Bama Hammer aka Ronald Evans does a good job with possible roster scenarios in this article.

FWIW, he has Nelson returning and Sears taking the second round draft option.

By his own admission, he's mainly guessing.

First round pick possibility for Sears according to one...guaranteed money

I've been told indirectly that Momma Sears wants her son to play one more year, preferring the guarantee of his NIL money to the unpredictability of the draft.
Something like this will be the key to a title run, some talented guys on the border of guaranteed money staying for guaranteed money in college

With the ancillary and somewhat fiduciary notion that Oats' offense enables a year-long NBA audition at 'Bama.

I guess I didn't know about his injury. I like the fact he's a freshman too.

I'm also really interested in how Kris Parker fits. I'm assuming he was redshirted to help him add some weight, but at 6'9" as a guard I'm very, very intrigued! Talk about versatile!

The ones I question the most about fitting in are: Big Mo, Pringle and Cosby, Jr.
Here's an older article that's discussed Mo D's previous injury and what he brings to the table. Notice if the definition sounds like a former player:

Parker hits the transfer portal. I should have put date AND time on my previous post :)

Sears will go.Wague and Cosby will probably go. That gets us to 11. Depending on Nelson that’s 10. So two more transfers possibly.

I think there are 13 scholarships allowed. Thats the reason Spears received a scholly last year because they didn’t use it.

I wish we could get a group of guys determined to bring the university a championship before bolting to the NBA or transferring for playing time. We could have really used guys like Bediako and Clowney this year with a season of experience under their belt.

Noah Clowney could not turn down first-round, life-changing money. Charles apparently could not receive NIL so who can blame him if he wanted to be paid … by someone.

I'm not convinced Sears is gone until it happens.

Would he really be better off in Europe or the G League?

I haven't heard anything about Cosby leaving. Do you mean the Draft or Transfer?

I think Nelson stays too but maybe I'm being overly optimistic.

For some reason I forgot Clowney went in the 1st, but he sure enough signed a 4 year 15 mil contract so no can’t blame him. I also didn’t know Bediako couldn’t get NIL so his departure finally makes sense for me. Thanks for clarifying

I wonder if Kris entered the portal to see what Sears is going to do?

Either way, I hope we can get him back in the fold. I watched some of his HS clips and he is legit
