Will Take Alabama Visit

Ali Sharrief of North Jackson High School is considered one of the top athletes in the southeast. This summer, Sharrief announced his commitment to the Auburn Tigers, but he will still take an official visit to Alabama.

"I am going to take an official visit to Alabama. I probably will not go anywhere else for a visit. Right now, I am pretty solid with Auburn," said Ali Sharrief.

Sharrief has tripped to the Plains and came away impressed.

"I have been to two games this year. I went to the Auburn/LSU game and the Auburn/Louisiana Tech game. I really liked both of the games. They drilled Louisiana Tech, and I really liked the LSU game. I have really liked the way Auburn has been playing this year. Hopefully, I can go there and play running back next year."

"I am really trying to get down to an Alabama game. I will try to make the Alabama/Auburn game," said Sharrief.

A few coaches are staying in close contact with Sharrief.

"I talk to Coach Dunn (Auburn), Coach Ball (Alabama) and Coach Searels (LSU). Those three coaches call me just about every week."

North Jackson is having a great year. Sharrief is at full strength and focused on the season.

"It's alright. We are trying to get everything straight. We should have beaten Gadsden (#3 in 5A) a couple of weeks ago. We are 4A so we won't have a chance to play them again. We are 5-1. We are a pretty much balanced team on offense and defense. I think we will make it to the state championship. We won our region championship last week over West Point,41-28. We play at Ardmore this week," said Sharrief.
