The defensive end from Eufaula High School, who was an early commitment to the University of Alabama in June prior to his senior season, said he will not be taking a recruiting visit to Auburn this weekend despite published reports that said he would.
"I am through with taking visits," said Upshaw, who took several unofficial visits to Auburn in the summer and fall after he committed to the Tide. "I am going to sign with Alabama."
Upshaw said he grew up an Alabama fan and that was the main factor in his decision. "I have always wanted to play there," he said.
