Roll Tide or Tide Rolling? Take your pick on the recruiting trail because recruits are saying the former and Alabama is doing the latter with the class of 2012.
Their latest commitment comes from Ellenwood (Ga.) offensive tackle Brandon Greene, who made his verbal commitment Saturday afternoon at Alabama's Junior Day.
"I talked to Brandon today and he told me that is where he wanted to go and he made his commitment," Greene's high school coach Ray Bonner told BamaOnLine.com. "I don't think he wanted to fool around a lot with making a decision. He has visited Alabama before and fell in love with it, and today I think just put it over the top."
The 6-foot-6, 300 pound tackle did not play football last season and instead focused on basketball. He is expected to play football his senior year.
"He is a great athlete that wanted to play basketball before he figured out football is his calling," said Bonner. "There are plenty of 6-foot-6 kids playing basketball right now, but not a lot playing football. Basketball actually helped him with his footwork and losing weight. He had some bad weight before, and now it doesn't look like there is an ounce of fat on him.
Greene is the Tide's 10th commitment for the class of 2012 and first on the offensive line.
