Top international prospect Josh Primo has committed to Alabama and coach Nate Oats, he told ESPN on Friday.

"I am grateful to all of the schools that have recruited me during this process, however it is time to make a decision," said Primo, a 6-foot-5 Canadian guard with a 6-9 wingspan. "I'm excited to say that this fall, I will be attending the University of Alabama!! Roll Tide!!"

Primo, 17, emerged as one of top international prospects in his age group at the NBA's Basketball Without Borders Global Camp held in Chicago during All-Star weekend in February.
