Alabama DL Picks the Tide

Byron Walton had been leaning to Alabama for some time. Tuesday night, he made a commitment.

"I called Coach Ball about 30 minutes ago and committed." said Byron Walton. "All of the coaches were in a meeting, so I got to talk with Coach Shula and all of them. They said they were very excited."

Walton had a good idea for a long time about where he would end up.

"I always wanted to go to Alabama. I've always kind of known in the back of my mind that I wanted to go to Alabama, and I feel real comfortable with my decision."

For what position is he being recruited?

"Alabama has only talked to me about playing defensive tackle. I'm not going to take any other official visits. That's it for me. I believe Alabama is headed in the right direction, and the future is bright."
