He is scheduled to enroll in college in January as an early high school graduate. Last Saturday at the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game he said that his commitment was solid to Auburn.
"Over the last few weeks, I've really put a lot of time and thought into where I want to go to school and continue my football career," he said in the statement. "I am blessed to be in a situation where I have several great opportunities and I appreciate everyone involved who has helped me get to this point.
I want to make an announcement so I can put this behind me and get to work on the things I need to do to prepare for college both athletically and academically. I am going to enroll at the University of Alabama in January.
"I have a lot of respect for Auburn, the coaches, and all of the people there, but at the end of the day I feel like the University of Alabama is the best situation and fit for me and my family. I am 100 percent confident with my final decision. I feel great about it and I'm excited to get started."
