Tide Signs 7'1" Swedish Center, Carl Engstrom

Alabama has added a late addition to its 2010 recruiting class with Swedish 7'1" center, Carl Engstrom. Engstrom has apparently only been playing basketball for 14 months so it may be asking a lot of him to be a major contributor next season. However, due to the lack of frontcourt depth Alabama was facing prior to his commitment, his size will be welcome. Other programs hoping to sign Engstrom were Seton Hall, Florida State, Baylor and Georgia Tech so Grant and his staff were obviously not the only ones who see potential in this kid. As you can see in this video, the kid does indeed have some skill. With a year or two of seasoning, Engstrom could prove to be a steal.

I had read reports that he was on campus last week. I am grateful for the good news.
