Denzel Devall Commits To Alabama Crimson Tide Over LSU

Another big, versatile defender for Nick Saban's defense.

Denzel Devall, one of the top linebackers/defensive ends in the country, has committed to the Alabama Crimson Tide. Devall stars for Bastrop, Louisiana, and held offers from many of the top programs in the south. He chose Alabama over the LSU Tigers -- a rare win for Alabama in the state.

Roll Bama Roll, the top Alabama blog, cites Nick Saban's early identification and offer in landing the out-of-state prospect. RBR also has this to say about Devall: 

The biggest selling point on Devall is his overall versatility. Weighing in at roughly 6'2 and 240 pounds, he can play at Jack, Mike, or at Will linebacker for the Tide, depending on where the staff chooses to place him. In fact, the versatility is such that several other programs actually recruited him as a 4-3 defensive end. Additionally, Devall has nearly a 4.0 core GPA, so qualifying academically will not be a concern.

Devall's rankings vary significantly from service to service because they differ on his future position. He'll be a perfect fit in Nick Saban's defense. Can the Tide hold on to him until national signing day?
