Editor's note: This is the first installment in a series that introduces Alabama's 2013 recruiting class.

In August, ESPN 150 defensive end DeMarcus Walker committed to Alabama in front of millions on national TV. He chose the Crimson Tide over offers from Auburn, Florida, LSU, USC and many others. Since his commitment, he's trimmed his weight in an effort to play the Jack linebacker position. He plans to participate in the Under Armour All-America Game next month and will enroll early at UA.
