Nimari Burnett announced his commitment to Alabama via social media and will join the program in the summer. He chose the Crimson Tide this time over LSU, Illinois, Vanderbilt, Oregon, USC and Auburn.
The 6-foot-4, 190-pound guard left the Red Raiders back in January after appearing in 12 games and averaging 5.3 points, 1.8 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 0.9 assists.
He shot 88.9 percent from the free throw line (32-of-36).
Burnett is the second addition to the Crimson Tide’s 2021 recruiting class this week. Elite 6-foot-11 big man Charles Bediako pledged to Alabama on Tuesday.
