Jalston Fowler visits Tide practice
"I went up to Alabama last Thursday night," said Jalston Fowler. "I stayed up there until Saturday. Everything went really good. I visited the campus and went to practice. I hung out with B.J. [Scott] and Julio [Jones]. It was real good to hang out with them."
"The practice went real good. They practiced good and worked. I was watching the running backs, and I sat in the running back meeting. That was really cool. I had a tough time understanding everything, but I know you have to get used to it."
Fowler spoke briefly with Alabama head coach Nick Saban.
"I talked to coach Saban before I left," Fowler said. "He was telling me I need to stay in shape and keep working hard. He is looking forward to me getting up there."
Fowler stands 6-feet, 247-pounds and hopes to shed a few pounds before arriving in Tuscaloosa in early 2010.
"The coaches have said they want me to lose a couple pounds," he explained. "They said they want my playing weight to be 230-pounds. I am really going to work on my footwork and my cuts."
