Dakota Ball talks official visit
"The visit to Alabama was great," said Dakota Ball. "It was a lot of fun. The best part of my visit was getting to know all the coaches a little bit better. I now have a better relationship with all of them."
Ball was hosted by a couple of players who are future teammates and enjoyed getting acquainted.
"On Friday night I hung out with a few football players," he said. "My hosts were Brian Vogler and Chad Lindsey. It was my first time hanging out with them. It was a lot of fun."
Ball spent time Saturday touring the campus, meeting with academic advisors and the coaching staff. Ball hasn't decided on a major.
The Georgia native had one-on-one time with head coach Nick Saban and his position coach.
"I spent time with coach Saban on Saturday," said Ball. "He was just telling me he was glad I am coming here. He asked me what position I want to play. I told him anywhere on the defensive line. He didn't really say where he would like for me to play.
"I spent time with coach Rumph today. My parents were in there with us. We didn't really talk too much about football. It was just small talk. He was saying they didn't know where they are going to start me out at yet."
The Crimson Tide has a re-match with LSU in the BCS National Championship game January 9th.
"I was excited of course," Ball said when he learned the news of two teams playing again. "I am anxious to see it. If they don't make any mistakes they will beat them. I think they deserve it. They just can't make mistakes like last time."
Ball will remain in high school and graduate with his class in May, He will arrive on Alabama's campus in June.
