TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The recruit who traveled the longest distance for Saturday’s Iron Bowl was more than likely ESPN 300 athlete Anthony Averett. The Alabama commitment made the trip down from New Jersey, but it was well worth the trip to experience his first game inside Bryant-Denny Stadium.

“I had never experienced anything like that before,” Averett said. “I went to the spring game, and there was a lot of people for the spring game, too, but nothing like this game. There was tailgating everywhere, people everywhere, our fans, their fans. I have never experienced that before in my life.”

As for the game itself, Averett expected an Alabama to win but not quite to that extent. Even he was surprised with how lopsided the final outcome was.
