Kent Taylor names fourThe four-star tight end from Land O'Lakes, Fla. named his top four schools this week which included Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Penn State as his leader. He will take an official visit to Penn State September 10 when the Nittany Lions host Alabama. He plans to take an official visit to Alabama November 5th when LSU is in Tuscaloosa. Taylor took a recent visit to the Capstone as his first-ever trip.
"Alabama has a lot to offer, and I loved it there," Taylor told Scout.com. "Their stadium and locker room are unbelievable, and their facilities are unreal. They have so much tradition there, and I like that a lot. I got to meet Nick Saban, and our time together was real good. He let me know they want me there, and that they look to develop there players into men."
Five-star trims list to sixAlabama made the next cut for Kwon Alexander, five-star linebacker from Oxford, Ala. The Crimson Tide joins Auburn, Florida State, LSU, Miami and Oregon. Alexander has spent a lot of time in Tuscaloosa including two unofficial visits this summer. He will not make a decision until signing day.

He has a list which includes Alabama, Boston College, UConn, Georgia Tech, Kansas, Miami, Nebraska, Penn State, Rutgers, TCU and UCLA. Alabama is the only SEC team to make the list.
"Alabama is a great football program," Fuller told Scout.com. "The coaches there could develop me to go to the NFL if the opportunity is there for me."
