Hagin headed to Tuscaloosa

BamaMag.com reported that Trent Hagin met with the Alabama coaching staff earlier this week, with it being a success, and now the 2014 quarterback has decided to accept a preferred walk-on offer from the program.

Per his father, Trent Hagin is Alabama bound.

The former Chelsea (Ala.) High dual threat quarterback standout, now 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, has accepted a preferred walk-on opportunity with Nick Saban's program.

Hagin and his parents traveled to Tuscaloosa earlier in the week to meet with the staff, mainly assistant Tyler Siskey, to go over the basic principles of how the process works.

The senior is expected to study engineering once at Alabama, one of the many reasons he picked the Crimson Tide over other schools offering a similar role like UCF and Washington. Ohio State showed some interest, too. UA is the only school he applied to during the process.

Hagin and his family are longtime Crimson Tide fans, and the move is one that his father is still yet to gauge.

"It's truly unbelievable," he said. "It's a good move for Trent and the whole family."

Most of the class of 2014 signees will report to Tuscaloosa to begin their college career on and off the field in July, and Hagin is expected to be among that group.

"I've always loved 'Bama," Hagin said.
