Booth decides to end recruitment

In the Spring, a large hole will open up in the Alabama backcourt when Trevor Releford exhausts his eligibility.
It won't be easy for Anthony Grant and his staff to completely replace an All-SEC caliber floor general like Releford, but they
now have Releford's successor in the fold.
Four-star point guard Justin Coleman committed to the Crimson Tide on Wednesday. A 5-foot-10 product of Birmingham (Ala.) Wenonah, Coleman had been the Tide's priority through the summer and they were rewarded for their efforts.
Coleman confirmed his commitment to Rivals.com via text and was direct and to the point when asked why he picked them now.
"I felt like Bama is the right school for me," said Coleman.
Although he won't be the biggest point guard in the SEC, Coleman is plenty tough and at No. 92 nationally he's likely a bit underrated at this point.
Fearless with the ball, Coleman can really score and is a deadly shooter from deep. He's very quick to the rim but is more of a natural scorer than setup guy.
Because of how important Releford figures to be to the 2013-14 Crimson Tide, Coleman could be as important a point guard recruit as there is in the country. He plays a different style -- Releford was more of a setup guy coming out of high school -- but he should be an apt replacement who finds success in the Alabama backcourt.
