About Collin Sexton
Collin Sexton is an athletic point guard with a competitive streak and great scoring instincts who finished the season playing at a high level. An extremely productive scorer at the prep level, Sexton was comfortably the top scorer for the US team that took gold at the 2016 FIBA U17 World Championship that featured no fewer than six likely 2018 NBA Draft picks. A consensus top-8 recruit in the high school class of 2017, Sexton opted to spend his single season at the collegiate level under Avery Johnson at Alabama and led the Crimson Tide to an NCAA Tournament berth averaging 19.2 points and 3.6 assists per game while earning SEC Freshman of the Year honors.

- Measured 6’1.5 in shoes with a 183-pound frame and 6’7.25 wingspan at the 2018 NBA Draft Combine. Combines his impressive wingspan with excellent all-around athleticism. Quickness is a plus on both ends of the floor.
- Played a significant role as a true freshman at Alabama finishing the season as the team’s leading scorer and lifting them to much of their late season success. Score-first guard who did much of his damage getting downhill out of pick and roll and one-on-one situations or pushing the tempo on the fast break. Has some impressive moments as a passer throwing lob passes and finding the open man driving and dishing, but was not particularly prolific as a playmaker.
- Promising defender. Length, quickness, and motor make him very effective guarding on the ball and allow him to chip in on the glass. Likes to dig in and be physical despite lacking great strength. Has room to improve as a defender off the ball, but will make some impressive plays closing out to cover for teammates.
