On Wednesday afternoon, Alabama Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban did it again.
The nation’s #1 player, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings (A system in which the website combines and averages out the rankings of several popular website dedicated to recruiting), has committed to the Tide.
Offensive lineman Cameron Robinson, out of in West Monroe High School in West Monroe, Lousiana, chose the tide over the LSU Tigers on Wednesday. He made the announcement during EPSNU’s College Football Daily.
The 6’5, 330 lber. is the second West Monroe native to select the Tide over the Tigers. Cameron Sims, out of Ouachita Parish High School in West Monroe, committed to the Tide on August 24. Sims, a 6’3, 199 lb. wide receiver also committed on television and called for Robinson to join him at Alabama immediately after announcing his decision. Sims is ranked 88th in 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
Alabama has quite the reputation for landing – and developing – big time offensive line prospects. From Andre Smith of the Cincinnati Bengals to Chance Warmack and D.J. Fluker, who were selected with the 10th (Tennessee Titans) and 11th (San Diego Chargers) picks in the this year’s draft, to current Alabama tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, who was considered by many to be the top offensive lineman prospect in the class of 2011, the Tide produce studs.
Of course, all commitments are verbal and nothing is official until they sign and fax in their paperwork.
