Alabama Adds DL Commitment

Antonio Forbes of Meadowcreek High School decided last weekend to commit to Alabama, but he didn't go public until tonight.

"I committed last weekend on my official visit," said Antonio Forbes, "but I wasn't officially committed, because I wanted to take one more visit just to make sure."

Alabama felt like the right fit for Forbes.

"I just came to my senses," Forbes said when asked why he made his commitment. "When I went on my other visits, it just wasn't me, but when I went to Alabama it felt like me. It felt like I was at home. The coaches, the players and the atmosphere was all that I was about."

The Alabama coaching staff was definitely a big part of the decision making process.

I built a personal relationship with Coach Harbison, Wyatt, Randolph, and Shula. They showed me so much hospitality and camaraderie. Coach Harbison is like a mentor to me."

Forbes leaves little doubt on where he will be spending his college days.

"I'm on track to be fully qualified, and I'm Crimson Tide for life."
