Tallahassee, Fla, running back Johnathan Vickers grew up an Alabama fan, so when UA head coach Nick Saban pulled him into his office and told him he had an offer from the Crimson Tide, he couldn’t help but smile.

“I wouldn’t say I was shocked, but I was overwhelmed,” Vickers said. “I couldn’t hold my smile back. I was just very excited and thankful.”

The 6-foot, 200-pound back earned the scholarship offer with his performance at Alabama’s camp on Sunday and Monday. Even with all talent on hand, he still made an impression on the UA coaching staff.
