Alabama football recruiting: 4-star WR Calvin Ridley commits to Crimson Tide

This isn’t even fair.

On Saturday, the Alabama Crimson Tide got a commitiment from 5-star cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick. They followed that by picking up a pledge from 4-star safety/wide receiver/athlete Shawn Burgess-Becker.

Now, they have received a commitment from 4-star wide receiver Calvin Ridley.

The 6’2, 170-pound Ridley is teammates with Burgess-Becker at Monarch High School in Pompano Beach, Florida.

Ridley announced his decision via his twitter account.


Ridley is ranked as the third-best wide receiver prospect in the country, the 10th-best overall prospect in the state of Florida and the 41st-best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

Ridley chose the Tide over a slew of other offers, including the rival Auburn Tigers, Clemson Tigers, Florida Gators, Georgia Bulldogs, Miami Hurricanes, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Ohio State Buckeyes, Oklahoma Sooners and Southern California Trojans, among others.

Ridley had 41 receptions for 1,131 yards and 12 touchdowns last season.
