Rosenthal Is Tide’s First In Class Of 2018

An intriguing aspect in the world of college football recruiting is that prospects are making commitments earlier and earlier. The latest example is Alabama making an offer and landing a commitment from an upcoming high school sophomore.

To be sure, Dare Rosenthal of Ferriday (La.) High School is not the typical ninth grader. He’s a 6-8, 288-pound lineman who plays both ways in high school but it likely headed for an offensive tackle spot in college.

His high school coach, Cleothis Cummings, confirmed Monday that Rosenthal had received an offer from Alabama and committed to Coach Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide.

Rosenthal has three more years of high school football before beginning his college career.

He is the first Alabama commitment in the Class of 2018.

Interestingly, the commitment by Rosenthal followed shortly after Alabama received a commitment from defensive back Joshua Perry, an upcoming senior defensive back from Amite, La.
