Following on the heels of Crimson Tide extending offers to Cleveland Glenville's Erick Smith, Marcelys Jones and Marshon Lattimore, Alabama has now offered Toledo Central Catholic quarterback DeShone Kizer.
"I'm very excited and humbled to say I was offered by the University of Alabama this morning by Coach (Nick) Saban," Kizer said in a text message.
Kizer, 6-foot-5, 200-pounds, is one of the top 2014 prospects in Ohio. A dual-threat quarterback, he is coming off a sparkling junior season in which he led Toledo Central Catholic to the Ohio Division-II state title.
Alabama is the second SEC team to offer Kizer in the past week, coming on the heels of LSU who offered last Thursday.
