The Alabama Crimson Tide are not yet finished with the 2024 recruiting class. The Tide added one more high-level player to a class that already featured three of the best recruits in the country.

Labaron Philon, a top-35 recruit in the 2024 recruiting class, was previously signed with Bill Self and the Kansas Jayhawks. Philon is from Mobile, originally playing high school basketball at Baker High School. He now plays at Link Academy in Branson, Missouri. Philon asked to be released from his letter of intent to the Jayhawks in early April.

Alabama was expected to be heavily involved in the re-recruitment of Philon, and Crimson Tide fans did not have to wait long for an update. Philon has officially committed to Alabama and Nate Oats after being released from his letter of intent at Kansas according to On3 Sports and Joe Tipton.

Philon is a four-star recruit ranked in the top 35 according to composite. He is the No. 3 overall point guard and the No. 2 overall player in the state of Missouri.

The six-foot-four, 177-pound point guard won the AHSAA Class 7A Player of the Year.

Philon visited Alabama earlier in the weekend. According to MaxPreps, Philon averaged 25.6 points per game, 3.0 assists per game, and 5.2 rebounds per game.
