"I chose Alabama because I felt that not only the entire campus, but the entire state of Alabama revolved around Alabama football," Stadler said. "I didn't get that feeling anywhere else."
"It was a little difficult to tell everyone I was going all the way to Alabama to play football. I am the one who has to live with it. I wanted to make the best decision for me, and Alabama was the best fit. My parents fully support me."
