Pebblebrook’s Collin Sexton picks Alabama over Tech

Georgia Tech lost out on its second high-profile prospect of the day, as five-star Pebblebrook High guard Collin Sexton announced Thursday that he will sign his national letter of intent with Alabama.

Besides Alabama and Tech, Sexton’s final choices were Kansas and N.C. State.

Sexton was one of the fastest-rising prospects in the country, as he led the U.S. under-17 national team to a world championship this summer and earned tournament MVP honors. He is rated the No. 10 prospect nationally by ESPN, the No. 2 player in the state and the No. 2 shooting guard nationally.

Earlier in the day, Norcross High forward Rayshaun Hammonds, a four-star prospect, made public his decision to attend Georgia, selecting the Bulldogs over Tech, Memphis and Texas.
