"I felt it was the place for me."

James Carpenter, four-star offensive tackle from Coffeyville Junior College in Kansas, enrolled at the Capstone in December.

Carpenter chose Alabama over Oklahoma, Ole Miss, Texas Tech and Iowa State.

James Carpenter is a great run and pass blocker. He spent a year and a half at the junior college level. He graduated in December and enrolled at Alabama.

Carpenter will challenge for immediate playing time. He will get a shot playing left tackle to start the season, but may eventually move to the inside to play guard.

"When I went to Alabama, I felt it was the place for me, but I wanted to take all of my visits to make sure," Carpenter said. "After taking all of my visits, I just did not get that feeling that I got while I was at Alabama."
