Miss. WR Bowie is 'Bama bound

Alabama's big camp event has its first verbal commitment. On Monday, class of 2017 wide receiver D.D. Bowie jumped on a confirmed offer to play at Alabama following a standout performance.

"I committed to Alabama," D.D. Bowie told BamaMag.com Monday.

The soft-spoken wide receiver out of Morton (Miss.) High had offers from Ole Miss, Mississippi State, LSU, Auburn, Georgia and others before deciding the Crimson Tide was the right fit.

The workout, as part of Alabama's second day of prospect camp sessions, confirmed the verbal offer UA extended his way earlier in the cycle.

"Nick Saban asked me if I really wanted to commit, and I said, 'yes sir,'" Bowie said. "He told me to make sure I did well at school and that I gave my best on the field today.

"They (Alabama) gave me the full offer today. Coach (Bo) Davis told me I had the offer. I got it with my routes and with my 40."

Adding that the time was right at 4.4 seconds while in Tuscaloosa, Bowie said the decision was of the spur of the moment variety despite familiarity with the Crimson Tide program.

"I just feel comfortable here," he said.

Bowie is Alabama's second class of 2017 commitment and the first since five-star running back Najee Harris broke the ice on A-Day, April 18.
