Alabama still leads

Brendan Langley, four-star cornerback from Kell High School in Marietta, Ga., camped at Alabama on Monday after naming the Crimson Tide his favorite before arriving on campus. Langley talked in-depth about the trip to Tuscaloosa.

"I went to the camp on Monday," said Brendan Langley. "I participated in the camp. It went well. It was unreal being coached by Coach Saban; one of the best, if not the best coach in the country.

"It was great being able to learn the things I learned. It was good getting a good feel for the atmosphere. It's not a bad place to be for a defensive back. I felt like I did great. I obviously have some things to work on. I did well and took a lot from the camp, which was my main goal."

College camps have a lot to offer high school prospects and bonding with other players they see on the camp circuit.

"I'd say the best part of the trip was just getting coached by the coaches," Langley said. "It was great to be coached by them. I was able to learn more about them as coaches than recruiters.

"I didn't really meet anyone knew. I hung out Reuben Foster, Alvin Kamara, Ryan Jenkins and Shaun McGee. I saw him up there. It was a fun crowd to be around."

The 6-foot-1, 189-pound prospect met with the head coach who did not present any pressure about a decision.

"Coach Saban really just talked to me about the history of the program," Langley said. "I felt pressure from myself to commit. After being there how can you not want to be there. Everything stands out to me about Alabama, from the history of winning to the coaches. Everything there is all a big plus for me.

Players are usually high on a program after an official visit or unofficial visit. Camps can have the same effect.

"Alabama is my favorite," Langley said. "I wouldn't say the lead is by that much. I just like Alabama the most at the moment. I would like to make a decision before my senior season. I am taking it day-by-day, so don't be surprised if I commit tonight. I am just taking it day-by-day."

Langley is considering trips this summer to Clemson, Florida State, Florida, South Carolina and Georgia.
