The Crimson Tide picked up a big recruit last week when Kendall Jones verbally committed to Alabama. A local sportswriter captured the commitment on video and tweeted it out.

Jones is ranked by Rivals as the #10 defensive tackle in the county. The four star prospect from Killeen, Texas had also received offers and had LSU, Texas, Baylor, Texas A&M in his top five before his annoucement. At 6’5 340 lbs. Jones earned the name “Hulk” and lives up to it on the field. At the Nike Opening Regional Dallas in March Jones turned heads after dominating everyone he lined up against. The following month he visited Tuscaloosa for the A-Day game and was very impressed.
Jones will play out his senior year if all goes as planned, sign his NLI in February to make things official.
