As expected, four-star offensive tackle Dare Rosenthal has de-committed from Alabama, he confirmed to SEC Country.
Rosenthal, an elite 2018 recruit, told SEC Country last weekend that he was “70 to 75 percent” committed to Alabama and was starting to lose interest in the Crimson Tide.
“I have more offers now and I’m starting to get better feelings about other schools,” Rosenthal said.
The 6-foot-7, 290-pounder is currently on an unofficial visit at LSU for its spring game. Rosenthal mentioned the Tigers as one of the teams he was strongly considering.
“It’s close to home, so I would have more support if I went there,” Rosenthal said.
Another thing that worked against the Crimson Tide is that Alabama wants Rosenthal to play on the offensive line, but he would like to play defense. At Nike’s “The Opening” regional in New Orleans, Rosenthal practiced with the defensive linemen instead of the offensive linemen.
He is rated as the nation’s No. 10 offensive tackle and the No. 3 prospect in the state of Louisiana in the Class of 2018.
