TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- When ESPN 300 athlete Anthony Averett visited Tuscaloosa the first time for Alabama’s spring game in April, he knew where he wanted to go. In fact, he committed to the Crimson Tide during that weekend. The New Jersey native will be back on campus this weekend for his official visit. The 6-foot, 170-pound Averett is expected to start out at cornerback when he gets to Alabama.
