Scout300 DE Khalid Kareem picks 'Bama

Alabama has a national recruiting base and it was again evident on Wednesday as Nick Saban and company landed Michigan native and Scout300 defensive end Khalid Kareem.

Alabama has added another blue chip defender to its 2016 commitment list.

Scout300 prospect and Farmington Hills (Mich.) Harrison High prospect Khalid Kareem announced his commitment to the University of Alabama on Wednesday.

Kareem and his family visited Tuscaloosa for A-Day on April 18 and again earlier this month during the Crimson Tide's OL/DL camp on June 13.

“He (Khalid) liked Alabama a whole lot,” Ken Kareem, his father, said after their A-Day visit. “He could definitely see himself playing there. He likes the facilities and he likes that position (JACK). We got a chance to see it live, they told us a few guys to keep an eye on since it was the position he would be playing. It’s basically a hybrid D-end. Either way, you’re coming off the edge as a pass-rusher, so we bought in.

“Alabama, he can definitely play there. There aren’t too many schools I don’t think he can play at, but he’s big and versatile enough to play the position, that JACK position.”

BamaMag.com and Scout.com will have much more on this breaking news.
