"Actually, I talked to Coach Connelly, two nights ago. I told him I was ready to commit. Coach Shula called me last night, to verify it. They both were very excited about my commitment," said Glen Coffee.
There are a few reasons the three star running back decided to go ahead and make
his commitment to the University of Alabama.
"It kind of came all of a sudden. Alabama just has great tradition. They
have really good coaches and players. The running back situation played a big
part in my decision. My goal is to start as a freshman. I believe I can go to
Alabama and start next fall."
The Alabama coaching staff made a strong impression.
"Coach Shula is a really great guy. He is a good Christian man. He has a
lot of enthusiasm about the future of the Alabama football program. Coach
Connelly has been my recruiting coach. He is a real cool guy. He is just great.
He explained everything to me very well. I haven't had the opportunity to speak
with my position coach, Coach Sparky Woods that much. I have only talked with
him a few times. I think he is a great coach and I am excited about playing for
Coffee believes the Alabama football program is headed in the right direction.
"Next year, I feel like we are going to have a great year and win the SEC
title. They have a lot of guys on defense returning, and Brodie Croyle will be
back next year. I feel like we will have a very good run at the National
Championship next year," said Coffee.
Rushing over 1,800 yards and receiving for 350 yards, Coffee brings more to the
table than most running backs.
"I can make plays on special teams. I can catch, block, and run the ball. I
am very effective as both a running back and wide receiver. I can take the ball
inside or outside."
When asked about other visits, Coffee replied, "I am just going to visit
Alabama. My decision is final. I will not take any other visits. I set my visit
with Alabama, January 7-9. I am hoping to get to Tuscaloosa in June. It might be
July, but I am going to take summer classes."
Coffee is on track to qualify and has a score of 23 on the ACT.
