Tadarian “TD” Moultry said he’s done with interviews until he makes his commitment to his school of choice, which he says will happen some time this spring.
But the one word he answered with to whether or not Alabama is back in the mix for his services should be encouraging for the Crimson Tide.
“Yes!” Moultry said.
If you remember, Moultry, the four-star linebacker from Jackson-Olin High School (Birmingham, Ala.), told SEC Country a few weeks ago that he eliminated Alabama from contention because of his lack of a relationship with the staff.
“I don’t have that bond with my assistant coach, so, there is no need to keep playing with a school’s head,” Moultry said at the time. “I don’t have a bond with the (assistant) coach, so there’s no need for me to be talking to the school.”
He did say that what Alabama has to offer for “life after football” is the main reason why the Crimson Tide is now back in the mix after his visit to Tuscaloosa for Saturday’s A-Day game.
It looked like it was going to be an in-state battle for Moultry’s services, but Georgia, LSU and Ole Miss are in the mix, too.
Of note, Moultry and three-star linebacker Kenney Britt, who is from Oxford, Ala., have said that they are a package deal. Britt, who recently announced a top 10, did not include Alabama on his list and named Georgia his leader. Package deals in recruiting hardly ever come to fruition, though.
At 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds, Moultry is rated the No. 9 inside linebacker in the country and the No. 12 prospect in Alabama.
