A post on Facebook by Visit Tuscaloosa said:

We Dat's Chicken & Shrimp is coming to The Strip (University Town Center)!
JaMychal Green, Bama basketball star from 2008-2012, is bringing Cajun-style chicken, shrimp & catfish and loaded sides to match. Roll Tide and stay tuned for more details!
We Dat's touts themselves as using the best ingredients and preparing them with love. The restaurant serves chicken, catfish, shrimp, wraps & drinks.
A new Tuscaloosa location for the Louisiana-based restaurant would strengthen ties to the businesses, as former Alabama basketball star Herb Jones seems to be familiar with We Dat's.
He is seen taking a picture with We Dat's owner Greg Tillery on Facebook.
 The Visit Tuscaloosa website mentioned that JaMychal Green will be at the helm of the new We Dat's location.
