"The visit went good," said Kourtnei Brown from Charlotte, (N.C.). "The best part about my visit was hanging around coach Saban. I really enjoyed going out to eat with him and his family."
"I really enjoyed my visit. On a scale from 1-10, I would rate my visit a 10. Hands down a 10."
Several things impressed Brown during his visit to Tuscaloosa.
"I liked a whole variety of things this weekend," he said. "First thing that caught my attention were the dormitories. They are right beside the academic center. I also liked the visit because of coach Saban. I really got to know him a lot as a person. He seems to be a great coach."
"The people in Tuscaloosa are very friendly as well. Overall I had a great time on my visit."
The four-star prospect was hosted by an Alabama redshirt freshman receiver as Brown continued, "Earl Alexander was my host. He is real cool. I was basically chilling out with all the other players at the hotel. We had a great time. I really enjoyed hanging out with Earl. I think he is a good person."
Brown was offered a scholarship last summer by the former Alabama football staff, and a bond was built with Mike Shula. Brown needed a chance to arrive in Tuscaloosa to meet the new regime.
"Alabama seems to have a good staff--a top staff. Coach Saban went and got who he wanted. He wants to make the program better and successful. I like what they have done, and I am looking forward to being coached by them," Brown said.
"Coach Saban said he was watching film, and he noticed how I could play standing up or down. He said he wants to use me like he did Jason Taylor. I would play on the line, and I could drop back in coverage. I would make it hard on the quarterback to read what I am going to do."
Brown was a top performer in Alabama's summer camp last June, and a lot more has changed on the Tuscaloosa campus other than the coaching staff.
"The stadium...my...my... my... it's huge. It's even better than when I went down there for the camp because I got to see it at night. It was just nice. I could imagine what it would feel like with 92,000 people there screaming. It's crazy. I went to the restaurants, and people were friendly. Tuscaloosa is a good place," Brown said.
The Alabama verbal pledge still plans to visit one more school before signing day and said, "I am visiting Clemson this weekend. I don't know from that point."
"My commitment to Alabama is a solid commitment. It's a firm commitment. I am going to Alabama."
Brown recorded an amazing 31 sacks, 70 solo tackles, four fumble recoveries and two blocked field goal attempts all during his senior campaign.
