Alabama is officially closing in on a commitment from J.J. McCrery to a two-year deal worth more than $6.5 million.
The 6-foot-10, 235-pound senior guard will officially announce his decision Monday.
McCreary, a 6-9 forward who committed to the Crimson Tide in November, is expected to sign a two year, $8 million contract with the Tigers.
McReys name has come up a lot in recruiting circles, with several schools reportedly chasing the former Auburn star.
In November, 247Sports ranked McCreys as the No. 19 player in the 2018 class, which ranked No. 2 in the nation.
The 6-8, 210-pound McCreary was ranked as the second-best player in Auburn’s 2019 class.
He averaged a double-double with 15.3 points and 9.3 rebounds per game, leading the Tigers to the Final Four.
McCreys final season in Auburn was his sophomore season, when he averaged 12.2 points and 8.7 rebounds per contest.
He shot a career-high 45.4 percent from the field and shot 42.7 percent from beyond the arc, the best marks of his career.
The 5-10 McCrearies freshman season was marred by injuries, and he was sidelined for the first two games of the 2019 season with a foot injury.
The sophomore averaged 5.3 ppg, 3.9 rpg and 3.7 apg in just 26.9 minutes per game.
McCrary is the third Alabama player to sign with the program this week, following senior guard Justin Jackson and guard Josh Morgan.
