Pennsylvania native and Junior College standout Langston Wilson lit up the recruiting trail all summer long. The 6-foot-9 prospect out of Georgia Highlands landed 30+ scholarship offers and bolstered himself as one of the nation’s top-rated junior college prospects in America.

Now, he commits to Alabama and Nate Oats, he told Stockrisers.com.

It’s the day and age where Universities pride themselves on JUCO prospects and they all usually make an immediate impact on and off the court once they enroll in school. Wilson, who will have two years of eligibility in college after this season, was a major impact as a redshirt freshman this season.

Wilson played in 32 games as a redshirt freshman this past season, averaging 10.1 points and 7.6 rebounds per game, as the Chargers finished with a 24-8 record.


Why the Tide?

Wilson: “The University of Alabama is just a situation I felt comfortable in. I’m very confident in their plan for me.”

Your relationship with Nate Oats.

Wilson: “Coach Oats and I talk a great bit about everything. He’s coached and done very well with JUCO players like myself. That will be a very big deal, day one when I get to Alabama.”

JD Davison, how impactful was he here?

Wilson: “JD was my lead recruiter man [laughs], now we just need to go get Caleb and Charles man.”
