Alabama steamrolled Arkansas on Saturday and also had a strong week on the recruiting trail. The Crimson Tide picked up a commitment and made another recruit’s top six.
- Defensive end Jordan Davis reaffirmed his commitment to Alabama on Saturday. Davis was originally a member of the Crimson Tide’s 2018 recruiting class but ended up playing for Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Mississippi this season. The 6-foot-5, 238-pound player was ranked as the No. 6 weak-side defensive end and No. 108 overall player coming out of high school. Davis will join Alabama’s 2020 recruiting class.
For One I would Like to Thank God for putting me in the situation I’m in. This commitment will have a lot of people thinking different. But I’ve been talking too God and I have something to Prove. So I would like too announce that I’m “Re-Committing to university of Alabama 🐘” pic.twitter.com/VRZ2jRIKtV
