A-Day was a success both on and off the field for the University of Alabama. After a competitive spring game, the Crimson Tide picked up commitments back-to-back from Anthony Averett and Deon Johnson.

For Johnson, a wide receiver from Spanish Fort, Ala., he had known for awhile that he was going to commit to Alabama, but he wanted to wait until A-Day to make sure.

“I think Alabama was my choice because I know Alabama, the fans and I think I can go help Alabama,” Johnson said. “I think it’s a good vibe in Tuscaloosa, and I felt like it was home ever since I first went there.”
