Tide Adds Another Commitment

<b>Sam Burnthall</b> is a 6-3 and 195 pound free safety that claims a forty time of 4.65. The Decatur High School product has made a commitment to play for the Crimson Tide.

"Yes, I committed to Alabama about twenty minutes ago," said Sam Burnthall. "I committed to Coach Ball and Coach Shula. I told them I was ready to commit. They said they were fired up and really excited."

Burnthall had several reasons for choosing the Tide.

"Since I was a little kid, I've always been an Alabama fan. There was nowhere else that I wanted to go. I feel like Alabama is going to get back to where they used to be. They had a great recruiting class last year, and I think they are going to have another great recruiting class this year."

Burnthall also discussed his commitment with teammate Jerraud Powers.

"Yeah, I told him that I was committing to Alabama, and he just smiled at me and asked me why I made the decision. I think it will influence him a little bit. Jerraud told me that if I committed to Alabama than I would commit too, but I don't know for sure."

Burnthall isn't planning on taking any other visits and will attend several Alabama games in the fall.

"Yeah, that's going to be it for me. I'm going to try and make all of the home games this year, and it will nice to get into the games for free," Burnthall added with a laugh.
