A stellar athlete, Devonta Bolton made an impact at a variety of positions at Norcross High. His prowess on the gridiron led to a four-star ranking and the distinction of being the nation's 16th-ranked weakside linebacker for the 2008 class.
Recruitment: Bolton has his choosing from every one of the top programs in the southeast. But in the end, he chose Alabama in early August of 2007.
At Alabama: Despite being ranked as a linebacker, Bolton will begin his collegiate career in Tuscaloosa, Ala. at the slot receiver position. "I spent a lot of time with the coaches. I was with coach [Kirby] Smart and the offensive coordinator [Major Applewhite]," Bolton said in a recent interview. "I was really with everybody. They told me if I work hard I could have a big impact at Alabama. They want me to start out playing slot receiver." Bolton came in with class of receivers that was arguably the best in the country so competition will be fierce. He is joined right off the bat with the Crimson Tide with former five-star recruit Julio Jones as well as a few more highly regarded pass-catchers.
