits that have been subsequently cancelled.

"When he got the release and Coach Grant called, the kid came into my office and said he just finished talking to Coach Grant. Just by hearing his voice … it was like starting over again. He was excited."

Eblen averaged 12 points and six assists for Florida Air Academy.
