It’s been a busy month of recruiting for Alabama football.
It’s been a good month, too.
The Crimson Tide received three verbal commitments for the 2020 class, and even got a jump start on the 2021 class.
On Tuesday, Quandarrius Robinson (6-4, 217), a four-star linebacker from Jackson-Olin High School in Birmingham announced he plans to come to Alabama. He’s the No. 1 ranked linebacker in the state and the 53rd-ranked payer in the nation by 247Sports.
“Ya’ll know it’s been a long road with me and my family,” Robinson announced to his teammates via phone. “You know I’m just ready to commit now. I feel like I’m 100 percent sure – Roll Tide.”
It was in January when Robinson’s recruiting visit from Nick Saban made big news when the Crimson Tide head coach arrived at Jackson-Olin in a helicopter.
Some big news for Alabama came Monday when four-star cornerback Latrell McCutchin, from Austin, Texas, announced his commitment to the Crimson Tide’s 2021 class. Also, in-state linebacker prospect Demouy Kennedy (6-3, 205) of Theodore High School, announced his decision to attend Alabama as part of the 2020 class.

Kennedy, a four-start recruit, was the 20th commitment for the Crimson Tide’s 2020 class.
McCutchin (6-1, 176), an upcoming junior from Lyndon B. Johnson High School, is ranked No. 121 for the 2021 class by 247Sports.
The University of Texas was also in the mix, but McCutchin told CBSSports.com the Longhorns didn’t as good a job as the Crimson Tide to get his commitment.
“Alabama just recruited me harder,” McCutchin said. “With Texas, they have a really slow recruiting process. They told me things that they were going to do and then didn’t do them until after the fact that Alabama offered me and I started to blow up in my recruiting process and I really didn’t respect that too much.”
McCutchin made his announcement to attend Alabama on Monday via Twitter.

“As a child I always dreamt of playing football at the next level,” he wrote. “Now that things have fallen together, I have no one to thank more than the man upstairs. I would like to thank my mother and father for being there through the ups and downs, as well as guiding me to ensure that I stay on the right track.
“I am beyond blessed to have family and friends like I do, and you all should know that a child could never ask for a better support system. With that being said, I am BEYOND EXCITED to announce that I am Committing to the University of Alabama.”
Arizona, Arkansas, Baylor, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and others also extended offers to McCutchin.
Earlier this month Alabama snagged another player from the Lonestar State in 3-star offensive lineman Damieon George (6-6, 348) of North Shore High School in Houston.
“Would like to say thank you to all the colleges and coaches for recruiting me during the past couple of years,” George said via his Twitter account. “It has truly been a blessing and an amazing experience but at this time I would like to Announce that I will be Committing to the University of Alabama.”
Three-star tight end Cam Large (6-5, 240) of Dedham, Massachusetts, made a visit to Tuscaloosa this past weekend and announced his decision is narrowed to four schools – Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State and Wisconsin.
