ESPN 60 center Jimmie Taylor (Greensboro, Ala./Greensboro) committed to in-state Alabama on Thursday during an unofficial campus visit.

Taylor said he always knew he had options but the visit gave him good piece of mind about the Crimson Tide. “I went up there and I saw it and I wanted to get it over with,” Taylor said.

Alabama head coach Anthony Grant’s had a hand in the development of more than a few guys (Al Horford, Joakim Noah and Larry Sanders) who made it into the first round of the NBA draft. Don’t think Grant didn’t toss those names around ad nauseum with Taylor.
