Alabama cornerback commit Jalyn Armour-Davis wasn’t planning on signing early because his school didn’t allow early graduates, and he was planning on taking visits elsewhere in January.
Those visits won’t happen anymore.
Armour-Davis, a 4-star prospect from St. Paul’s Episcopal (Mobile, Ala.), will now sign during the early signing period, according to Ben Thomas of AL.com.
“I’m glad he’s going to go ahead and sign,” St. Paul’s head coach Steve Mask told Thomas. “If you know where you are going to go, I think you should go ahead and do it. I’m not a big fan of committing to school and then continuing to take a lot of visits. If you are engaged to someone, you are not going to be dating other people. The word committed should mean something.”
The nation’s No. 15 cornerback was one of the Tide’s prized commitments early on in this recruiting class. He originally didn’t have Alabama in his top 6 schools, but the Crimson Tide, led by primary recruiter Jeremy Pruitt and defensive backs coach Derrick Ansley, helped Alabama get back in the mix for him and eventually land his commitment.
Since he chose the Tide, Armour-Davis hasn’t visited any other schools and hasn’t wavered once on his decision. Armour-Davis will enroll at Alabama next summer.
