SEC Basketball Signing Day Headlines

The spring signing period for college basketball began on Wednesday.

The spring signing day can be quiet for many programs that either finished their class in the fall or have to wait past signing day to find an extra player or two.

Here’s a look at what happened around the SEC on Wednesday.

1. Alabama has three scholarships available to use. Here’s a look at who could join the Crimson Tide.

2. LSU’s basketball recruiting is on hold while the Tigers search for a new coach.

3. Mississippi State released point guard signee Josh Gray from his national letter of intent.

4. That’s why the top priority for new Bulldogs coach Rick Ray is to “get a point guard.”

5. Ole Miss added two junior college players to the class of 2012.

6. Shawn Smith was signed to add depth to Texas A&M’s guard position.

7. Center Nerlens Noel says he is “coming for a Championship” at Kentucky.

8. The Noel-Anthony Davis comparisons are unfair, says Noel’s high school coach.

Florida Basketball Lands Post Player For 2011

Florida’s basketball team has received a commitment from forward Walter Pitchford.

Pitchford, who signed with DePaul in 2010 before asking out of his letter when Oliver Purnell was named head coach, is playing at Summit Christian Academy in East Lansing, Mich., this year.

Pitchford will be ready to play for Florida this fall. He will be allowed to sign a national letter of intent with the Gators in April when the spring signing period begins.

Pitchford is the second member of Florida’s class of 2011. Florida has already signed guard Brandon Beal, who was recently named to the McDonald’s All-American team.
