If you will recall from an earlier article, I listed Square as one of the top recruits we were going after, and though he was a bit of a long shot, he was a possibility with Saban.
As it turns out, we've reeled in the long shot.
Square chose Alabama over the likes of Texas A&M, Miami, Florida, and others. We are recruiting him as a defensive lineman, and according to him, Saban and company told he that he was our number one defensive tackle recruit. Considering he has quickly jumped up from 230 pounds to 270 pounds, he should have no trouble putting on the added weight to move inside. Even so, if he cannot do that, given his athleticism, he could play defensive end at that size and be very effective.
Originally a Texas A&M commitment, Square had this to say to Scout.com's Andrew Bone:
“I will only visit Alabama. I won’t take any other visit. I love Alabama’s recruiting class. I can see the athletes in this class, and that’s why I can see a national championship coming soon."The Crimson Recruiting Boom continues, and a top-five recruiting class seems closer than ever.
