Roll Tide!

Xzavier Dickson, four-star defensive end from Griffin, Ga., announced his college choice on ESPN at the Under Armour All-America game. He was the first high school player in their line-up to announce on the national broadcast.

Xzavier Dickson, 6-foot-4, 248-pounds, will leave his home-state school to play college football for the University of Alabama.

"I am going to Alabama," said Dickson. "I like Alabama's defense and their coaching staff. I like the way their defense conducts themselves and how they are disiplined.

"Alabama has told me I could play early and have a major impact on their team. I like how they play hard-nosed football. They have a great coaching staff and just know how to get after it every day."

Dickson becomes commitment No. 21 for the Tide.
