The rich have gotten richer.
Brian Robinson, a 2017 4-star running back from Tuscaloosa, Ala., has committed to Alabama, per his Twitter account.
With the commitment of Robinson, Alabama now has three running backs in the class of 2017 who have pledged to the Crimson Tide. Alabama has 5-star Najee Harris and 4-star Cam Akers along with Robinson in the class.
In this year’s recruiting class, the Tide has a verbal commitment from 4-star running back B.J. Emmons.
Robinson is rated as the 12th best prospect in the state of Alabama and the nation’s No. 18 running back in 2017. He becomes Alabama’s eighth commit in next year’s class.
