Kalvaraz Bessent, a top cornerback prospect, has committed to Alabama. Bessent stars for Kingsland (Ga.) Camden County High School. Bessent recently visited the Tide and enjoyed the visit.
Bessent is rated as a consensus four-star recruit and is a consensus top-15 player at the corneback position. He also holds offers from Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi State, North Carolina, Ohio State, Ole Miss and Tennessee.
Bessent's combination of length at 6'1 and athleticism make him an elite cornerback prospect and in very high demand, particularly for a team like Alabama which elects to play a lot of press man-to-man on third downs, asking their corners to jam receivers long enough for the blitz to impact the quarterback.
Alabama has signed 28 players from Georgia under head coach Nick Saban. Bessent is the second commitment of the class of 2014 for the Crimson Tide.
