For the second time in three days, Alabama landed a commitment from one of Georgia’s top prospects. Wide receiver Ronald Carswell of Macon committed to the Crimson Tide on Tuesday, according to Scout.
“It’s Alabama,” Carswell told the website. “They are the biggest team in Alabama. They don’t have a pro team. It’s all about the Crimson Tide.”
Carswell picked Alabama over East Carolina, and had emerging interest from Florida, Clemson, and many other schools. Carswell will be joined at Alabama by one of the state’s top quarterbacks.
Gainesville quarterback Blake Sims made the surprising decision to commit to the Crimson Tide on Saturday after meeting with coach Nick Saban. Sims had offers from around 10 schools, including Michigan and Georgia, before quickly committing to Alabama, which had offered only two days earlier. Sims said on Tuesday that he will remain loyal to Saban.
