Alabama extends offer to 2024 SF from Connecticut

·2 min read

Alabama’s coaching staff extended an offer to 2024 small forward Tyler Betsey on Sunday. Betsey confirmed the news via his Twitter. He is the fifth small forward that the Tide has offered thus far in the 2024 recruiting class.

Betsey is listed at 6-foot-8, 175 pounds, according to 247Sports. He currently attends in Windsor, Connecticut. Although he isn’t ranked among a few recruiting sites, he still has received several offers heading into his junior season. Some programs that have offered Betsey so far are Connecticut, Iona, Iowa, Nebraska and Rutgers.

Betsey is ranked as the No. 75 player in the nation, according to On3’s Rankings. Alabama fits his playing style and would be a nice fit. In an interview with On3’s Jamie Shaw, here is what Betsey said about how much location played a factor in his decision:

“Location won’t really be a factor for me in my decision. I do want to play fast, get up and down and shoot the ball. I also want to play man defense.”

Head coach Nate Oats likes for his players to get out in transition and create easy baskets. Betsey possesses great size and enough athleticism to see the floor early and often. It will be interesting to see how Betsey performs during his junior season and how his recruitment unfolds.

Roll Tide Wire will continue to follow Betsey’s recruitment as well as other Alabama basketball targets.
