rolltide.com We’ve got another big loss for Alabama coach Anthony Grant this offseason as Trevor Lacey declared today that he will transfer. This announcement comes after Lacey made comments that he would lead the Crimson Tide to the Final Four this next season after a disappointing 2012-2013 campaign. The two-time Alabama High School Mr. Basketball calls the move “a family decision to pursue other opportunities” but did not say where he will transfer to. This is the second starter from this season to announce a transfer this offseason after Moussa Gueye decided to leave the program two weeks ago. Lacey was the only Bama player to start all 36 games this season, averaging 11.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.2 assists a game while also leading the Crimson Tide in 3-pointers made with 62.  With the already lacking offense, the Crimson Tide will gain help from top recruits; Shannon Hale, a power forward from Johnson City, Tennessee, ranked 95 in the ESPN 100 and Jimmy Taylor, a much needed Center from Greensboro, Alabama, and ranked 71 in the ESPN 100.  While these newcomers will seemingly get significant playing time with Gueye and Lacey gone, we cant forget about Ricky Tarrant, who is transferring from Tulane but will have to sit this year out.
