TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It wasn’t your typical senior year for Darius Paige. The 6-foot-3, 280-pound defensive lineman transferred high schools and then had to get acclimated to a new environment and learn a whole new defense. The one thing that stayed constant throughout the transition was his commitment to Alabama. He committed to the Tide in May and never looked back. Last weekend, Paige took his official visit to Tuscaloosa.
