Done Deal: Just In Alabama Confirm The Signing Of Another Top Star

Guard Aden Holloway, a transfer from Auburn, has committed to Alabama basketball.
Holloway, who has three years left of eligibility, was a five-star recruit in the 2023 class.

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama: According to a rumor from Joe Tipton of On3 Sports, Auburn transfer point guard Aden Holloway has committed to Alabama and Nate Oats, making the Iron Bowl of Basketball even more intriguing.

Before using the transfer portal, Holloway played just one season at Auburn. In the 2023 recruiting class, he was a highly sought-after five-star recruit and a McDonald’s All-American.


During a rookie season marked by many highs and lows, he averaged 7.3 points and 2.7 assists per game while starting 25 of 36 games for Auburn. At the season opener against Baylor, he scored 19 points, about as strong a start as anyone could have. Despite having trouble shooting the ball (season shooting percentage of about 30%), he frequently showed signs of promise.

Holloway joins an Alabama squad that needs stability at point guard while Mark Sears’ NBA Draft prospects are uncertain. He wants to restore some of Oats’s self-assurance in his free-flowing offense, which will try to maximize his shooting ability, which was one of his strongest suit in high school.

Holloway has joined guards Chris Youngblood of South Florida and Houston Mallette of Pepperdine as the third commitment Alabama has obtained through the transfer site. Five members of Alabama’s Final Four squad from the previous season have already left the program: Rylan Griffen, Nick Pringle, Sam Walters, Davin Cosby, and Kris Parker.

Due to Holloway’s commitment, Alabama will have one open roster place for the upcoming season; however, this could change in the following weeks due to more NBA Draft selections and transfer portal decisions. Holloway will be eligible for three more years.
