Alabama basketball manager Charlie Wilson has died, the program announced Wednesday. He was 20.

On Monday afternoon, he died from a fall during a seizure, something he has dealt with throughout his life, his father, Charles Wilson said.

“Unfortunately, he was by himself and we couldn’t get to him in time,” his father said. “It was his time to go be a manager for the Lord.”

Crimson Tide coach Nate Oats, in Miramar Beach, Florida, for the SEC spring meetings, praised Wilson, who became a manager for UA this past season.

“He brought a ton of energy to the program,” Oats said. “He worked really hard. He was in it to serve the players and make the program better.”
