Tide Reels In DB

The Crimson Tide landed a defensive back from Hoover (Ala.) High School earlier today.

Cory Reamer is a 6'3", 190 lb., corner for one of the top football programs in the country. The Hoover High School standout made a verbal comittment to Alabama today.

"Yes, I have commited to Alabama. I was talking with Coach Ball and Coach Harbison on the phone and they offered me a scholarship. I committed as soon as they offered me," said Reamer.

Reamer had several reasons for comitting to Alabama.

"I felt like I needed to go ahead and committ. I think they are going to be the best team to offer me a scholarship. I love the tradition and everything about Alabama."

The coaching staff has made a strong impression on Reamer.

"I love Coach Ball and Coach Harbison. I think it is going to be a great opportunity to play under Coach Ball. I really like Coach Shula. He is a great coach."

Several other schools had made official offers to Reamer.

"I had received offers from Georgia Tech, Southern Miss, Vanderbilt, and Louisville. I went to visit Georgia Tech this summer and I really liked it. I felt like Alabama was the better fit for me," said Reamer.

Reamer is excited about playing with former teammates, Curtis Dawson and John Parker Wilson.

"It is going to be really good to play with Curtis (Dawson), because we had played together for the past two seasons. I believe we will be able to communicate very well playing together again. I am also excited about playing with John Parker (Wilson) again. He is a great leader and a great quarterback."

Fall practice begins next Monday as Hoover tries to defend their state championship crown.

" We start next week. We go to Marion Military Institute on Wednesday for camp. We need that camp to help us get really good. It is going to help our younger guys get better, and our team get better. I believe we are going to have another good year. We have a lot of leadership. We want to win. We don't have the big name guys like we did last year. We have a lot of players that are going to step up. I think we will be contenders for the state championship again this year," said Reamer.

As a junior Reamer recorded 65 tackles, 4 Interceptions and 10 pass break-ups.
