One of the state of Alabama’s top recruits moved his commitment decision up by one day, then hours later decided to move it back to Friday.
Markail Benton, a four-star linebacker from Central High School (Phenix City, Ala.), will either commit to Auburn, Alabama or Florida State.
Benton was on Auburn’s campus Saturday for its Big Cat Weekend recruiting event. He will camp at Alabama at some point this week, too. While the Seminoles are in the mix, fans should expect the Crimson Tide or Tigers to land his commitment, with Auburn holding the edge.
The 6-foot-2, 237-pounder is rated as the nation’s No. 6 outside linebacker and the No. 3 player in the state of Alabama, according to the 247Sports Composite.
