TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The University of Alabama has just three 2014 commitments to date, but the Crimson Tide are off to a fast start in 2015.

On Saturday, sophomore defensive end Mekhi Brown (Columbus, Ga./Carver) committed to Alabama while on his visit to Tuscaloosa. He already had over 10 offers, including the likes of Auburn, Florida, Florida State and Georgia.

“Just verbally committed to the University of Alabama. #RollTide,” Brown tweeted.

On his visit to UA, the 6-foot-5, 230-pound Brown took in the Tide’s first scrimmage of the spring. He says he’ll likely fill a similar role to Adrian Hubbard, who plays both the Jack and Sam linebacker positions.

Brown joins fellow 2015 commitment Deionte Thompson, who chose Alabama at the Tide’s junior day in February.
