Alabama dips in basketball class rankings

As of a month ago, the Crimson Tide were No. 9 overall in the rankings, but teams like USC, Iowa State, Louisville and West Virginia have since leapfrogged UA.

Alabama still holds a strong class with the committment of ESPN 100 center Jimmie Taylor. The Greensboro, Ala., native is joined by fellow commit and ESPN 100 forward Shannon Hale.
