Nigel Knott is a highly-touted defensive back set to join the Alabama secondary in the fall, but he’s not the only talented one in his family. His mom is a cake artist and showed off her skills with an incredible Crimson-Tide themed cake for A-Day on Saturday.

Knott was a four-star recruit and the No. 7 cornerback in the nation, according to the 247 Sports Composite rankings. The Germantown, Miss. native grabbed attention on the Internet last year with video of him making a backflip catch off a wall.
His mother, Sabrina Givens, is a graduate of the French Culinary Institute, and a professional pastry chef. Knott’s father, David Knott, played safety for Ole Miss and his sister, Deja Givens, runs track at Mississippi State.
