TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The plan was for 2014 defensive end Jesse Aniebonam (Olney, Md./Good Counsel) to visit the University of Alabama in the summer, work out in front of head coach Nick Saban, and hopefully do enough to earn a scholarship offer from the Crimson Tide.

On Wednesday, the plan was expedited a little bit. Aniebonam talked on the phone with Saban, who went ahead and extended the offer.
