Devin CosbyNo. 109 prospect in the class of 2023 competed in the Alabama Crimson Tide, he told 247Sports.

6ft 5in, 180lb shooting guard from Raleigh, NC Word of God Christian dedicated Nate Oates and its staff compared to other programs including LSU, NC, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wake Forest.

“Since I got the offer, I would say they’ve been the most consistent in how they hired me,” Cosby said of why he chose Alabama. “Just going to school was the best fit for me. I love the campus, I love the players, I love the coaching staff and they all feel like family.”

Cosby had done his homework over the past month, making several official visits, but it was on that first weekend in September on the Tuscaloosa campus that it dawned on him that he was home.

“In fact, I would say, right after I saw them practice, they did everything and I could see myself in it, as well as the style of play,” he said of when he learned that Alabama is the place for him. “The way they play and the way Coach Oates manages his system, I see myself in that.”

Cosby is a strong defender who can really hit the perimeter, but he says he’ll bring more than that.

“A combo defender who can really throw the ball well and also handle the ball,” he said.

Cosby is the third commitment in the class of 2023 for Crimson Tide, joining fellow Top150 prospects R. J. Johnson and Sam Walters.
