Alabama women's basketball got a commitment from former NC State guard Jessica Timmons on Tuesday.

Timmons posted her commitment to the Crimson Tide on Twitter with the caption "New Beginnings, Roll Tide Wassup Baby."

Timmons played in 18 games in the 2022-23 season as as sophomore before sitting out with the intent to transfer. She averaged 3.1 points and 0.8 rebounds per game, in just under 10 minutes per game. Her career high was 10 points versus Quinnipiac in the season opener.

She was the No. 45 overall in the Class of 2021 by Collegiate Girls Basketball Report and the 16-ranked combo guard. She earned the 2020 AP All-State and was a 2021 McDonald's All-American Game Nominee.

The commitment comes on the same day that the Crimson Tide made the signing of forward Megan Newman from Arizona State. Timmons will join four-star recruit Reychel Douglas as a newcomer at guard. They will join Aaliyah Nye, Loyal McQueen, Karly Weathers, Sarah Ashlee Barker and Ryan Cobbins.

Alabama will see guards Brittany Davis, Hannah Barber and Megan Abrams along with center Jada Rice graduate this offseason. JaMuya Mingo-Young entered the transfer portal earlier this offseason.
