Devonta Bolton Talks Future Position
"My visit to Alabama went great," said Devonta Bolton. "Chris Jordan and I hung out a lot. It was good to see him. I was telling him the whole weekend he needed to commit to Alabama. I think I helped influence him."
"I like how everything at Alabama was like family. It was just great. Everything at Alabama has a purpose."
Alabama freshman Brandon Gibson hosted Bolton during the visit. The two will spend more time together at the Capstone.
"I spent a lot of time with the coaches. I was with coach [Kirby] Smart and the offensive coordinator [Major Applewhite]. I was really with everybody. They told me if I work hard I could have a big impact at Alabama. They want me to start out playing slot receiver."
The 6-foot-4, 215-pound commitment is working to improve his grades and will re-take the ACT.
"I really don't know yet when I am coming in. I don't know if it's June or July. I plan to come when all the other freshman come in," Bolton said.
"Right now I have all Bs this year. I don't remember what I made on my last ACT test. I do plan on taking it again."
Alabama is sitting with the third best recruiting class in the country, and a couple of elite commitments by signing day could help boost their ratings even higher.
"Our class is real deep," Bolton said. "We have a lot of potential. If we can live up to the potential and work hard then nothing can go wrong."
