Alabama lands a commitment from local 2017 star and record breaker Brian Robinson

Alabama landed local record-breaking running back Brian Robinson Monday night, he announced.

Three's a crowd?
Alabama now has a trio of top running backs committed to its class of 2017 with the addition of local standout Brian Robinson, who announced his pledge Monday night via Twitter.
"I would like to announce that I'm officially committed to the University of Alabama. Roll Tide Roll #205," it read.
Robinson, who made waves this fall when breaking the state of Alabama's single-game rushing record against defending state champion Pinson (Ala.) Clay-Chalkville with more than 440 yards, has carried Tuscaloosa (Ala.) Hillcrest back into the state playoffs. During the middle of the seaosn, he added scholarship offers from many in the SEC, including Auburn, Georgia, Ole Miss and others. UA jumped in the mix for him shortly after -- on September 12 -- and has led for his commitment ever since (as seen in the above video).
Joining Chadarius Townsend among in-state snags to this point, UA now has eight verbal pledges in the class of 2017. Robinson, Najee Harris and Cam Akers make up the running back projections within the group.
