Four-star tight end and Alabama commitment Brendan Scales recaps his official visit weekend in Tuscaloosa

Four-star Alabama tight end commitment Brendan Scales recaps his weekend official visit in Tuscaloosa.

Plenty of things excited four-star tight end prospect Brendan Scales on his official visit to Alabama, where he committed nearly one year ago.

"For one, I had a really good host in Hale Hentges," he said. "He did well and so did Miller Forristall, he’s a mid-year guy from Atlanta."

The trio of tight ends talked plenty about last Monday's national championship victory and the breakout effort from junior tight end O.J. Howard, who announced Monday he'll return to Alabama for his senior season. There's a certain buzz when discussing the position.

"Confidence," Scales said. "Confidence in knowing (Nick) Saban has no problem utilizing the tight end. Sometimes certain colleges and people ask you if ‘Bama uses the tight end because they always have great running backs, great receivers, and you say, ‘am I going to be under-used?’ But watching O.J. do what he did and coach using him the way he does, gives me, Hale and Miller confidence knowing they’re going to get the ball and make an impact on the team.

"They’re not selfish guys saying, ‘give me the ball,’ but it builds confidence knowing we can contribute on the team and win championships -- which we will do."

The glow of the fourth championship in seven years remained days later, something that took back the four-star.

"Being there, everyone was just so happy," Scales said. "Today (Sunday), my driver said...this is one of the greatest things I’ve heard. He said, ‘whether you’re apart of the team or not, being in Tuscaloosa, everyone in the town feels like a winner no matter what.’ That’s just incredible.  

"Being there is always nice, but this time I got so much more. I was able to talk to one fo the professors, and seeing where I’ll be staying and seeing the depths of the campus really showed me really where I’m going to be. It was just exciting and real since signing day is close. There’s a million other things I can talk about but it was the people I was around, and my family was there, that made it special for sure."

 Saban made it a point to make Scales' parents feel just as comfortable in Tuscaloosa.

"In the office with him he talked about the relationships with people, coming in ready to go with size and conditioning," he said. "He was talking to my family and reminding them that I’m at the best place in the country, which they believe. Also that I’m going to be okay no matter what and that they’re going to take care of me. He gave my parents that sense of security knowing I’m going to be at a great place."

In between coaches, professors and campus tours, Scales was able to spend time with several fellow UA commitments.

"It was great. We got there and we were seeing everything together, especially Kendell (Jones) and Quinnen (William), those are the guys I saw a lot," he said. "Being around them and knowing we’re coming here and it’s real for us, it’s a dream come true. This is a dream for so many people, but with the work we put in and our great families and parents, it came true. We really just felt so blessed throughout the whole weekend. We all felt like we can do it. We can do the same thing they just did."

Von Scales, Brendan's father, took a picture that went semi-viral Saturday featuring Scales and the aforementioned Jones. 

 "Oh my God, I looked like a little toddler,” he said with a laugh. “When we took a picture he put his arm around me and I’ve never felt so small in my life. His forearm is like the size of my shoulder to shoulder, he’s just so big."

Scales intends on signing with Alabama on February 3 but he may take an official visit to Missouri in the coming weeks.
