"That's just where I want to go. I don't want to go anywhere else."
The Scout.com four-star called his recruiter of note, defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison, to let him know that a commitment was on the way.

The Tigers' head coach was pleased to receive the news.

Harbison, of course, was happy to hear the news, too.
"He sound more relieved than anything."
