Bama Adds Another Commit

Alabama added their second commitment from Mississippi on Sunday from Justin Woodall. three-star safety Justin Woodall took an official visit to Alabama this weekend. Woodall left Tuscaloosa a Crimson Tide verbal commitment.

The Mississippi star had several reasons for choosing the Crimson Tide.

"It's the place where I felt the most comfortable," said Justin Woodall from Oxford-Lafayette, Miss. "I have a great chance to play early, and the coaches are straight with me. I love the atmosphere as well."

"It feels real good right now to be committed to Alabama," Woodall added.

Several key highlights of the weekend's official visit lead Woodall to his decision.

"The academics and the facilities really impressed me a lot," Woodall said. "When I walked into the stadium it just really did something to me. It was a great feeling. I loved watching practice on Saturday. It was very face paced, intense and organized."

Woodall knew going into this weekend's visit that Alabama was one of the top schools on his list, but he didn't think he would leave Tuscaloosa as a commitment.

"I really didn't think I would commit," Woodall said. "I thought I would take all of my official visits before I made a decision, but things changed. I won't take anymore visits. I am a solid commit."

The Alabama players made Woodall feel a part of the team as he said, "My player host was Jeffrey[Dukes]. He is my cousin, and he was my teammate at my high school. It was great to hang out with him. We had a lot of fun together. We hung out with everyone. All the players were real nice, and I had a lot of fun with them."

The Alabama coaching staff knows the position Woodall will play for the Crimson Tide.

"They told me I will play safety," Woodall said. "It doesn't matter which position because they rotate both safeties all the time. I think I would fit in at the strong safety position."

The 6-1, 200 pound athlete chose the Crimson Tide over offers from Ole Miss, LSU, Tennessee and Mississippi State.
