Alabama Lands In-State Lineman

John Michael Boswell, from Northport-Tuscaloosa County, (Ala.), ended his recruitment Saturday afternoon when he gave his commitment to the University of Alabama. Boswell talks about his commitment after the A-Day game.

"I committed to Alabama right after the game," said John Michael Boswell from Northport, (Ala.). "I told coach [Joe] Pendry about my decision. We then went and told coach [Nick] Saban."

"They were very excited when I told them about my decision. They were very happy."

The 6-6, 300-pound lineman continued, "I talked to my family about it, and I knew it was where I wanted to go. I have known for a while. I was ready to go ahead and get my decision over."

"I am through with all my visits. I am solidly committed to Alabama."

Alabama's A-Day attendance brought in a national record of over 92,182 fans.

"It was great," he said. "They had over 92,000 fans there. It was amazing. I was really impressed."

Boswell chose Alabama over scholarship offers from Ole Miss, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt and Clemson.
