This past weekend, Scout300 tight end Miller Forristall made his first visit to Alabama -- where he's been committed since June -- along with his mother and father. It was the trio's first visit to Tuscaloosa for a game day, but Forristall came away impressed.
“It was a fantastic experience, as far as the first game goes. It doesn’t really get any better," Forristall told Scout this week. "Tuscaloosa was ridiculous, and apparently, it’s like this every Saturday, but this was my first time there. The atmosphere was ridiculous, and I loved it.”
As much as Forristall seems fairly solid with the Crimson tide, California has made some inroads.
"I’m hearing from Cal-Berkeley a lot, and that’s where I’ll take my one other official this fall," Forristall said. “I think it’s Oct. 31, when they play USC.”
The four-star tight end out of Cartersville (Ga.) started his high school career as a quarterback, before making the switch to tight end, and now checks in at 6-foot-6, 210 pounds, very much in line with the types of athletes that Sonny Dykes and Tony Franklin currently have at the position.
“They're one of the first schools that really found me, as a tight end, and coach Dykes and coach Franklin, they're known for throwing the ball around, and they're on me all the time," said Forristall. "It's the No. 1 public school in the world, so, I want to go out there and see what they've got at Berkeley. That's one of the main reasons I want to head out there, see what it's all about."
Forristall has never been out to California, and said that "it'd take a good bit" to flip him from Alabama, where he will take an official visit on Nov. 7 for the game against LSU.
