Alabama signs 3 in-state prospects

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Alabama coach Anthony Grant has signed three of the state's top prospects.

The Crimson Tide coach signed power forward Donta' Hall, small forward Brandon Austin and combo guard Dazon Ingram on Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period.

Hall averaged 11.7 points, 10.1 rebounds and 6.7 blocks per game as a junior at Luverne High School. He is regarded as the state's top prospect.

Ingram averaged 20 points, 10 rebounds and six assists per game last season at Theodore High School.

Austin averaged 15 points, seven rebounds and four assists as a junior at Carver High School in Montgomery.

Grant says: ''Our priority is to try and keep the best players in our state at home and I feel like we have done that with this class.''
