Louisville commitment Cummins talks Bama camp

Alabama is hosting double-digit prospects committed to other programs this week and one of the first to get a workout in was in-state tight end Austin Cummins. The Louisville commitment details what a ‘Bama offer would mean to him inside.

Stevenson (Ala.) North Jackson tight end Austin Cummins arrived in Tuscaloosa on Sunday, poised to prepare for Monday’s camp session at his dream school.

The rising-senior remains a Louisville commitment, but Alabama is the school he wants to add an offer from the most.

“I had a great showing at camp today,” he said. “They took a lot of video and I got a lot of reps. Overall a great experience and I learned a lot. I spent a lot of time with (tight ends) coach (Bobby) Williams. And I met pretty much all the coaches on staff.”

Adding that the Crimson Tide is courting him strictly as a tight end prospect, especially considering he dropped nearly 20 pounds on his 6-foot-5 frame, Cummins expects to remain in contact with the in-state power going forward.

“They're going to take a look at the film they took today of me in action and definitely keep in touch with me,” he said. “An offer by ‘Bama would really be a dream come true. A childhood dream that really came to life. My family has always been die hard ‘Bama fans…it would be amazing.

“It was the best camp I've ever been to. And it's at the best school. Over all it's a great experience and great to have the opportunity.”

The rising-senior, who pledged to Bobby Petrino and the Cardinals in late March, will return to Louisville for another unofficial visit next weekend.
