Despite offers from multiple NCAA football programs, Perry (Ga.) Westfield athlete Giles Amos had long felt he was an FBS talent. He stayed the course with that thought until he learned of some big news while at Alabama on Friday.
"I got the preferred walk-on and committed on the spot," he said. "I loved the place, it was super nice and beautiful. The campus is really close together, which is really cool, too. I start in late May, I can't wait."
Checking in at 6-foot-4, 218 pounds, the Peach State senior prospect can do many things on the football field.
"They pulled me aside after practice and told me to meet them up in the office and they explained it all," Amos said. "They mentioned how I can punt and also play tight end, so they like my versatility.
"It's a dream come true, I'm very blessed by the grace of God and look forward to making the most of this opportunity and showcasing my God-given abilities."
Already accepted into the university, the Amos family had already discussed him being apart of the UA football equation before they accompanied him on the unofficial visit, also the initial day of spring practice.
"My family is very excited and loved the place as well," he said.
Amos had been considering similar options at Auburn and Georgia.
