5-Star CB Patrick Surtain Jr. Commits To Alabama Over LSU, Clemson

Five-star cornerback Patrick Surtain Jr. surprised many recruiting experts and picked Alabama over LSU as National Signing Day got started Wednesday morning. "They win championships. Over here, we're used to winning, so I want to be a part of that winning culture".

The younger Surtain played his high school ball at American Heritage, patrolling the same defensive backfield as 5-star Tyson Campbell, who announced earlier on Wednesday that he's headed to Georgia to play for head coach Kirby Smart.


Surtain's head coach for his first two years at American Heritage was current Miami cornerbacks coach Mike Rumph, and it's never easy going head-to-head with the likes of LSU and Clemson on the trail. LSU was considered the favorite to land the top defensive back in the nation, but he ultimately made a decision to join Nick Saban and the championship culture at Alabama. He has the physicality, ability, and intelligence it takes to be one of the best cornerbacks in the country. It's a strong signing for Alabama, who entered National Signing Day lagging at the fringe of the top-10 in terms of team rankings. He is now the Editor-in-Chief of Campus Sports. His work has been featured on Sports Illustrated, ESPN.com, FOXSports.com, CBSSports.com and many others.
