Adrian Hubbard talks of decision

Adrian Hubbard, three-star defensive end from Norcross, Ga., had a big sophomore season as a starter at Peachtree Ridge. He transferred for his junior year and decided not to play football, but his senior year coaches found him as the star was rising on the gridiron. Coach Nick Saban found him as well, and that's the offer which will win his signature.

"It feels really good to be committed to Alabama," said Adrian Hubbard. "I feel really good about my decision. When I took my visit I just felt really good. They made me feel at home. Another big factor was they have my major in Criminal Justice.

"I actually started thinking about Alabama last Friday. I kind of knew it was where I wanted to go, and then I took my visit. I met with coach Saban. I told him I wanted to commit, and he said he didn't have a problem with that. He was ready for me to be a part of the Crimson Tide.

"Alabama did recruit me for the ‘Jack' linebacker position. I really like it a lot. I think it's going to be a better fit for me. It gives me a chance to play outside linebacker and rush the quarterback. It gives me a variety of different looks.

"My official visit to Alabama overall was great. The town was still very excited about the win over Florida. It was crazy. Their defense stepped up and stopped Tebow.

"My host for the three days I was there was Dre [Kirkpatrick]. He was down-to-earth and real cool. He is pretty funny. Everything about my visit was great. I am now finished taking visits and just ready to get to Alabama."

Adrian Hubbard, 6-foot-7, 227-pounds, will graduate with his class in May.
