Devonta Bolton Talks Future Position

Devonta Bolton, Scout.com four-star receiver from Norcross, (Ga.), is a tremendous athlete who could play several positions at the next level. Bolton took an official visit to Alabama and learned where he will begin his career. He talks about the visit, future position and his current grade situation.



"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."
