The Sexton situation appears to be linked to the FBI investigation into bribery in college basketball. Former Alabama basketball administrator Kobie Baker resigned in late September after admitting he was implicated in the investigation. Via BamaHammer.com: “The FBI probe of college basketball that caused the exit from Alabama of men’s basketball administrator, Kobie Baker, also touched the Collin Sexton family. Baker arranged a meeting that Collin’s father attended to be introduced to potential future financial advisors for the Sexton family. Allegedly, Baker was paid $10,000 dollars to set up such connections. Unlike player families from other schools, to date, there is no public evidence the Sexton family received any money.” Alabama is ranked No. 25 in the USA Today Coaches’ Poll and is the first team outside the rankings in the AP poll. Sexton is projected as the No. 8 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft via ESPN.com. Alabama opens the season Friday night against Memphis in the Veterans Classic in Annapolis, Md.
