"The visit to Alabama went pretty good," said National Hot 100 defensive end Sidell Corley from Mobile, (Ala.). "Alabama's academics are getting a lot better. I feel like I will have the opportunity to play early if I went there. They only signed one defensive lineman in last year's recruiting class."
"My overall thoughts about Alabama is there is playing time available for me. There is a good chance I can get on the field early, and I feel like I would fit in with their defense."
Corley spent time with the position coach and his area recruiting coach. This in case they are the same coach.
"Coach [Buddy] Wyatt talked to me a lot about how he needed me," Corley said. "He told me to go ahead and dress out. Coach Wyatt is a down to earth guy. He has done a really good job recruiting in my area."
The 6-4, 250-pound defensive end was impressed with Alabama's head coach as he shared, "Coach Shula is a people's person. I feel like I can talk to him all day long. I think he is a really good guy."
When asked if he had a top five schools, "Right now my top five are Alabama, Florida, Ole Miss, Notre Dame and LSU. Notre Dame and LSU are the only two who have not offered me a scholarship. Everyone is equal."
Corley does not plan to attend any summer camps, but he will take several unofficial visits.
Corley will return to Tuscaloosa April 29 for the Scout.com All-American Combine.
