Alabama freshman forward Noah Clowney was a key piece of the Tide’s 2022 recruiting class that was brought in. The South Carolina native was ranked as the No. 96 overall recruit in the country, according to 247Sports’ recruiting rankings.
He is listed at 6-foot-10, 205 pounds. Nate Oats and the rest of the coaching staff are expecting big things out of the freshman this season. On Thursday, he spoke with the media about some of his goals entering his first year of action in Tuscaloosa. Clowney responded by saying this:
“I don’t really have individual goals. Obviously, I want to play at the next level but I want to win games. I don’t think nobody like losing. I feel like everybody on the team that had a chance to feel what losing feel like in high school. I lost my last two years in state championships, so nobody likes to lose. You know you can change that every day at practice. You don’t win games when you go out there. You win games when you’re practicing in the summer and in the fall.”
After performing well in Alabama’s tour overseas as well as two exhibitions, Clowney is expected to be a crucial piece in the Tide’s frontcourt. His length and versatility can provide a challenge to opposing defenses. Not to mention, he can finish at the rim and produce on the offensive end. Nonetheless, his eagerness to win is something that should set the tone early in the locker room this season.
