Darren Lake talks other recruiters
"I have been down to Tuscaloosa a few times this year," said Darren Lake. "The visits have been nice. I love it up there. I always talk to the coaches. They always tell me how they want me there and stuff like that.
"The team is really good. They have a good defensive line and secondary. They also have a good offense. I love watching Dont'a Hightower, Trent Richardson and Dre Kirkpatrick."
The 6-foot-3, 325-pound prospect was recruited as a nose tackle for Alabama by offensive coordinator Jim Mc Elwain.
"I feel a whole lot better than I did last year," Lake said. "I feel great. I feel like I am a lot quicker. I still have a whole lot I need to work on. The main thing is my quickness."
The Volunteers continue to recruit Lake, but another SEC school is working to get in the mix.
"Auburn is really starting to recruit me a lot," Lake said. "Tennessee is sending me mail. I don't think Auburn has offered, but they keep telling me they want me. They are telling me they need some interior guys. They are trying to tell me Alabama has five defensive tackles.
"I don't know right now if I will take any visits. If I do they will be official visits. I feel very good about my commitment to Alabama though."
