The No. 1 football recruit in the class of 2021 will visit Alabama in late June.

Alabama is the final program defensive end J.T. Tuimoloau visits before making his college choice  when he comes to Tuscaloosa on June 25, 247Sports reported Friday.

The 6-foot-4, 277-pound Tuimoloau skipped the traditional December and February signing days because he wanted to take official visits to his top five schools.

"Just getting to talk to coach (Nick) Saban and coach (Freddie) Roach, and the culture that Bama has, its always been up there," Tuimoloau told 247Sports. "Getting to talk with coach Saban more, talking with him frequently, he has a history, and I like what he’s doing and is continuing to do."

Tuimoloau, who played at Eastside Catholic in Sammamish, Washington, will first visit Washington, USC, Ohio State and Oregon. Tuimoloau is expected to make a decision during the last week of June or first week of July, according to  247Sports.

Alabama has the No. 1 ranked 2021 recruiting class, edging out Ohio State, LSU, Georgia and Clemson in the top five.
