"I haven't committed to Alabama officially yet," said Byron Walton. "I told Coach Ball that I wanted to bring my mother there and show her around before I made an official commitment. I think I'll go over with my mom when schools starts; it might be the first week of August or the last week of July. I'm not to sure about that. "
While Walton hasn't made an official commitment, he left little doubt that it is
only a matter of time before he chooses the Crimson Tide.
"It's just a home feeling. I felt like it as a good place to be. I felt
like I have everything going for me over there. I'm near my family; I just felt
like I was at home when I was there."
Walton is being recruited at defensive tackle for Alabama. At 6-3 and 300
pounds, Walton posted a 29.5 inch vertical jump at a recent camp. He had a
productive junior season despite missing several games with a hamstring pull and
a sprained ankle. He piled up 50+ tackles and finished the regulars season
Quality big men are always at a premium, and Alabama is on the verge of getting
a good one.
