Alabama lands Mississippi star and top-10 cornerbck in the South Nigel Knott

Alabama landed another big piece to its final recruiting puzzle on Monday with the pledge of four-star cornerback Nigel Knott.

Birthdays are days one normally wouldn't forget, but few in SEC recruiting circles will soon forget what happened on Nigel Knott's birthday this year. 

The four-star Madison (Miss.) Germantown cornerback prospect committed to Alabama via a taped announcement on Bleacher/Report. 

"For the next three to four years I'll be attending the University of Alabama," he said on tape. 

Knott, who visited Alabama officially the weekend of January 22, becomes the Crimson Tide's first commitment at cornerback in the class of 2016. The move pushed Alabama to the No. 6 class nationally on Scout.
