I know it doesn’t involve a high-profile recruit and the kid is totally on board with the move, but I have to say I’m a bit surprised Tide Nation isn’t all over this:
… the football team picked up a grayshirt commitment from Naples (FL) Barron Collier defensive lineman Brady Pallante. As a grayshirt commit, Pallante will pay his way through school during the 2014-15 scholastic year—during which time he cannot participate in team activities—before joining the team on full scholarship for the 2015 season. If it makes it easier, just consider him the first commitment for the 2015 class, and one who’ll get a head start on the academic side of things.
It’s all on the up and up, so I don’t have a problem with it. But then again, I’m not a fanatic on the subject.
