The Under Armour All America High School Football game was played tonight and Landon Collins, the top rated Safety in the land, was set to make his decision public as to where he would spend his college football career. Even though he is from the state of Louisiana, and despite the fact that his mama made it known that she didn't approve, Landon said he had two words for everyone: Roll Tide.
Damn right, Landon
This is a truly huge get for Alabama. This guy is a stud, an almost can't miss instant star. People are comparing him to Eric Berry, as far as the immediate impact he could make and the ability he has. In the game tonight, he had a huge INT and played very well all around
And to take him right out of LSU's back yard is always awesome. They are the number one team in the country, have already beaten us this year, and we have taken two of the top recruits from their state, including Denzel Devall.
Before Landon committed though, we already had cause for excitement as one of the top 5 WR's in the country, or one of the top 5 CB's (Whichever position he ends up playing), Cyrus Jones, announced that he would be coming to Tuscaloosa.
These are two of our biggest commitments of the year, both on the same night
Another guy who stood out in the game was WR Amari Cooper from Miami, who will also be a future Bama player. He had a 92 yard kick return for a TD, plus a few great catches also
The future is bright, and it just keeps getting brighter
