This might come as a complete shock, but Alabama got another potential superstar on Thursday evening. Jeremiah Alexander, a five-star edge rusher from Thompson High School in Alabaster, Alabama, announced his commitment to the Crimson Tide over national title rival Clemson. It isn't the first time that Alexander has had his eyes on Tuscaloosa. He was originally committed to the Crimson Tide last year but de-committed on Oct. 27, 2020.
"Our relationship never fell out about me de-committing," Alexander said earlier this year according to 247Sports. "It was just about me wanting to focus on my high school career and stuff like that. It's at home. And Bama, they're gonna put you in the league and they're gonna win championships. You can't go wrong with that."
His commitment is enormous for Nick Saban's program. The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder is ranked No. 16 overall and is the top-ranked edge threat in the Class of 2022. He had 309 tackles and and 24 sacks in three years as a high school player, including 116 tackles and nine sacks as a senior.
